    rather than death penalty...

    Can you help me to express the following sentences more naturally in English?

    Rather than giving the death penalth to child rapists, castrating can be an alternative punishment to prevent them from comming reoffense.

    "Castration can be an effective alternative to the death penalty in preventing child rapists from re-offending."

    ***neither a teacher nor a native-speaker***

    Instead of sentencing child-rapists to death penalty, sentencing them with castration should be considered as an alternative.

    Castration is good enough to prevent child rapists from re-offending, so why don't we use it as an effective alternative to the death penalty.
