Alabama Bill Proposes Rapists be Castrated

A proposed bill in Alabama could see convicted rapists castrated or given a vasectomy.

Democrat Representative Juandalynn Givan said ahead of the start of the 2024 Alabama legislative session that men found guilty of raping a woman in certain cases could be subject to an operation if they agree to it.

“My bill is simple,” Givan said. “If there is a young girl who has been raped or there’s incest involved, or a woman that has been raped, the bill would require a man, if found guilty, to have a vasectomy or some form of castration.”

House Bill 90 also would ensure fathers pay all costs associated with an abortion unless otherwise agreed with the pregnant woman. It would also see the payment be waived if the man agrees to a vasectomy.

“In recent years, the Legislature has passed laws restricting reproduction rights in the state and the penalties have been imposed only on women. It’s time for that to change,” Givan said in a statement seen by Birmingham Watch. “The last time I checked a biology textbook, it takes a woman and a man to make a baby. Men in Alabama need to be held to the same level of responsibility as women.”
