  • Why is it so important to educate not only the medical profession but also consumers about DES and its devastating side effects?
  • How did a drug – once given in full faith to prevent miscarriage – end up being given as a Day After Pill?
  • How comes the Department of Agriculture banned the use of DES in animals before it was banned in pregnant women?
  • Why did DES continue to be prescribed after a 1953 study suggested that DES was ineffective to prevent miscarriage?
  • Why was DES marketed for use in pregnancy even though it had never been tested on pregnant animals?
