Progesterex: The New Date Rape Drug?
Date Added: Nov. 20, 2001
Nightmare crime scenarios prey on our basest emotions. Unsubstantiated stories of innocent people victimized in ways you may not have considered, but which seem perfectly feasible, are often used to illustrate a very generalized warning. Of course, before you get too upset, it may help to make sure that what you're supposed to be afraid of actually exists.

IMPORTANT!! A BIT TOO CLOSE TO HOME!
A woman at Gas nightclub on Saturday night was taken by 5 men, who according to hospital and police reports, gang raped her before dumping her naked at NeutralBay.
Unable to remember the events of the evening, tests later confirmed the repeat rapes along with traces of rohypnol in her blood. Boyfriends, take heed.
Good guys out there, please forward this message to your lady friends. Progesterex, that is a essentially a small sterilisiation pill.
The drug is now being used by rapists at parties to rape AND sterilize their victims.
Progesterex is available to vets to sterilize large animals.
Rumour has it that the Progesterex is being used together with Rohypnol, the date rape drug. As with Rohypnol, all they have to do is drop it into the girl's drink. The girl can't remember a thing the next morning, of all that had taken place the night before.
Progesterex, which dissolves in drinks just as easily, is such that the victim doesn't conceive from the rape and the rapist needn't worry about having a paternity test identifying him months later.
The drug's effects AREN'T TEMPORARY.
Progesterex was designed to sterilize horses. Any female that takes it WILL NEVER BE ABLE TO CONCEIVE.
The crooks can get this drug from anyone who is in the vet school of any university.
It's that easy, and Progesterex is about to break out big on campuses everywhere. Believe it or not, there is even a site on the internet telling people how to use it.
Please forward this to everyone you know, especially girls.
Date rape happens more frequently than anyone cares to admit. And yes, some shady characters use drugs like Rohypnol, or "roofies," to alter their victims' consciousness, make them more receptive and interfere with their recollection of events.
But nobody uses Progesterex to sterilize their victims because Progesterex doesn't exist!
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration, which regulates all drugs for humans and animals, has never heard of Progesterex. Neither had the veterinary schools they contacted.
We can't be sure whether this story was fabricated as a hoax or as an earnest warning based on false information. Regardless of its false premise, this letter has all the ingredients of an urban legend - no names, vague references to location, no dates.
Nonetheless, personal safety and crime prevention specialist Susan Bartelstone, the self-proclaimed "Ann Landers of Self Defense," cautions that it is always wise to be careful when you're out and not leave your drink unattended. She offers these tips to protect yourself:
