When Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp signed into law a bill banning abortions after detection of a fetal heartbeat, some major production companies claimed they were considering boycotting the state. Months later, however, it’s business as usual for the Georgia film industry.
Major companies like Netflix and AMC, which film popular television shows in Georgia, were among companies threatening a boycott during the days and weeks of outrage over pro-life laws. Now that the furor has died down, those shows are staying put.
When the Georgia pro-life heartbeat bill was going through the state legislature, AMC expressed serious concerns.
“If this highly restrictive legislation goes into effect, we will reevaluate our activity in Georgia,” an AMC statement read. “Similar bills — some even more restrictive — have passed in multiple states and have been challenged. This is likely to be a long and complicated fight and we are watching it all very closely.” See more at The Blaze.
