Katie Christensen, State Director of North Dakota for Planned Parenthood, and Kristie Wolff, Executive Director of the North Dakota Women’s Network, join Human Voices from the 2021 North Dakota Human Rights Film Festival.
As part of the 2021 North Dakota Human Rights Film Festival, Katie and Kristie joined The Human Family for a discussion in Minot, North Dakota, about the right to access health care. The discussion took place after a screening of the feature documentary, THE 8TH, which traces Ireland’s campaign to remove the eigth amendment – a constitutional ban on abortion. It shows a country’s transformation from a conservative state in thrall to the Catholic church to a more liberal secular society.
Katie and Kristie share their thoughts on the film, on access to health care for women in North Dakota, and what a looming decision from the Supreme Court on Roe. Vs. Wade may mean for women in the state.
