State senators are considering a proposal that would allow South Carolina to execute those convicted two or more times of sexually assaulting children.

The amendment came as the Senate took up sexual offender legislation crafted in response to a Florida girl kidnapped and killed last year and a week after a Hartsville man was charged with abducting two girls to an underground shelter and assaulting them.

Currently, South Carolina prosecutors can only seek the death penalty for murder with aggravating circumstances. If the proposed amendment by Sen. Kevin Bryant of Anderson passes, South Carolina would join Louisiana as the only other state to allow the death penalty for an offense other than murder, senators said.

'They may never recover from this,' Bryant said Wednesday of children who are assaulted. 'I say that's just as bad as taking a life.'

Do you agree with the new proposed law stating that repeat child sex offenders should face the death penalty?

You are putting them through punishment eitherway. "let them rot". Is that not the same as killing them? I would think it is.

I think that might be going a bit too far... can't they just make it harder to get out on parole?

Well, they'd be dying from natural causes, not because they're in jail.

Lol, just so odd to think of it that way. Doesn't really seem any different to me. Except I think my idea of killing them is a lot more humane that your's, whether or not you actually think you are killing them.

Maybe repeat child sex offenders should be put in with the general prison population. That would almost be the same thing as the death penalty.
