Castration to human is an inhumane activity. Besides, this type of penalty violates the human rights.

Pro

Public-safety argument: We chemically treat people with mental conditions with drugs that inhibit certain neurological stimuli and reactions to hormones for the protection of themselves and society. Serial rapists should be no different.

Logic argument: Testosterone is produced in the testes. Testosterone is the main sexual-drive hormone of the human male. It produces aggressiveness and is directly related to arousing the male's genitalia which is used to procreate the rape. Removing the testes, removes testosterone production, thereby reducing the chemical impetus to aggressiveness and removes the chemical stimulation needed for an erection. Serial rapists have shown by their actions to be unable to control their actions. Removing a chemical trigger will greatly aid in helping them control their actions.

Moral argument: Humanity and humane both contain the root word, human. Serial rapists (serial, as in prolific and chronic) have forsaken humanity by their inhumane acts. As such, they have forfeited their 'human' status and should be dealt with accordingly.

Mathematical Argument: It is better to harm one and save many others than to save one who will then go on to harm many others. Remember, this is someone who has been found guilty of being a SERIAL rapist. Someone who does (or cannot) stop himself.

Serial rapists fall in to two categories. Those that know it is wrong and want to stop but can't and those that don't want to stop. Therefore, in light of all above, removing the main chemical (or in this case, the organ that produces the chemical) that is a sex-drive and aggressive stimulator in criminals who have been shown to be repeat offenders is the right and moral thing to do. To do any less is a disservice to humanity and the rapist himself.

I agree. Castration has a proven track record as a cure for compulsive rapists
