ANALYSIS/OPINION:

With less than a week until election day, NARAL Pro-Choice America is going desperate in an effort to stop Republican Rep. Cory Gardner from winning a Senate seat in Colorado, saying a vote for Mr. Gardner is a vote to decimate condom supplies.

In a new radio spot, the abortion-rights group wrongly accuses Mr. Gardner of wanting to ban birth control, a policy that would evidently cause widespread condom shortages, The Federalist reported.

The fantastical spot features an upset couple on a futile quest to track down condoms in a strange, post-Gardner wasteland. The male says, “Cory Gardner banned birth control. And now, it’s all on us guys. And you can’t find a condom anywhere.”

In reality, Mr. Gardner has called for oral contraceptives to be sold over the counter without prescription. In the past, he supported a personhood amendment to grant protections to fertilized eggs, but reversed position because it would restrict some forms of birth control.



His opponent, Democratic Sen. Mark Udall has been criticized by The Denver Post for his “obnoxious, one-issue campaign” to paint him as anti-woman. With Mr. Gardner leading, it appears NARAL has picked up Mr. Udall’s flailing battle cry.
