    Should convicted rapists be forced to undergo a permanent vasectomy to prevent unfair pregnancies?

    Just because they did it once, doesn't mean they will do it again. Yeah right. Like a shark smelling blood the rapist will seek another target sooner or later. It is an addiction to power and control that is all-important. Why should the victims bear the seed of these abominations of society?

    I guess it really depends on the cirumstances of the individual case.  Rape is never right, but not every rapist is a serial offender.  I believe that, in every case,  the public should be able to be confident that the rapist will never rape again.  I wish this was realistic! When a man has raped just for the thrill of it, a vasectomy will stop any pregnancies resulting if he offends again.  Sadly it won't stop the violence, and the appaling physical and emotional scars left for the victims to suffer.  I would be more inclined to support something which inhibits the sex drive and aggression, and stops the desire to rape.  Castration seems a little extreme, but then again ...

    Convicted rapist should be permanently castrated. Heard of chemical castration? I'll vote for chemical castration or cut their ***** off! *smirk*. But this drug will only treat temporarily against compulsive urges and impulsive fantasies to rape. There will always be ONE victim before a rapist is convicted and receives jail term or treatment.

    The proof of videos and testimonies and what other proofs there are against a rapist that involves murder (in many cases) should serve capital punishment.

    Some sex offenders volunteer to chemical castrations for treatment as opposed to lengthy jail terms. Sex offending is not merely about sexual abuse, but links to violence. Violence is another thing and cannot be affected by the drug. Though the sexual urges are controlled, there is hope for the perpetrator to get treated. If he does it again, a chemical made stronger or that imposes permanent castration could be a solution.

    The urge to rape won't stop in vasectomy. Vasectomy is cheap and simple and reversible. Like a neutered dog, he still has the urge to hump. That means a convicted rapist who had undergone a permanent vasectomy can still find a victim. We are trying not just to avoid unwanted pregnancies, but to prevent raping children, young girls and women as a whole. If rape can be prevented, then the rise on abortion will come to a halt.

    It does not make any sense about it. Rather, we should need a permanent vasectomy into their mind. So, that we can prevent our society from any further harmful effect from them.

    I do not think that rapists should be allowed out of jail, they just rape again. The violence is what they usually are looking for. The control is what they crave. Studies have proven it again and again. A vasectomy will do nothing constructive. Castration would not do much. The rapist will no longer have the rape but the violence will continue. They are as bad as murderers, but murderers are getting out of jail in way too short a time also. You get more time for selling drugs.

    Why stop there?  Let's give them a 'Bobbittectomy'. 

    Google crazed wife 'Lorena Bobbitt' to find out what this is!  Very scary.  Could be a great deterrent.

    No.  They should be forced to undergo the permanent vasectomy to hopefully reduce their sexual wouldn't help their sick minds though.

    Maybe a full castration would be more effective?

    I think some rapists could be wrongly accused, so to have a mandatory vasectomy seems wrong - also the vasectomy prevents pregnancy, but won't stop the guy from raping again.

    I think in the case of violent rape, there is a serious psychological issue that needs to be dealt with - and that man shouldn't be on the streets anyway.

    Good question!

    A better solution is to either keep them in jail for life OR execute them as was done until the 1960s. Either way, there is no further risk to the innocent public.

    Rather than undergoing a vasectomy, I'd propose making them eunuchs.

    Depending on the crime...
    In Date Rape Both of the willing participants are worthy of the same punishment..  Him for seducing her.. and Her for going along with it.  A date is a willing liaison.

    "Date rape":  While it is sometimes a fact of aggression (see Gross rape below)... an act of violence and not love...
    Most of the time it  Is too controversial in that it can be started as a "crime of passion" (Two teens get carried away making out) But then aftarwards when parents (or family) find out, it is regretted on the part of the female and then a finger gets pointed...  (sometimes at an innocent party to protect the real Boyfriend from violence) Usually the finger gets pointed to shirk personal responsibility...  in that case.. You potentially have a man getting framed and mutilated for life for something he did not really do.. Now that would not be right... "Date rape" is a wrong committed by two willing people and regretted afterwards. ... If not then it Should escalate to the next level...  and be considered
    "Gross Rape"

    In the case of more Gross examples of Rape...  Brutal Rapes and Gang rape... Rape homicide etc...

    I think that a "Vasectomy" is not the answer... Its far to easy on the person and does not set a precident that precludes others from following the Bad example... Swift and public punishment deters crime....  long prolonged trials and lengthy prison sentences do not deter anything...

    Castration Followed by Public Execution would be more appropriate.

      Date rape is also when the girl says no, and the guys does anyway. Or he will drug her into submission in order to do it. Date rape is wrong. It is not both of their faults. What you are describing is not date rape.

    Vasectomy can do nothing for their filthy minds. A very long term in the most brutal prison on earth or immediate execution after trial is more like it. Reintroduce the guillotine to clear such dirty dregs from our society, lest they try to pollute it further with their mere existence.

    I would hesitate to make this a law (in case of the occasional innocent accused), but in real life if it happened to a loved one I would go for the full-Bobbitt.

    Then again, like cats who have their claws removed may start biting, this physical limitation might just make these men channel their anger into a different form.  Maybe worse.  Still, would be tempting...  but the best thing would probably be for that deviant mental chip to be fixed.
