Alabama lawmakers passed a bill Tuesday that would require convicted child molesters to be chemically castrated prior to being released from prison.

“If Gov. Kay Ivey signs the bill, it would require offenders aged 21 and older to be chemically castrated before leaving prison,” according to WHNT. “The bill, known as HB 379, was introduced by Republican State Rep. Steve Hurst of Calhoun County, which is in the northeast part of the state.”

“They have marked this child for life and the punishment should fit the crime.” Hurst reportedly said.

But he also hopes the bill will deter would-be child sex offenders.

“If we do something of this nature it would deter something like this happening again in Alabama and maybe reduce the numbers,” he said.

One Alabama attorney said the law – if signed – will likely be challenged in court.

“There [sic] going to challenge it under the 8th Amendment Constitution,” Raymond Johnson reportedly said. “There [sic] going to claim that it is cruel and unusual punishment  for someone who has served there time and for the rest of there life have to be castrated.”

Alabama recently signed into law a controversial pro-life bill.

Big League Politics reported:

Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey signed into law the country’s strictest pro-life legislation this afternoon, making history and marking a potential legal battle that could lead to the reexamination of Roe vs. Wade.

The newly minted bill will punish abortionists with up to 99 years in prison, and only makes exemptions for special cases where carrying the unborn baby to term would pose a risk to the life of the infant or the mother.

According to CBS17, the ban does not carry any type of fine or prison time for women receiving abortions, and instead levies punishment solely on medical professionals who provide abortions.

The American Civil Liberties Union and other groups have pledged to fight against the legislation, and Pat Robertson of “The 700 Club” slammed the law as “extreme” and said he does not expect it to succeed when taken to the Supreme Court.
