Default Ever heard of PMU horses?

Read down into this horse's adoption to see the story of what happens to PMU foals and mares. I find this unforgiveable. I mean, I am for some controversial medical things, if they save lives or cure/reverse devestating diseases. But this? Unbelievable.

Seems they should be able to make Premarin ,Prempro and Premphase type of hormone replacements some other way by now.
Synthetically or something.


[What is a PMU/Premarin foal or mare?
PMU stands for Pregnant Mare's Urine.
Premarin is a hormone replacement therapy drug (HRTD) given to women during menopause. It is made by extracting estrogen from the urine of pregnant mares. Other HRTDs are made from PMU as well, such as Prempro and Premphase.]

I didn't read it yet but I think I know. I stopped Premarin because of what I found out about it. Me and menopause just learn to live with one another.

Me, too. I can't read it either. But I have a pretty good idea of what it's about.

I can't even watch the animal cruelty commercials where Sarah McLaughlin is singing........I cry just listening to the song. I wish I could help them all but I just don't have the $$ or the room.

One way to help all animals is to go to the Animal Rescue Site @ http://www.theanimalrescuesite.com/c...faces?siteId=3. It's an easy way to donate just by clicking an icon and there's also an online store. I visit everyday!!

Thumbs down

There is synthetic estrogen. It doesn't need to come from a horse. I've taken the synthetic form for almost nine years now and it works just fine.

I can't read it either.
