Sexual violence experienced by children will be affected to their growth and development. The impact experienced by children as victims can be in the form of physical, mental and social disabilities. In response to the increasing prevalence of sexual violence, it is necessary to intensify additional sanctions and punishments against perpetrators which has been regulated in Law No. 17 of 2016 concerning the Second Amendment to Law No. 23 of 2002 concerning Child Protection. This study aims to determine the perspective of Human Rights and Medical regarding chemical castration as an additional punishment for perpetrators of sexual violence against children. This study uses normative juridical research subsequently studied through a conceptual and comparative approach and uses secondary data sources and primary data as supporting materials. The result of this study indicate that castration is a form of cruel, dignified, inhuman treatment and violation of human rights. However, doctors are required to relieve and maintain a person's life, not the other way around, so tasks that are contrary to healing are not the duty of the doctor's profession and the medical side insists that acting as an executor can violate the code of ethics.Pages: 99-103 | Views: 397 | Downloads: 121Download Full Article: Click Here
