Could you have been violated without your knowledge?

This is an article detailing how women are routinely violated while they are under anesthesia for teaching purposes. Please read this and repost it EVERYWHERE, your facebook, myspace, twitter. This practice must be stopped.

Could this have happened to you or someone you love?

  • The only time I was fully under was for an endoscopy which only lasted 6 minutes, so I know that they didn't do anything to me. My husband met me in the recovery room....not to mention that I wasn't nude. But that is SICK and should be ILLEGAL!

  • Nope because I am fully awake or I request that someone be present in the room with me (relative) if I am under.

  • nope. The 2 times I was under everyone in the room was female,and I doubt my gastroenterologist wanted to violate me during a colonoscopy!

  • Butterfly, did you read the article?

    Jade, they usually don't allow anyone to be present for general anesthesia.
