Sex offenders in Oklahoma could face chemical castration under a new bill proposed by Republican state representative Rick West. If it passes, the legislation could require some convicted sex offenders to undergo the process before being released from prison, according to the Associated Press. Eight states currently have legislature involving some sort of chemical castration, according to the Associated Press. California became the first in 1996, followed by Georgia, Florida, Louisiana, Montana, Oregon and Wisconsin. In Texas repeat offenders are given the option to undergo the process voluntarily. But what exactly is chemical castration and how does it work? Chemical castration is not surgical castration, which means the physical removal of the genitals.
