BRING BACK SMALLPOX VACCINE

I've read that stores of small pox have leaked out of the former USSR and into the hands of terrorists. When you add that fact to the fact that no one has been immunized since 1972, and that of those of us who were immunized only an estimated 10-20% still have immunity- it doesn't take a genius to see that a PREVENTABLE public health crisis may be looming.

So join me in calling your representatives, your doctors, and Washington DC to make them give us back the choice to be immunized and to have our children immunized against this dreadful, disfiguring and PREVENTABLE disease. Let's do it now.
