Sam and Julia Thoron have been married for 46 years, and all three of their children can legally marry in California. But in November, voters in the golden state can take away the right to marry from the Thoron's gay daughter, by passing Proposition 8. The Thoron's story is starring on California TV as the first ad against the proposed constitutional amendment limiting marriage to a man and a woman.
Despite Brad Pitt's generous donation to help save same-sex marriage, those working to pass the constitutional amendment have outraised the pro-same-sex marriage set. Twenty percent of California voters still don't know how they will vote on the marriage measure. Do you think Sam and Julia's simple message will persuade voters to vote no on Proposition 8, and preserve same-sex couples' right to marry?
