For all the women that are taking premarin, or any form of it (prempro, prempak-c and premphase), just wanted to be sure that you are informed about this drug. Your doctor will not tell you about where it really comes from, and its scary we just put our trust in them to take care of us. Just to start off, there are other alternatives to using premarin, it is not your only option (premerin is the worst option)
now, premarin (pregnant mareâs urine)
so how do they get it?
Harvested for their urine, the horses suffer terribly for the production of this drug. They are kept continually pregnant, in stalls too small for them to even turn around in order for their urine to be collected by filthy, bulky tubing attached to their bodies. When they can no longer reproduce quickly they are sent to the slaughterhouse.
Then what about all the babies they have? Well some females are saved to be put into the production as well, the rest are shipped off to the slaughter house to be killed! Where they are handled abusivlely, and tortured before being killed (no food, no water, cramped into trailors too small to move and small ones get crushed), so no them going to the slaughterhouse is not a quick easy death.
There is really so much to be said, please look at this website, there are some pictures on the front page that might be tough to look at so just warning you, but you really need to read what is said. It is sooo sad, this drug is not neccessary to be made, its all for money profits, and these horses are living the most terrible lives you can think of. It is not right! Please help stop it, by taking other options for medication, and inform everyone you know! Look at the website for more information on how to help. Anyone thats into horses and stuff, there are a lot of adoption teams that go in and save the foals from slaughter houses, and are always needing a loving caring home. God bless, and take care everyone : )
feel free to send me a private tell with any questions or anything.
Good for you for posting this about the horrors of Premarin
In addition to known risks for people taking premarin the treatment animals are subjected to in its creation is horrifying. Your description is quite accurate. Though this has been known for decades, it's still happening and many people don't know the information you just posted. I believe the best consumer is an informed consumer. I myself am in menopause and have a lot of symptoms that aren't so fabulous, but I won't ever take premarin on compassionate grounds alone. There are alternatives.
