Frankly, If I had not been better aware of the situation, chances are that I'd also go forwarding these mails around the globe. So if you just forwarded a hundred copies of the mail, feel free to forward another hundred copies of the second bit as a public service update. :o)
SHOCKING TRUE STORY: (INDIA)
A woman at a Gas nightclub (Mumbai) on Saturday night was taken by 5 men, who according to hospital and police reports, gang raped her before dumping her at Busstand Mumbai. Unable to remember the events of the evening,tests later confirmed the repeat rapes along with traces of rohypnol in her blood.
Rohypnol, date rape drug is an essentially a small sterilization pill. The drug is now being used by rapists at parties to rape AND sterilize their victims. All they have to do is drop it into the girl's drink. The girl can't remember a thing the n! ext morning, of all that had taken place the night before. Rohypnol, 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 affects ARE NOT TEMPORARY - they are PER! MANENT. Any female that takes it WILL NEVER BE ABLE TO CONCEIVE. The weasels can get this drug from anyone who is in the vet school or any university. It's that easy, and Rohypnol is about to break out big on campuses everywhere. Believe it or not, there are even sites on the Internet telling people how to use it.
Please forward this to everyone you know, especially girls.

Guys!! Don't fall for that so easily....
Rohypnol is not as dangerous as this little story makes it out to seem.
In actual fact, Rohypnol acts as a simple sedative and has been prescribed for many years by psychologists on patients who suffer from Insomnia.
Even though Rohypnol acts as a brilliant sleep device, it also has the side effect of causing amnesia (loss of memory). Usually, the memory loss is not totally blanked out. The memory can be recovered with the massage of time. Infact, the recall of lost memory can be accelerated by means of hypnotism and has been successful in almost every clinical trial.
Coming to its sterilization symptom. That was one of the reasons that psychologists were advising small dosages. Rohypnol, if used in excess, has been known to induce sterilization in some females. This is not a proven fact, but surveys seem to indicate that it is true. There is no conclusive evidence of this claim.
Yet, the reason why Rohypnol was really taken off the prescription lists and has become a restricted drug around the world is due to it's use as a date-rape drug. The memory loss and willing passiveness of the subject makes rape an easy feat.
The American Drug Association and FDA officially called for the drug to be restricted for the date-rape scene. Since then, feminists and other liberation groups have taken to slandering the drug based on its (assumed!) ability to cause sterilization.
Rohypnol, even when sold in India, is restricted and it is mandatory that all manufacturers of the drug include a bright purple/blue synthetic coloring to the tablets so that when dissolved in water or any drink, it is clearly visible. Besides, it releases a distinct odor (mandatory by law), even the veterinarian version of the drug features these visual and olfactory warnings.
Don't be afraid of people solely based on one side of the story. Be cautious all the time, but Rohypnol is not something to be feared, it's to be avoided and dealt with rationally.
Just because something does'nt look like Rohypnol, does'nt mean there's no Rohypnol in it. Similarly, Rohypnol is not the only date-rape drug out there. there are thousands of date-rape drugs in the market. Most of them are undeclared.
Trust me, if you get date-raped, and you did everything in your power to ensure that Rohypnol was'nt in the glass, trust me, there are at least 12 ways of administrating other drugs that are less visible, and between 2 to 20 times more potent.
Trust me, I know! :o)
All in all, the world's not half as bad a place as some people make it out to be. If people start jumping wildly about Rohypnol, they'll be mighty surprised when they find that their date-rapes are commited using more than 60 different drugs. If you've been dateraped, the chances of someone using Rohypnol is almost nil. It's less than 1/60! The reason is the Rohypnol scare has made rapists worried. they're using worse drugs because they're scared of the truble that Rohypnol can put them in. We're encouraging a terrible state of affairs through BAD INFORMATION DISSEMENATION! Please avoid spreading half the news and messing up the lives of the other 8 Billion people around you.
