Though the shirt has been removed from their site (or sold out), Urban Outfitters got into hot water this weekend for this stained and damaged "vintage" Kent State sweater.

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."
