Expose cover up of Hormone Pregnancy Tests

Reason for signing

  • Norethisterone, the main hormonal component of Primodos, is a known endocrine disruptor that was a major cause of intersex in children born in the 1950s and 60s (when mothers were given it in mid to late pregnancy to prevent premature births). It makes complete sense to me that exposure early in prenatal development, during the critical period when limb development and major organ development is taking place, could produce the kinds of abnormalities these people are suffering from.
