Perseverance is a great element of success.
If you knock long enough and loud enough at the gate, you are sure to wake up somebody.
― HENRY WADSWORTH LONGFELLOW
PremStoppers is a campaign to end the manufacture of drugs made with conjugated equine estrogens — namely, Premarin (tablet and cream), Prempro, Premphase — and Duavee (for years called Aprela) — approved by the FDA in October, 2013 during the federal government shutdown (coincidence?).
Doctors prescribe the Premarin family of drugs for the treatment of menopausal symptoms.
Premarin, Prempro and Duavee are produced with the estrogen rich urine extracted from the bladders of pregnant mares.
We will remember the million plus horses — the mares and throwaway foals — who Big Pharma have already killed to make these drugs.
We will remember the thousands of women who have suffered heartbreaking side effects such as endometrial cancer (cancer of the membrane of the uterus), breast cancer, heart attacks, blood clots and stroke, some of whom have also died.
"Nothing has been, or ever will be, appealing or beneficial about the PMU industry and the Premarin family of drugs; they are clearly harbingers of death from both sides of the equation."
― Jane Allin.
