"The initiative has been backed by the Government after research showed that the use of drugs can reduce the risk of further offending.
Similar schemes have already been set up in Sweden, Denmark, Canada and eight states in the United States and reported to have proved successful.
The programme involves jailed sex offenders volunteering to take medication to reduce their testosterone levels to those of pre-pubescent boys. The result is similar to the effects of castration. "
While I agree with this initiative, it strikes me as a little eery that the government is given the prerogative to mess around with people’s hormones. If this program was to become non-voluntary… could it possibly be morally supported? And I also hope this won’t lead to Testosterone being further demonised.
