This week on New Mexico in Focus, panelists discuss the debate surrounding whether women should be ordained as priests in the Catholic Church. Viewers will catch a sneak peak of Pink Smoke Over the Vatican, a new documentary exploring women's role in the church.
KNME's one hour public affairs show New Mexico in Focus airs Fridays at 7 p.m. and Sundays at 6:30 a.m. on Channel 5.1. The show can also be seen on KNME's Digital Channel 9.1 on Saturdays at 5 p.m.
Also this week, panelists offer their perspectives on two hot issues around the state: how to deal with the state's massive deficit problem and the controversy surrounding a new contraception policy at Albuquerque Public Schools.
