Posted May 14 2009 4:35pm
Okay, menopausal goddesses, here s a call to action from our friends at the nonprofit Women in Balance - www.womeninbalance.org. Their email is as follows:
The estriol battle continues and we need your support. Here's how you can help: If you know who your Representatives and Senators are, Dial 1-202-225-3121 and the receptionist will direct you to your Congressional Offical's office.
If you are unsure of your Representatives or Senators, go to http://www.congress.org/congressorg/home to locate your Congressional Official by zipcode.
Once on the call, you may share the following points:
1. Encourage your official to support Resolution Senate Concurrent Resolution 88 or House of Representatives Concurrent Resolution 342 2. This resolution calls upon the FDA to stop their new policy of restricting women's access to prescriptions containing Estriol. This drug has been available in the United States for half a century and is chemically the same as natural estriol made in a woman's body 3. Protect women's access and preserve the choices women have for hormone therapy. Allow the continued availability of compounded bio-identical hormones like estriol that women need for quality of life. 4. Request that congress support this resolution and restore the rights of physicians and health choices of millions of American women. 5. Don't forget to add your personal experience.
