Whitmore had previously agreed to be chemically castrated in 2005 after his release from jail, but the procedure was never done because probation officials couldn't find a doctor willing to have Whitmore as a patient, his former lawyer, Dan Brodsky said yesterday.
The newspaper said Whitmore may have also made a half-hearted attempt at self-castration while at the Regina Correctional Centre in May by trying to cut off his penis with a tin can.
Isn't it Canada's responsibility to ensure that safe castration is accessible on demand, and that there are doctors readily available to do the procedure?

Oh, and if someone tries to tell you that my belief that medical attention should be available to all Canadians is the same as saying that "women seeking legal abortions (a good number of them Liberals, presumably) were compared to mentally-deranged child molesters", please file that away as an excellent example of 'intellectual dishonesty'.
