"Women were 53% of the national vote in 2008..." (this NY Times article)

Do you realize what this means? Women have a slight advantage in majority when it comes to voting. The primaries are on JUNE 5th in California. In about 2 1/2 months we will be given the chance to voice our opinions as women and mothers.

Big Tobacco companies cannot win this fight. They are dirty and ruthless and will not stop. Without a YES vote on 29, Tobacco companies win. Sadly Tobacco companies have evaded a higher tax on cigarettes 14 times in a row. That is 14 wins for Tobacco companies and 0 for a healthier state. This is the first time that the $1 increase will be donated directly to cancer research though.

Beginning in late April/May Tobacco companies will be spending millions of dollars to defeat this proposition just the same. Millions of dollars in television ads! If this prop does not pass, not only will Tobacco companies win, but a greater chance for a CURE is defeated as well.

If you or someone you know has been affected by cancer, please forward onto a friend. Even just one will make a difference.
