The idea of castrating serial rapists has been out there for a while. People are torn on the issue because many claim that it is a violation of human rights. Castration - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Here's my response to those people. Who's human rights are we more concerned about violating here? IF these serial rapists were to ever escape (and that HAS happened) 9 times out of 10 (if not higher) they will rape again. So are we more concerned about protecting the rapists human rights or the rights of their would be future victims? Rights actually are legally allowed to be taken from people (at least in the US). Don't believe me? Look into gun laws. If you use a gun to commit a felony you lose your right to own or use a gun for the rest of your life. I am talking about serial rapists only. With single rapists there is always the scenario of date rape, which many times was consensual and turned out later that the girl changed her mind or regretted the decision. I am not talking about that. I am talking about people who have developed a clear and obvious pattern of raping repeatedly, aka serial rapists. I vote yes. They abused their rights and violated others rights so they lose the right to have sex again if you ask me. Serial rapists HAVE escaped from prison to rape again and you can't say that this won't continue to happen in the future. As for how they are castrated? I don't care. It looks like chemical castration has more side effects than the surgical method so some might not like that but then again some might prefer to have everything non functional but still intact. I say let them choose their method. Just as long as it happens.
