As First No on 8 TV Ad Runs, Google & the New York Times Express Opposition to the CA Initiative

Last week the No on 8 campaign began running its first tv ad in California, which featured Freedom to Marry Steering Committee member Sam Thoron and his wife of 47 years, Julia sharing their message about why they are against discriminatory Prop. 8 in California: "My wife and I never treated our children different, we never loved them any differently and the law shouldn't treat them differently either." They warn that passing Prop. 8 would take away their gay daughter's ability to marry, along with all other gay and lesbian people in California.

As this ad circulated during premiere week on TV and during the Presidential debate, both Google and the New York Times encouraged voters in California to vote No on Prop. 8.
