Colorado Senate ad: Republican Cory Gardner wants to take away your condoms

Colorado Senate ad: Republican Cory Gardner wants to take away your condoms

That's the thrust of a new attack ad from NARAL Pro-Choice America that will air in the closing days of 2014 election cycle.

"If Cory Gardner gets his way, you better stock up on condoms," a narrator warns as a bummed out couple, sans prophylactics, abandon their would-be tryst.

In the House, Gardner supported a personhood measure that would have defined life as beginning at conception and thus effectively banned some methods of contraception. Gardner, who is vying to unseat Sen. Mark Udall (D), has since walked back his support for the measure, saying it was "not the right position."

In addition to the video spot, NARAL is also running a radio ad playing on the same theme in which a man tries to find condoms at every store in town, to no avail.
