ATTN: WOMEN - Premarin: A Bitter Pill
Probably the
most prescribed drug for women in the United States is made from pregnant's horse mare's urine.
Pregnant mares are kept tied up inside the PMU barn stalls for months on end
while their urine is collected to product this pill !!!!

The stalls are kept narrow to prevent pregnant mares from turning or fully lying down
with their legs stretched out for fear the collection cups will become detached as the urine is "harvested."
Many of these mares get little or no exercise for the consecutive months they are forced to stand in the barns.
The story is just as tragic for the foals who most be disposed of in some way.
Read about this drug.
