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."
A Mississippi law passed in 2012 restricted teachers from teaching condom use in sex ed classes. In response, educator and education reform advocate Sanford Johnsondeveloped a simple (and pretty funny) workaround.
