A 2005 study printed in the Journal of the American Academy of Psychology and the Law, found that between zero and 10 percent of sexual offenders who are surgically castrated repeat their crime.

Castration of sex offenders does reduce the sexual urge. Only a small percentage of castrated rapists commit the crime again.
If a man is convicted of rape, he could be allowed to store sperm in case it is later found that he was falsely accused.
Castrating rapists would also prevent women from getting pregnant by a rape. This would mean that she would not have to face the choice of seeking an abortion or carrying to term a child which would carry the genes of the rapist

In defense of men falsely accused of rape, of course they deserve
the best lawyers they can afford! Some men who rape women and children are extremely wealthy and can get away with their crime.
Some extremely poor guy who gets accused of rape gets sent to prison.
If the wealthy guy is really guilty, he will probably repeat the same kind of crime. If the poor guy is guilty, he will probably repeat the same kind of crime when he gets out of prison.
The poor guy should have the right to choose between a long jail sentence and castration.
If he is innocent, he might choose prison. If he is quilty, he might choose castration.

Eight states allow chemical or surgical castration of sex offenders. They are: California, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Montana, Oregon, Texas, and Wisconsin.

If Todd Akin stays in the race, and advocates that rapists should be surically castrated, I will vote for him.
He thinks that the rapists should be punished, but I think that they should be castrated in order to reduce their testostorone and make them less likely to rape again. If a convicted rapist insists that he is inocent, he could have sperm stored before the operation so that he could father children if he is later proven inocent.

I think that I would vote for either political party which included in their Party Platform the requirement that rapists be surgically castrated. This is not to punish the man who rapes, it is to prevent him from doing it again to any other woman.
Women should not have to live in fear of being raped!
