In response to a handful of form letters sent to the Woods for Congress campaign by local anti-abortion advocates, James Woods is mailing back gifts that are proven to quickly and effectively reduce unintended pregnancy and abortion: condoms.

"A national anti-abortion organization had a few local constituents write to me asking me to stand in between women and personal private medical decisions," says Woods, a progressive Democrat running against Representative Matt Salmon in Arizona's CD5. "I'm not willing to do that. But I am willing to support policies that both protect women's autonomy and reduce unintended pregnancies and abortions."
