Nightclub rape danger in New Zealand

Nightclub rape danger in New Zealand
by Greg Tingle  (2nd March 2003)

A woman at a prominent Auckland nightclub on Saturday night, was taken and by five men, who according to hospital and police reports, gang raped her before dumping her naked body

Tests conducted on the body confirmed the repeat rapes along with traces of Rohypnol in her blood.

Progesterex is essentially a small sterilization pill. The drug is now being used by rapists at parties to rape and sterilize their victims.

The drug is available to vets to sterilize large animals. The word on the street is that Progesterex is being used together with Rohypnol, " the date rape drug.

As with Rohypnol, all the attackers need do is drop it into the girl's drink. The girl can't remember anything the next morning, and has no recollection of anything that took place the night before. Progesterex, which dissolves in drinks just as easily as Rohypnol, 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 affects are not temporary. They are permanent.

Progesterex was designed to sterilize horses. Any female that takes it will never be able to conceive.

The weasels can get this drug from anyone who has a connection to a vet or from any university. It's that easy, and Progesterex Is about to break out in a big way on campuses everywhere. Believe it or not there is even a site on the internet showing people how to use it.

While it is easy to assume that drugging only occurs in bars and night clubs, in New Zealand, drugging has occurred in a wide variety of places including workplaces, nightclubs/bars, gang headquarters, parties, and in the victim's or perpetrator's home.

New Zealand Drug Rape Trust founder and Chairwoman Louise Carroll said she had had a family member drugged and assaulted while overseas.

She said that drug rape was a new era of crime and New Zealanders had a social responsibility to fight it.

A word of warning to women, be careful when you're out and about, drink with friends only, and don't leave your drink unattended.

Correction / Update: (received by a real person / victim on 2nd July 2003)

Greg Tingle,

I have been the receiver of the same e-mail about "progesterex" that you have posted on your site
however mine stated that it was in a Sydney night club. After reading this I though something was not
quite right (if this pill was available why would women go through the trouble of getting their tubes
tied!?) and decided to search for information on this and stumbled onto your site.

The article on the alleged"date rape" sterilization drug progesterex that you have placed on your site is
completely false and was, one would assume, produced as a scare tactic. If you had bothered to research this before placing this on your page you would also know this. I suggest that if you wanted to warn people about rape you should have checked you sources and information before causing unneeded alarm and just written (that's right, write them yourself) the facts.

Don't get me wrong it's great you care enough to put this on your site, it just is not correct.

Thanks for taking the time and effort to contact me.

You make some good points.

I do my research as best I can. You would understand, I go on information I am told, and do my best to do checks on all the facts.

Just as you are telling me what you know, based on your experience.

On occasion, something gets missed.

May I have permission to publish your e-mail letter under the article, as a correction?

This would in fact act as an authority and add tremendous value and accuracy to the article.

This could contain or omit your e-mail address. (What ever you instruct me to do).

I look forward to your reply and instruction.

Best Regards

Greg Tingle
