    Default Poland okays forcible castration for pedophiles

    WARSAW (Reuters) – Poland on Friday approved a law making chemical castration mandatory for pedophiles in some cases, sparking criticism from human rights groups.

    Under the law, sponsored by Poland's center-right government, pedophiles convicted of raping children under the age of 15 years or a close relative would have to undergo chemical therapy on their release from prison.

    "The purpose of this action is to improve the mental health of the convict, to lower his libido and thereby to reduce the risk of another crime being committed by the same person," the government said in a statement.

    Prime Minister Donald Tusk said late last year he wanted obligatory castration for pedophiles, whom he branded 'degenerates'. Tusk said he did not believe "one can use the term 'human' for such individuals, such creatures."

    *sigh*

    I think Mr. Tusk is taking this a bit too far...

    Unfortunately this is something people should be aware of, and is a touchy subject. How to RESOLVE IT is even a touchy subject.

    This sort of thing should only be employed in cases wherein the offender has no chance of rehabilitation. It isn't nice, but if that's what they have to do, that's what they have to do. They should have temporary chemical 'treatment', not permanent; as chances for rehabilitation will probably come up over time, so it should be a 'temporary containment' of such things until they can solve their problem permanently.

    P.S.
    I've heard that sometimes some people inexplicably become pedophiles out of the blue... Due to Brain Cancer!

    Woah! That headline is misleading! I assume chemical castration is a bit more reversable than the surgical sort.

    Not sure what to think of this. Pedophiles are surely the most vile human beings on earth and I have long said (without entirely meaning it) that they should be castrated. Yet it still seems wrong.

    The article doesn't say whether its a temporary or permanent treatment.

    If they're talking permanent, I hope they don't wrongly convict anyone.

    Not sure how you apologize for that.

    Good point. But in cases where indisputable evidence exists I vote for execution in lieu of castration, as it has no recidivism rate. You can't rehabilitate a pedophile. I have my doubts if rapists can be rehabilitated either. The violent should not be allowed to live with the peaceful.

    I am against this. If a pedophile is that likely to re-offend, he or (she, don't know how that would work) shouldn't be let out or should be moved to a psychiatric/halfway house type facility at the end of their sentence.

    For once, I agree with you.

    You could eliminate this fear quite easily, by avoiding people underage. It's really that simple.

    But...but... I'm a babysitter! Wait, no... no I'm not.

    I'm preschool teacher! Hold on... nope not that either.

    ...Camp Counselor? The host of a childrens program? Sunday School teacher?

    Oh thank God I'm none of those... it sure would be easy to be accused if I were though.
