[Rebecca Jackson Pafford] - & what about WOMEN that do it
[Shawn Simmons] - They have proven time and again that castration does not work. It is a mental defect that can not be fixed. For them, it is not about thr sex, it is about dominance over a child. The ONLY thing thay will fix them is rope amd a tall tree.
[Kacie Goodson Priest] - How about letting the guy that killed the predator that he found attacking his young daughter have at them. He seems to get the job done right the first time.
[Katie Alcox] - Texas needs to catch on
[Linda Calaway Morgan] - Look, I am not for molesters, my granddaughter has been molested. But, at least I realized that castration WILL NOT solve this problem, nor will it slow it down. Molestation starts in the brain. It is a mental thing, why don't you castrate their brain. Just as a rapist doesn't rape for sexual gratification, it is a control/ power thing. You seriously can't tell me that there are more people out there that realize this is stupid. I think more than ever I see just how uneducated and ignorant people truly are.
[Austin N Anna Ashe] - I castrate my goats with rubber bands. There are fairly cheap instruments for this procedure. Easy peasy!
[Laura Goodson] - It takes balls to propose a bill like that.
[Jake Knight] - Cutting their dick off sounds better, but that will work too.
[Paula Contreras] - As a victim of child sexual assault I must agree this is something I know a lot of us would love to see happen. Sick people deserve it for what they did :/
[Robert Green] - I think we should hang there nasty Ass every first Sunday of the month and show it on the evening news as a warning to all the rest of these perverted, nasty Demons...
[Linda Calaway Morgan] - Castration won't solve a thing. It's a mental thing, ask any molester or rapist, they will use their digits or other objects. It won't stop their minds, just their penis from working. Do you people not realize this? It won't solve this issue.
[Tiffiny Friesen] - Though in theory it may sound like a wonderful idea the problem is in the head above the waist not below it. If you do this and release them into the public thinking the problem is solved you are wrong. The penis is a tool used by a sick mind. The scary truth is that if you taje that tool out of his hand without fixing his head he's just going to find other "tool." And that may be literally.
[Peggy Felts] - LOL hopefully the old fashion way... Chemical castration is to Easy. I say take them out to the fields, gag them so noone can hear their cries for help and don't bother the tax payers with the price of anesthesia
[Carole Sanders] - Castration is a start but it won't prevent them from harming children. Death is the only cure for these twisted freaks. We know that won't happen so we'll keep them alive in prison then turn them loose to continue raping children.
[Rebecca Lynn Cowan] - If they are a true and honest child molester, sure! Not a 20 year old kid who decided mutually with a 16 or 17 year old to be involved with each other.
[Jess Bell] - about damned time! and women predators lose ALL of their fingers.
[Adrian Alvarado] - 100 % Agreed. BUT psychologically this will sexually frustrate them even more and will have the chance of becoming more violent.
[Terry Astudillo] - Personally I think they should be locked away in a lab and used as lab rats. Leave the poor animals alone. Let these worthless creeps pay society back for ruining someone's life.
[Magally Sacramento] - Awesome idea but it wont stop them from molesting a child.
[Damien Maher] - With a rusty knife without anesthetic.
[Aaron Lawrence] - As awful and monstrous as child molestation is, mutilation and torture is illegal as well. Two wrongs don't make it right. What is this, the dark ages?
[Shelina Blystone Costlow] - Castration doesn't solve the problem... They still have a penis...besides that we are assuming that all child predators have something to castrate. what about the females who commit these crimes? Besides that...even without "equipment" they can still commit the crime. Do a little research on the psychology. Most crimes like this are not even about sexual gratification...it's about the ego trip the molester gets from the control they have over the victim. Yeah I'm all about harsh punishment for offenders, but be realistic here.
[Erika Harper] - That's great! OR, instead of animal testing, we can have pedophile testing!
[Melanie Corley] - Oh, I fear that the reason they are a child predator is an imbalance they have (whatever that is) and castration will only push them to do something else to try and satisfy their desire. Lock em up or put them all on Shutter Island together so they can "have at it"
[Natalie Marie Porter] - Finally some real punishment!!! And woman predators should be sewn shut!!!
[Mary Ann Dickerson] - Don't have a problem with it, but that won't stop the abuse. They'll just find another way. The problem is their brains not their sex organs.
[David Anderson] - The Constitution still applies. This is the United States not China. Nobody should have that much power to order this to be done.
[Christie Barrett] - The only rehabilitation for sexual predators is death.
[Mary Lambeth] - This has shown to not work in sex preditors..they are broken in their head not penis or testicles. Doing this has only shown increased violence and aggression. The only thing to do is either kill them or lock them up forever. There is no fixing them.
[Vernon W. Peck] - If this happens we need to be sure our court system doesn't make any mistakes. We have far too many court cases that someone is convicted of crimes only to find out years later that it was someone else that did it. Otherwise, it's a good idea.
[Candy Crochet Cortez Kidder] - How about a bill that does same to Presidents who choose to ignore and change our Constitution!
[Cynthia G. Bergener] - I have always said Castration for all sex offenders including rapists.
[Sarah Rice] - This could also be a great deterrent for potential abusers. But unfortunately it won't fix their diseased minds and they would find other ways to inflict physical harm. Keep them locked up for life.
[Edie Brunson] - I don't think it would make a difference. Yes, it would prevent them from him from having sex with the child, but it would not stop the urge or them doing other things to the child. Would be better to buy and island somewhere in the middle of the ocean and send them ALL there. No way of escape. Teach them how to grow their own food and we would be done with them.
[Amanda Garrett] - I agree and dont care about the cruel and unusual punishment!!! They deserve worse js
[Christina Joy Wilks] - As appealing as the idea is to survivors such as myself, the reality is that castration does not stop the issue. It's a mental issue and even chemical castration has been proven to not keep predators from the disgusting desires.
[Jim Dujka] - While it's an interesting idea, it will never pass as such medical procedures fall under cruel and unusual punishment. I'm surprised it is even being submitted as a bill.
[Linda Calaway Morgan] - @Nicole you are only partially right welcome to how molesters think 101 they don't have to have a penis they will use digits and objects. It isn't just sexual. It's mental. You just need to research more.
[Linda Calaway Morgan] - Why don't you research the subject. IT won't do a thing to stop a predator. Nothing. You all are assuming they think with their penises, they think with their brains. It has been asked and asked that if they (rapists or molesters) were castrated would it stop them, THEY SAID NO !!!!!!
[Leah Gamble-Sturges] - Molesters are sick psychologically, if you castrate them, that will not stop the problem. If the penis is removed, they will find other ways to commit the act.
[Stephanie Hastings] - testosterone is not the problem. The problem is in the mind.
[Jackie French] - Only if they rip them off and let them bleed out.they have already found that castration wont stop them from all forms of molestation , abuse and murder because it's a mental disorder.I am all for the death penalty on crimes like these.
[Jason Voyles] - Obama will veto it. wouldn't surprise me
[Lisa Goins Phillips] - Body mutilation does not resolve pedophilia!
[Robert Moorer] - omg toooo funnny. an what they gonna do about the female predators cause they are out there tear their pussies out. rotflmfao
[Kim Hughes] - Sexual predators who have had voluntary castration say it does not stop their brain from having the desire nor does it stop them from acting on that desire.
[Angela Tankersley] - Imprison child predators with the punishment of death!!!! Especially repeat offenders!!!
[Patricia Rollins] - As good as the idea sounds...and believe me I would be all for it, that will not solve the problem. Determined people will use other things to continue the abuse. There is obviously a malfunction in the hardwiring somewhere. That needs to be fixed too...somehow.
[Joel Wesson] - First good idea I've heard from a republican in several months.candy get over it.the supreme court upheld Obama care, time to move on.geez.
[Chris Holloway] - I like it but wouldn't that go against our bill of rights under "cruel and unusual punishment"?
FOX 4 News: Republican Rep. Steve Hurst of Alabama is proposing a bill in 2014 to castrate child predators. - 50th Comments
[Nathan McBride] - all for it but after that what happens when they get out do it again and there's no DNA evidence left behind now from no balls ???
[Gregory Harwell] - They should kill those damn child predators.
[Rita Taber] - sounds like he needs to educate himself further on the subject. that will not stop rape and molestation?? please
[Sandy Giovingo Wolver] - Put in a prison island for life
Maybe Alcatraz reopen
[Chad Wendy Freeman] - Will never happen. Too inhumane. Too many PC people out there. Our government thinks it's ok for people to work and support those who don't want to work. Why would they castrate people? Everyone can be rehabilitated. According to our government. Criminals and deadbeats have the easiest lives in America
[Bobby Lynnwood Gray] - Without numbing it first I hope
[Scott Gregor] - Just hang them and save us all money and use it for the handicapped children and seniors!
[Tim Fortner] - It will not work. My "fixed " dogs try things all the time. Castrate their big head and it will solve the problem permanently.
[Kim Hughes] - The pleasure is experienced by the brain not the penis or the testicles. The only way to stop the desires and please is to stop the brain from functioning. Sexual deviants are not rehab capable.
[Shiryl Nelson] - Good idea for who ever they rape. Age does not matter when u are raped!
[Terrie Brashear Knowles] - Why not do the same to those who have children and fail to support them.
[Ashley Nichole Odom] - We mine as well Lynch them in front of the public like back in the old days so we can watch and get our satisfaction of seeing them suffer...(not being serious) I mean they deserve the worst things our human minds can imagine but can we just put them away till they die and let God handle their eternal life of suffering in hell?
[Conrad Wright Jr] - Holy crap a republican is actually putting a good bill forward, just one question what if the predatory is a women?
[David Anderson] - Guilty or innocent,the Constitution still applies.
[Kari Beason] - Physical castration their bodies would no longer make testosterone in the hopes it would most definitely reduce their sex drive to zero. But have you ever seen a neutered dog try to mate? Well they do, they will try, even tho they have no balls soooo in theory this sounds great yes cut the balls off these sick idiot but where theres a will there's a way. They need physical castration and chemical together.
[Rachel Shanks] - I don't think sex offenders are looking to breed with their victims, they're only looking to either physically or mentally get off - both of which castration would not prevent. Their genitalia should be mutilated beyond recognition.
[Robert Davis] - Just shoot em and be done with them.
[Alex Rowley] - A step in the right direction. I still think convicted offenders (especially repeat offenders) should get a bullet to the brain though.
[Lisa Garcia] - They will only get worse!! Probably turn to killing. Not a good idea. Its in the mind. Remove the brain lol
[Jessica Tompkins] - After having a child and truly feeling the fear that someone could abuse your child I am all for this. If anyone touched my baby wrong I would do a lot worse to them.
[Christine Parker King] - Jesus dealt with the spirit not the man ....its a spirit not the man...read your word ....that's not going to change nothing...that spirit will just find another house to enter ....so I guess there will be alot of nubbs ...before its all over with ...women do the same thing what will they do for them
[Dawn Reed] - That's the least they should get. Definitely a start.
[Adolfo Viguerias-Guzman] - I have to say that I agree with this Republican on this topic, Hell yeah!
[Boyd Raburn] - With a rusty dull knife i hope and no pain killer. His victim got none
[David Green] - I'm from Talladega County,Alabama where he is from and I encourage Texas leaders to do the same here!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
[Cyndi Cox- Bennett] - I agree but however keep in mind those that are falsely accused. It happens every day just cause either teenagers or wives get angry and said I will pay you back and summit a false report. I personally know of two men that happened to. And spent prison time and now has to register and report their every move. Those of you are wondering if they were innocent how did it go that far? Cause they didn't have the money to fight it nor hire a proper attorney.
[Ralph Smole] - without anesthesia
[Alex Guzman] - What bout those cases where the victim recants the story? Castrate the victim then?
[Austin N Anna Ashe] - They'll still have a penis and hands though right?
[Wilda Knight Sargent] - This should have been done a long time ago !!!
[Scott Rita Tierney] - go for it would be nice to see something happen to them
[Linda Calaway Morgan] - They don't sew up a lady. Female castration is cutting off external genitalia. None of this will work so why worry aboyt it. Pedophilia us a mental issue, castration of genitalia isn't going to solve a thing unless you cut off his hands, feet, lips and tongue. Even then I am sure they will find a way.
[Alberta Martinez] - It could save billions if taxpayers dollars instead of jailing and feeding them. I agree. If u can't use it the way God intended then cut it off!
[Linda Calaway Morgan] - A female castration is removing the external genitalia.
[Linda Calaway Morgan] - Chad it has on the state level. Texas has a castration law. But, it still won't stop molesters.
[Linda Calaway Morgan] - All they have to do is think about it. Remove their genitalia, eyes whatever. Unless you remove their hands feet and mouth they can still molest.
[Linda Calaway Morgan] - What is the biggest sexual organ we have people? The brain. Even without genitalia molesters will still molest and rapists will still rape.
[Djebi Loftin] - Fantastic idea!!
[Terri Gaither Jackson] - I totally agree....
[Sandi McGarry] - They'll just use their hands or some other tool! Sadly, child predators can NOT be rehabilitated!
[Cretia Guard] - I think that's a bit extreme... There are other ways to violate a child.
[Tina Thompson] - I support this idea 100%..........
[Rebekah Howard Wallace] - It needs to be done ASAP
[Casey N Amanda] - Bring it on!! And use old rusty dull scissors to do it!!
[Chris Carter] - Cut all them baby rapers dicks off.
[Chad Smith] - Isn't a bullet cheaper ??
[JoAnn Huffman] - sounds good to me :)
[Medha Bharadwaj] - I agree. But they should do more than just castrate them. Use them as lab rats like Terru Austudillo said. Why harm innocent animals when there are these sickos available.
[Larry Alan Alford] - About time!! I say tattoo piece of shit child molester on their forhead too.
[David Anderson] - No judge should have the power to order this to be carried out.

[Diane Scolamiero LaFrancis] - A decent idea but that won't stop them. They'll use something else to rape with. It's in the brain not the gonads
[Ella Miranda Strain] - Sew up the womens vajayjays!!!
[Danyell Bigd Bewley] - And there are people who are wrongly accused and prosecuted.
[Mike Becker] - How about target practice for the military... That would send a couple of messages!
[Rhonda Denise Green] - Awesome Idea for the Men!! But, I agree with Rebecca, What about the Women out there that commit the crimes?? What will be their punishment?
[Mary Manwell] - Men and women ! Pour acid on them , make them suffer like the made those babies !
[Joey Chaires-Smith] - Now if we could get abusive parents included......
[Jannetta Mosby] - Castrating them will not get rid of the urge... just their ability to penetrate, which doesn't always happen anyway. They will still molest children. What else ya got? I have a suggestion.
[Priscilla Sims] - MAKE IT NATIONAL!!!!!
[Samuel Bernal Jr.] - Yeah as good as this sounds, it's not gonna be effective
[Samantha Sanders] - Okay.first off. Are we Americans or from some crazed third world country where slicing someone's hand off for a piece of bread is okay? We still have a constitution and in that constitution, I do believe we are not to delegate cruel and unusual punishment. With that point being made. I have no soft spot for anyone that hurts children, believe me, I am a mother. However, I was an abused child. It took me many years to come to terms with the crime that was committed against me and the perpetrator himself. Despite the HELL that I went through, I had to come to terms with it myself and having someone hurt him to exact revenge for me would not have helped!! I have come to forgive this person and happily move on with my life. Hurting him would not have done anything for me and I truly believe he hurts himself everyday mentally dealing with what he did. So who exactly are any of you to play God????? (Disgusted)
[Zina Knight] - This will not work. This is a heart condition. They'll just find another way.
[Melinda Sawyer] - I strongly agree but for evidence proven cases because there are those few that are wrongly convicted
[Miguel-Mike Garcia] - Castrate them ..,also cut the legs and arms that will keep them away .
[Evalinda Ramon] - Even if u do castrate they still have the urges and figure out how to hurt a child....
[Angela Land] - Castration does not stop them...they find other means of sexually abusing others..that was tried in the 80s
[Terra Kay Brown McDaniel] - There is no punishment too harsh for people that hurt children. If we went back to hangings and public floggings it might deter some of them! I know first hand that these predators will not stop what they do, It is a sexual preference to them. And it is all about sex! it is not the same thing as rape, they prefer children. And those that get caught... from the point of view of the victims... they are lucky to be alive. But sadly, killing them or castrating them will never undo the pain and humiliation that their victims must deal with the rest of their lives.
[Sherry Ellzey] - That needs to be done in every state!!!
[Nancy Cortez] - I vote yes!!!for evil animals that do that to children.
[Morgan Lee Richardson] - Wow listen to you idiots!! All of you saying Yeah do it cut em off n cut their hands n feet too! WTF IS WRONG WITH YOU IDIOTS WAKE UP! This is the damn government saying Hey lets take away someone's right just because they hurt someone. If you give into this you are allowing them to slowly take control of us all!! Think about it! Now lock em up and get them treatment because they are mentally ill?! Yes I agree to that but to inflict cruel and unusual punishment is a violation of the Constitution and I for one wi oppose this bill should it make it to the Senate Floor.
[Kevin N Cherie] - They should go thru old military records as well. In the 80's they did not have to register and those are not public!
[Jillian Calvert] - About damn time! Cause if one these sick bastards touch my girls that's what would happen!
[Connie McGuire Murdock] - It will probably never pass....they don't do much that is right and should be done...I hope it passes..
[Robert Kincheloe] - I say cut em & cut they're hands and feet too.....
[Chris Robinson] - With the amount of people released from Texas prisons by DNA after serving long prison sentences I am firmly against this. However there should be if an automatic sentence placed on any "victim" if an man is castrated then proved innocent.
[Patrick Carey] - Anorher proven method is a single large caliber projectile delivered at high speed into the medulla oblangata that causes an instantaneous solution when applied to convicted child predators.
[Mary Czarny Webb] - Further yet... Any woman (or man) with children who knowingly is in or gets in a relationship with a sex offender or know criminal should also be held accountable when their child is molested or beaten by that person.
[Lindsey Murphy] - Why was this bill not proposed and passed years ago???!
[Laura Goodson] - I would hope he sought Dr's advice on this to make sure this would stop their sexual urges. I've had a male cat and a dog neutered who still tried, and appeared that it worked. I would also feel sorry for those wrongly accused. But for those that there is no doubt, I'd rather lock them up forever or give them the death penalty. Save expensive Drs services for needier people.
[Gini Sampson] - read the article folks!
[Amie Argueta] - Controversial my A** ... RIP that S*** off
[Marco Antonio Salgado] - Even though I like the idea I think it would be better just to kill them on site.
[Christina Record Snyder] - A female can be castrated as well. Although..... Most predators use their hands to molest. I would have a hard time passing just this law. Keep in mind these are sick individuals that at some point were touched or hurt in a sexual manner themselves. Although it would help with the use of that sexual organ it will not stop them from using other objects or committing more offenses. Also even though most states have the "I am a sex offender" law. It is not required to put a sign in the residence yard but to just register as one online. So do your community checks online to help keep children safe.
[Laurence Melissa Rooks] - It helps but not full prevention~ the brain triggers all actions~ so unfortunately it's not full proof! Sad but true~ so the brain has to be adjusted as well!!!!
[Monica O'Shea] - Support it- but only if the instruments to do it are dull kitchen knives!!!
[Ryan Gillespie] - It's about Damn time
[Brenda Jo] - And what they do falls under u took someone else's rights away so give me your balls so u can't do it again!! How many will think twice if the punishment for it is ur balls?
[Carissa Armstrong] - Finally someone thinking right! I say we just put them all on a rocket and send them into space OR weigh down a submarine and sink it.
[Stephanie Marie Dee] - About time! But what about the female predators???? They do exist.....
[Chad Kirk] - Stand by....let me get my knife!!!
[Tamara Hauk] - Why wait... let's start today :)
[Crystal Everett] - Sounds great to me. Should have been done along time ago.
[Teresa Ingle] - That is all well and good but the bad news is a predator will use something else to get off. Predators cannot be rehabbed. It is a known fact so they will still do it it just won't be rape in the manner we think of. Sad
[Kristen Johnson] - Many, including myself, will argue that pedophilia is very much a mental issue that castration will not solve. Many predators already, and still will, use other items. Let me be clear. I am in NO WAY excusing them, saying "it's a mental issue, it's not their fault" It's very much their fault. I'm saying here that castration will not fix the problem.
[Ashley Govea] - Holy. Shit. Where doo I cast my vote!
[Claudia Alejandra Mascorro] - Yes that should have been proposed a long time ago
[Patrick Ripley] - Erika Harper. It is not against the law to be a pedophile. It is against the law to act out on a desire to rape kids. If someone knows he is a pedophile and never acts on his/her desire for kids....... Have they committed a crime. Next time Erica think before you post something
[Mandy Alsop] - While in theory this sounds great. Our justice system is not fool proof
[Lisa Landry] - Shawn Simmons is correct. Castration does not work. The mind is a powerful thing. Even if a guy's penis is not working, the sexual desire is there....therefore, they will use some other device to fulfill their sexual desires. These types of people need to be out of the general population; either dead or in prison forever. Pedophilia is not curable; there is no rehab for this. Again, here is a politician who is misinformed and has not done his homework on a subject he endorses. Typical.
[Linda Calaway Morgan] - Many people have children and aren't married. Some are single parents to several. They take care of them just fine. But, why are you worried about that under this thread. Does it really affect you? And I think were discussing bigger issues right now. But, I know it's rare what 1% or less has that many children now. Sarcasm.

[Linda Calaway Morgan] - Reading the article says surgical castration.
[Linda Calaway Morgan] - I would much rather see legislation on some that will work. Castration isn't the fix at all.
[Elizabeth Garcia] - SOUNDS GOOD :-D
That's the least they deserve vote vote vote
[Linda Calaway Morgan] - Chad, it doesn't stop molestation anyway. My point is 3 men have opted to it. And they all 3 still have the urge to molest.
[Brenda Weightman] - Sounds like a fine idea to me :)
[Linda Calaway Morgan] - Why do you all think rapists and molesters only do it for pleasure? If that is your way of thinking you are very wrong.
[Linda Calaway Morgan] - Texas does have a casratration law on the books. But,I knew that before even reading the story. lol
[Disy Yarbrough] - May not stop them.
[Disy Yarbrough] - May not stop them for abusing children.
[Jared N Kimberly Pereira] - That's not enough!
[Chelsea Lytle] - Best news I've heard all day. It's about damn time that these sickos get what they deserve.
[Catherine McGary] - Cut off their hands too
[Rhonda Drew Graham] - Castrate and cut their arms and legs off . Or just put a bullet to the head!!
[Teresa Wade Sheroke] - Yeah I've always said that! Like the question about the women who do it. What you do about them?
[Maureen Doherty] - Oh, I don't think that it will pass.
[Amanda Raley] - This is ridiculous. The republican party is coming to an end.
[Charles Pearce III] - That would be a scriptural solution.
[Steve N Carolyn Clark] - Sounds like a winner.
[Omar Ambriz] - so what's the holdup
[Lowrrie Sanders] - Is Obamacare going to pick up the cost?
[Warren Hendricks] - why dont thay just put the sick bastards in a room with all the parents and let the perents kick the shit out of them
[Wendy Mattoon Jones] - As a victim and the mother of a victim...I'd vote for it!!!
[Barbara France Raper] - I have wondered why they haven't always done that!!!!!!!!
[Catherine Amalie Southard] - This needs to be in all states and start with those already released. And it should be done prior to release from prison and no anesthesia. They might feel part if the pain they caused if so.
[Jonathan JP] - What are we barbarians?
[James Gilliland] - Hell cut it all off then shove it down their throat
[Sheila Haught] - They used too! In the old days
[Ricardo Pelayo] - If there's undeniable proof...quick death penalty. Why should they get a second chance at life?
[Gayle Husband] - It is about time.
[Vicky Howell] - someone finally heard what I was thinking! Women could be "spayed" for lack of a better word.
[Charles Austin] - Hell.I for it all the way.Amen.
[Scipio Clay Igbeare] - I dont have a problem with castration really; however I worry about the wrongly accused. Furthermore, until you change the mind the issue will remain.
[Jose Ruiz] - Kill them basterds ....thats the way to stop em
[Judith Stroud] - Lobotomy and castration. Castration will not cure what goes on in their minds.
[Carolyn Kocian] - It's about time'
[Cami Nelson] - It's about freakin time!!!
[Earl Anthony] - we sure have some stupid people in office..he needs to do some research .he may find out he needs to be castrated.. RESEARCH FIRST ..
[Mya Ramos] - it is about time..
[Darlene Nunn] - I've said that for at least the last 50 years. If u can't control yourself or medication isn't helping, u need to be castrated!
[Marie Rogers Hicks] - Yes, I'm on board! How does people know castration would not work? Never know til you try. It's bound to have some negative effect on em, do it!!
[Shelly Herbert Stein] - This should be a law in every state
[Marilyn Puphal-Fleish] - I don't think that will work but, I do know that a lobotomy would do wonders..........
[Terry Dunning] - Oh, hell yeah! Then hang by their feet & use them for kick/punch bags till worn out!
[Jim Hughes] - It's about time someone came up with that ideal!
[Stacy Bailey] - Let this happen!!!
[Terry Michalle Lockridge] - Wouldn't lethal injection be cheaper?
[Rachel Rymers Flores] - Castration well not Stop them,they well use objects instead of their penis.I say Perform Lobotomies.Remove Part of the Brain that causes them to hurt children.
[Bradley Huckeba] - Vote yes all day.
[Audrianna S Cabrera] - As a mother I think that's a great idea, but I also think that death penalty is a better idea. Because there are other ways that these animals could do harm since they get to walk free after a few years in prison.
[Jan Mickelsen] - good for him, hope it becomes Law, and yes, what about the females????

[Ray Martin] - I would vote yes!
[David Anderson] - Suppose somebody is wrongly accused and these surgeries are done. Then what?
[Rheannon Wallace] - that is AWESOME!
[Ricky MacDonald] - Excellent idea..!!!
[Terrie Calvert Olsen] - Good idea and why not go ahead and do it but it isn't going to solve the problem. The only thing is life without parole for both men and women. The women predators should get automatic hysterectomies so when our untrustworthy prison guards rape them at least they wont be able to bring a child into the world while imprisoned. But it will never pass anyway.
[Cindy Pate] - I'm moving to Alabama and supporting him.
[Chad Wendy Freeman] - Linda it's a law in Texas but the offender has to opt for it. Sounds like a flawed law to me. Why should the criminal get to decide whether he's castrated or not?
[Chris Villarreal] - sounds more like a publicity stunt than a good resolution. longer sentencing depending on the gravity of situation. all the way should get life in jail.
[Courtney Spencer] - and for women predators what are you going to do? what a dumb bill
[Bonita Anna Gonzales] - I'd vote it in, but it's never going to happen.
[Cindy Cortez] - I might suggest numbing it permanently, no feelings, no urges!
[Jennifer Wolfe Anders] - It won't fix the issue completely, but at least it would hopefully help decrease the urges by getting rid of the hormone factories aka testicles.
[Angela Powell] - Chances are if people know that they are going to "pay" for a crime, they probably wouldn't commit it in the first place.
