Christie, Richards In N.H. To Campaign
The president of the national Planned Parenthood Action Fund is calling Democratic gubernatorial candidate Maggie Hassan a champion for women's right to make their own health decisions.
Cecile Richards told reporters at a news conference Wednesday the stakes for women are high in this election.
Hassan was asked about a comment made by Indiana Senate candidate Richard Mourdock, who said that when a woman becomes pregnant during a rape, "that's something God intended."
Hassan said a group of candidates are running for office who believe women can't be trusted to make their own health care decisions. Hassan argues Republican rival Ovide Lamontagne is too extreme because he supports limiting abortion and employer paid coverage of contraceptives.
Later Wednesday, Lamontagne holds a rally in Exeter with New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie.
