{November 9, 2009}   Date-rape drug Ghb Kills

I came across this May 2009 article about a woman who was unknowlingly ingested the date-rape drug Ghb and died. Two guys put Ghb in her drink. She knew the guys; she worked with them. http://blog.al.com/spotnews/2009/05/boaz_woman_died_after_being_gi.html It is amazing that there seems to be an effort to defuse much of the publicity about date-rape by pointing to the similar effects of alcohol to date-rape drugs. Like a woman wouldn’t know whether she has been drugged. There are some who are saying that women who drink heavily contribute to date-rape. I don’t get that…because you are drunk and vulnerable you are somehow contributing to date-rape. That kind of logic escapes me! Any time sex occurs without consent, it is rape. The message seems to be: women who drink heavily are at risk for date-rape. And, What about date-rape drugs? Some woman do not survive the ingestion of date-rape drugs like Ghb (see link above). Ghb is the drug that killed my datughter. She ingested it unknowingly. She also was with some boys she knew. Ghb is deadly. Don’t be a statistic, stay informed: http://www.projectghb.org/2008/factsheets/ghbFacts-eng.php
