Republican Alabama Governor Kay Ivey has recently signed a bill into law which will require child molesters to undergo chemical castration one month before being released from custody, and will also make sure offenders have to foot the bill for the treatment.

Am I the only one who is going to vote on this? How about you, HulaGirl - do you have an opinion?

There are more children molested than we realize.  It is a well kept secret. 

I sat on a jury when a man here was accused of child molestation.  You would all be surprised how hard it is to convict someone who sits there so sweet and making all the excuses in the world about how his actions were misconstrued.  I truly felt conflicted when I'd look at this little man who seemed so benign and harmless. 
Then you see two little girls testify about what he did.  It's not hard to see how they were manipulated and how the manipulator was now trying to convince everyone else. 
The jury I sat on convicted the guy unanimously.  He has been in prison ever since and he will be for many years to come. 
Perhaps if there was a chemical castration he could be freed eventually but I personally don't see this guy ever changing his ways.   
And God said "let there be light".
Then General Electric pushed him out of the way and the era of Corporate America was born to rule the universe.

Actually, I thought I had voted. 

What child molestors do is so gross that one is tempted to respond to their actions with harsh punishment.

As far as I know there is no solid proof that chemical castration solves the problem. 

Ali is right when she says they do not admit guilt. Their brains require rewiring. Chemical castration does not do that.

Only THREE people have an opinion on this?  
C'mon people!  Remember how important it is to vote!

I voted that the issue is "complicated," but actually, I don't think I'd mind if this extreme measure is implemented, considering the crime.
