WARNING… CONGRESS COULD RESTRICT YOUR ACCESS TO BIOIDENTICAL HORMONES!! TAKE ACTION TO STOP THEM!!
We are writing to tell you that the U.S. Congress is considering legislation known as the “Safe Drug Compounding Act” that would severely limit the ability of compounding pharmacists to fill prescriptions for bioidentical hormones. This legislation could make it impossible for millions of women and men to gain access to safe and natural hormone replacement therapies. The measure, which was drafted by Senator Edward Kennedy (D-Massachusetts), could be presented to a Senate Committee any day.
Tell Congress: Don't Take Away My Compounded Medications (Bioidentical Hormones)!
If you have the time, we would also encourage you to write personal letters to your Senators, as they will be the first ones to consider this bill.
You can find the mailing addresses of your Senators at the following web site:
While powerful interests are trying to stop your access to bioidentical hormones, this is a fight that we can win. In October 2005, pharmaceutical giant Wyeth asked the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to restrict access to bioidentical hormones. Tens of thousands of us wrote letters to the FDA asking it to reject the petition. As a result, the FDA set aside the petition.
We need to raise our voices once again to let Congress know they are putting our health at risk. Please…click over to the P2C2 web site to send emails to your elected representatives. Then, PLEASE forward this email to your friends and ask them to do likewise. Thank you for protecting our freedom to choose safe, natural hormone replacement therapies!
