Abortion Advocate's Ad Predicts Condom-Free Colorado If Opponent Wins

If Cory Gardner wins his Colorado Senate race, residents won't be able to get condoms "anywhere" - at least if you believe the latest radio ad from NARAL Pro-Choice America.

Republican Cory Gardner, who is on the record as wanting to make birth control available without a prescription, will ban birth control - according to NARAL's latest ad, which takes absurd political theatre to its logical conclusion.

In the future-fantasizing ad, Cory Gardner has won the election and banned birth control. As a consequence, the couple in the ad can't find condoms because everywhere, the man goes, condoms have sold out.

Here's the ad:

Woman: Did you try the corner market?
Man: Of course.
Woman: Grocery store?
Man: Sold out?
Woman: Drug store?
Man: Come on.
Woman: So everyone's sold out of condoms? Hmm. How did this happen?
Man: Cory Gardner banned birth control. And now, it's all on us guys. And you can't find a condom anywhere. And the pill was just the start. Pell grants my little brother was counting on for college? Cory cut them. Climate change that everyone knows is weirding our weather, Cory flat-out denies it. Sweet Pea, Cory denies science.
Woman: Come on!
Man: This guy has no idea what's going on in the real world.

Early reviews of the ad are in - and they're not good. As TheFederalist puts it:

"In all seriousness, congratulations to NARAL for airing what might be the dumbest ad of 2014. According to the Real Clear Politics poll average in Colorado, Gardner leads Democratic Sen. Mark Udall by 3 percentage points."
