Miss ND thanks lawmakers for opposing abortion, says state isn't 'against women'

Special to The Forum

From time to time during their session lawmakers have people stop by to address the House or Senate floor.

Today Macy Christianson, who is Miss North Dakota for 2016, spoke to the state Senate and got a little political with her remarks.

“One aspect that I love in particular about being a title holder is that I represent such an amazing organization, yet I’m still an individual that can stand for things that I’m passionate about and that matters to me,” she told the Senators. “I have immense respect for our state for having taken a stand for what I believe is right in regard to abortion. I have had people tell me that North Dakota is against women and our rights. I have to disagree, because not only do we support our women but we support our women who are unborn and can’t speak for themselves.”
