Besides these hormones being wrong for you look what has to be done in order for them to be manufactured.This is yet another reason why I rely on only natural suppliments to help my body.

I think this is the most disguisting act of cruelty that can be done to an animal, or at least one of them. I agree with Nurith K, there are plenty of herbal remedies for woman today and they are clearly better for a woman's body. I am 51 and am glad I have never used hormone drug medication. I have always used herbal and feel much better for it and the mere fact that an animal is NOT being tortured for me. I hope this horrible act can be stopped!

This is so horribly distiurbing. I've always known that Premarin was made from the urine of pregnant mares so refused to take it. Never really considered the sordid truth behind the manufacture of this drug.

I agree there are many other options out there. This in my opinion is just a legal abuse center. This should not be allowed to happen.

These companies who do this just makes me so sick! I wish they could all be shut down. 11 million women use these horrible drugs that are also so harmful to there bodies. So sad.
