[Ed. – Liberals thought southern states were taking a hard line on just abortion ain’t seen nothing yet.]
An Alabama lawmaker has a plan to permanently and physically punish someone convicted of certain sex offenses against children.
The bill, known as HB 379, would make those sex offenders have to undergo chemical castration before they leave prison.
HB 379 was introduced by State Representative Steve Hurst, R-Calhoun County.
He said the bill will be for sex offenders over the age of 21 that committed sex offenses against children. “They have marked this child for life and the punishment should fit the crime,” said Hurst.
This is not Hurst’s first time introducing the bill.
“I had people call me in the past when I introduced it and said don’t you think this is inhumane? I asked them what’s more inhumane than when you take a little infant child, and you sexually molest that infant child when the child cannot defend themselves or get away, and they have to go through all the things they have to go through. If you want to talk about inhumane–that’s inhumane,” said Hurst.
Hurst is hoping this would make sex offenders think twice.
