Editorial Praises Breast Cancer Screening Legislation
A Santa Cruz Sentinel editorial commends Sen. Joe Simitian (D-Palo Alto) for reintroducing a bill (SB 1538) that would "require doctors to alert women who have a breast cancer risk because their dense breast tissue is undetected by mammograms." According to the editorial, "Ignorance is not bliss -- it can cost a woman her life." It concludes that Gov. Jerry Brown (D) should sign the bill into law.
