France launches chemical castration project for rapists

France has launched a pilot plan in which rapists and paedophiles will be offered chemical treatment to inhibit their s ex drive. The plan, reports The Independent, aims to reduce the population of French prisons where 8 200 men - or 22% of male inmates - are convicted s ex offenders. Of those, three out of four have been jailed for crimes of paedophilia. Justice Minister Dominique Perben said a two-year trial would be launched in January under which 48 repeat offenders will be offered counselling and treatment using two drugs that inhibit the development of male s ex hormones.
