It's interesting that DNA was brought up. In recent years there has been a strange uprising of men who keep their daughter(s) prisoners and rape them...produce offpsring...and continue the string of abuse on said offspring. (I think I just threw up a little in my mouth) DNA proves conclusively that these men raped their daughters while minors (children born to daughter before age of majority) but they most likely will serve time and eventually be released.
These men, who've been proven 100% guilty through DNA evidence, should not have their right to reproduce taken away? So in effect we are saying that their right to reproduce supercedes the right of their future victims. And we all know the recidivism rate of pedophiles, don't we? So future victims are really a given when it comes to pedophiles.
I am speaking about extreme cases here, where evidence is not questionable, where offenses have been repeated and repeated. There has to be a line we draw in the sand when it comes to lifetime reoffenders. Murderers get released everyday, one's that have commited murder beyond a shadow of a doubt. So pedophiles definitely won't serve life for such a...minor offense.
