Alabama Bill Proposes Rapists be Castrated

Article here. Excerpt:

'"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." Newsweek has contacted Givan for comment via email.

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."
As part of the bill, Givan is asking lawmakers to consider allowing abortion in cases of rape and incest, saying that a woman should be able to choose what she should do with her own body.'
