ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) Democratic presidential candidate Senator Bernie Sanders attacked Republican abortion opponents on Friday during a campaign rally in New Hampshire. He said the Republicans who oppose abortion are hypocrites for saying that they support reducing government regulation in many areas, but increasing government intervention in women's pregnancies. He vowed to defend funding for Planned Parenthood if he's elected to the White House in November. The rally comes as voters in New Hampshire are preparing to go to the polls on Monday for their presidential primary. It also comes one day after Sanders engaged in a contention debate against Democratic rival Hillary Clinton. The intensity reflected a race that has seen Clinton's once prohibitive lead in polls shrivel against Sanders as the two vie for the Democratic nomination for the Nov. 8 election.
