Pakistan: Standing committee approves chemical castration of sexual abusers

[thecurrent.pk – 6/5/21]

National Assembly’s Standing Committee on Law and Justice has approved chemical castration, which falls in the Criminal Law bill.

As per the Criminal Law Bill 2020, if the accused commits the crime again after serving a life sentence, he will be sentenced to chemical castration.

Under this law, special court, anti-rape crises cell, and special committee would be set up to hear rape cases and registered complaints.

Savages. Somebody needs to make sure these animals don’t have continued access to nuclear weapons.

Whack argument..I am Pakistani and take offense to being called a savage… Let’s flip the script, ” Sex offenders – Savages. Somebody needs to make sure these animals don’t have continued access to children.”

Don’t appreciate the generalization? Neither do I

He didn’t call you a savage he called the idiots making the law savages.

@Jack

They do.

Many American states would like to have this as well, make no mistake—and put them on the registry to boot! How many of us would gladly accept chemical castration (which means medication) if it would get us off the registry? I also suspect Pakistan has far fewer men prosecuted for sex crimes. I’d be careful about throwing stones—countries don’t get more punitive about male sexual behavior than America.

California was cutting edge.

The Most Critical Option

For in 1938 L. N. Turrentine began offering the option of voluntary castration coupled with long terms of probation to men convicted of sex offenses.3 The vast majority of those men who took advantage of the program were convicted under Section 288 of the California Penal Code* and the alternative to castration for them was clearly a long prison sentence.

Here is another reason this pisses me off. Talk about FAKE NEWS! Since 2004 this LA Times article has lied and lied!

Girl’s Molestation, Murder in 1949 Prompted Tougher Laws
“As hard as it is to believe in this era of concern about protecting children, until 1950 molesting a child was a misdemeanor in California. The molestation and murder of 6-year-old Linda Joyce Glucoft changed all that.”

The was already a life sentence, then 1 – Life. Obviously not a misdemeanor. Maybe it’s hard to believe because it is a lie.
