CONCORD, N.H. — Democratic presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton told voters in New Hampshire Friday that there is "no more important issue than reproductive rights."
"We want to get the economy working for everybody, not just those at the top, [and] we want to get incomes rising," Clinton told attendees of the National Abortion Rights Action League's annual Pro-choice Roe v. Wade Dinner in New Hampshire.
"But those of us in this room also know that human rights, civil rights [and] women's rights matter and there is no more important issue than reproductive rights," she added.
Clinton continued, "Among the many issues that I put at the top of the list, that will be decided by whoever the next president will be, women's rights and reproductive rights are as high a priority as any of them."
Despite leading the Democratic presidential field nationally, the two most recent state-level polls show Clinton trailing her opponent, Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, by 27 percentage points in New Hampshire.
"I know what it's like to run from behind in New Hampshire and I know what it's like to come from behind and win in New Hampshire," she said Friday.
