Planned Parenthood's political group is holding a rally Monday to criticize the policies it says attack women's health and take aim at Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan.
Secretary of State Elaine Marshall, N.C. Senate candidate Sig Hutchinson and others are expected to attend the event, which is part of Planned Parenthood Action Fund's "Women are Watching" bus tour.
The group says it's mounting it largest campaign effort ever and visiting electoral battleground states to speed its message. Planned Parenthood is also pointing the finger at state Republicans, calling last year's legislative session in North Carolina "the worst on record for women's health."
The rally starts at noon at Wolfe Plaza on the campus of N.C. State University.
