In the country that we live in states that we are free and that we have rights. We don’t have a right to tell another person what they can or cannot do especially when having children. But in the case of a person sexually assaulting a child or another person of course isn’t right not what so ever. So should castration be an option to judges I believe so.

Let’s just say the man raped the women he might go on a rampage and go out a kill as many women as he can because one woman got him caught, got him castrated, and got him put in prison.
I still believe that a violent sex offender will still be very dangerous to the public and shouldn’t be released sooner than his sentence or even at all. But for just sex offenders not violent sex offenders I do think that maybe their sentence should be reduced because sex offenders they get off on just the sexual part as in rape. So when they...
