3 production companies boycott Georgia after abortion ban

NEW YORK NY- JUNE 04 Busy Phillips speaks onstage during the 2018 CFDA Fashion Awards at Brooklyn Museum

The boycott is a big deal because, according to the state's website, more top-grossing films are produced in Georgia than anywhere else in the world.

At least three prominent production companies said they will no longer shoot their films in the state.

Later Thursday Killer Films chief executive officer of Killer Films, behind Carol and Vox Lux, join in. "Well, you know me".

Now, several production companies have announced they will refuse to film in Georgia, The Hollywood Reporter reports.

Brian Kemp signed legislation yesterday that would ban abortions around six weeks of pregnancy. A women who undergoes an abortion from a health care provider "would be a party to murder" and therefore face life in prison, while a women who self-terminates a pregnancy through drugs or other methods will be committing murder and could receive a life sentence penalty or capital punishment, Slate reported.

Early indications are that it is Mercedes and Bottas who once again have the edge in Spain. Of course, there are all the usual caveats that come with any Friday practice session.


The law would officially go into effect January 1, 2020, but Planned Parenthood and the American Civil Liberties Union is already planning to challenge the law in court.

The law appears to violate Roe v. Wade, the 1973 Supreme Court decision that protects a woman's right to an abortion up until when the fetus is viable, which typically happens between 24 and 25 weeks.

Several other states, including North and SC, have undertaken similar legislation on heartbeat bills.

The law would effectively outlaw most abortions.

They promised to donate 100% of their episodic fees to the ACLU of Georiga and Fair Fight Georgia, an election reform organization. "I will do everything in my power to get as many productions as possible - including "Insatiable" - to move out of this state which continues to put forth oppressive, hurtful policy that contradicts everything the entertainment industry stands for", she told TheWrap.

Last month, Church Militant reported that Georgia's adoption of the Living Infants Fairness and Equality (LIFE) Act prompted a group of Hollywood actors and both East and West branches of the Writers Guild of America, a union of film and television writers, to threaten a boycott of the state.

And the backlash Georgia's abortion law generated is affecting debates around similar laws. "We can not continue to allow these white men, middle-aged men, to dictate what we're able to do with our bodies".

Governor Kemp shows no signs of capitulating to the industry's attempts to transport its liberal agenda to Georgia.

"You should not have to worry about your ability to controlling your bodily autonomy because the governor has pushed such an abominable and evil bill that is so restrictive", she added.

Georgia has an uncapped tax incentive for film productions, hence its popularity as a filming location.

Once the investigation is completed, the metropolitan sends the results to the Vatican for a decision on how to proceed. Pope Francis admitted publicly in February that priests have used nuns as "sexual slaves" and may still be doing so.


"We can not change our values of who we are for money", he told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
