Planned Parenthood head to promote Clinton in New Hampshire
MANCHESTER, N.H. (AP) — The president of Planned Parenthood is heading to New Hampshire to campaign on behalf of Hillary Clinton and the state’s Democratic candidates.
Cecile Richards will attend events in Manchester, Concord and Portsmouth on Saturday and Sunday. Richards will kick off canvassing events and host a “women’s house party,” focusing on women’s health and family issues.
Access to reproductive health care and other women’s health services, including abortion, is a core issue for Democrats, and Planned Parenthood is a key ally for the party. Democrats statewide campaign on women’s health issues and have slammed Republicans who oppose Planned Parenthood.
Clinton’s campaign says Richards will also talk about the gender pay gap, paid family leave programs and Clinton’s economic policies.
