BUENOS AIRES – Argentine Province OKs Chemical Castration for Repeat Rapists.  The government of the western Argentine province of Mendoza on Monday approved a comprehensive plan to deal with repeat rapists that includes “chemical castration.”  David Mangiafico, an official in the provincial justice ministry, said that Gov. Celso Jaque signed the decrees that provide the legal framework for the initiative, which was studied for months by a scientific committee.  “Now the training phase for the medical teams begins and the castration plan will be ready to be implemented on those convicted for rape who expressed their willingness to be subjected to it,” Mangiafico told reporters.  Eleven convicted rapists in Mendoza’s prisons have said they will be willing to submit to the treatment – which is administered via drugs – according to recent press accounts. In Mendoza, a rape case is reported every three days, on average, according to government figures.  Chemical castration, which is already practiced in Germany, in parts of the United States, Italy, Chile, Colombia, El Salvador and the Dominican Republic, according to Jaque, consists of administering injections every six months that diminish the production of testosterone and inhibit sexual appetite.

    As a victim of rape in Orange County, CA. I fully support chemical castration. The men who raped me are allowed to continue committing their crimes over and over again, this theory could save alot of women alot of grief and pain, both physical and emotional, good job Buenas Aires, too bad theUSA does not care enough about its people to implement this kind of punishment.
