Macy Christianson is using her title of Miss North Dakota to defend the lives of babies in the womb.
Christianson represented her state in the Miss America pageant in 2016; and on Wednesday, she spoke to the North Dakota Senate, North Dakota Inform reports.
While she spoke primarily about her advocacy work to preventing drunk driving, Christianson also talked about her pro-life stance, and thanked state lawmakers for working to protect unborn babies from abortion.
“I have immense respect for our state for having taken a stand for what I believe is right in regard to abortion,” Christianson told the senators. “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.”
“Just that I can stand here and have a voice makes me grateful,” she added.

Local news columnist Rob Port praised Christianson for having the courage to speak out for unborn babies, knowing that she could face criticism for it.
“… kudos to her for being willing to break out of the ideological mold liberals cast for women,” Port wrote. “I’m sure she’ll get some flak for thinking things the left feels women ought not think, but it’s high time we all stopped caring so much about the identity cages politicos try to herd us into.”
More young women like Christianson are speaking out against the pro-abortion narrative that women should have a “right” to an abortion. As the pageant winner said, abortions have destroyed the lives of millions of girls in the womb, denying them their right to life.
Unborn babies, no matter what their sex, deserve a right to life; but unborn girls particularly are targeted for abortions. Experts estimate as many as 200 million girls are missing world-wide today because of sex-selection abortions.
It’s encouraging to see women like Christianson use their time in the spotlight to raise awareness about the tragedy of abortion and defend the right to life for babies in the womb.
