Chemical castration for pedophiles in South Korea. From Google Images
On Sunday, South Korea enacted a law allowing “Chemical castration” to be administered to convicted sex offenders who have attacked children under the age of 16.
According to Wikepedia, chemical castration is is the administration of medication designed to reduce libido and sexual activity, usually in the hope of preventing rapists, child molestors and other sex offenders from repeating their crimes. It is not permanent and the new South Korean law would allow it to be administered for a duration of up to 15 years.
South Korea is the first Asian country to adopt this punishment and one ministry official said that dozens of criminals may receive this sentence each year. Human rights groups have strongly protested this law, but to no avail.
