Health Ministry: Chemical castration of pedophiles will not give effect

The chemical castration of the pedophiles will not give even a temporary effect. Representative of the Ministry of Health, the expert on evidence-based medicine Bermet Baryktabasova said at a round Table discussion.

According to her, when the idea of ​​chemical castration arose, physicians began to carefully study this issue. «It turned out that the other countries had begun to conduct research on thousands of prisoners 40 years ago. When hormones are prescribed, only the libido decreases. It has nothing to do with the rapist and his thoughts. This is a veiled problem,» said Bermet Baryktabasova.
