Pakistan Passes Law to Chemically Castrate Rapists


Pakistan’s parliament passed a bill on Wednesday introducing chemical castration as a possible punishment for serial rapists in the country, Dawn reported.

The new law went into immediate effect on November 17 and included a provision for “faster trials of suspected sexual offenders,” according to Reuters.

According to the law, “chemical castration is a process duly notified by rules framed by the prime minister, whereby a person is rendered incapable of performing sexual intercourse for any period of his life, as may be determined by the court through administration of drugs which shall be conducted through a notified medical board.”

Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan has publicly supported the chemical castration bill since last year in response to increased incidents of rape across Pakistan.
