After Georgia Passed a Radical Anti-Abortion Bill, Hollywood Is Threatening to Boycott, and a Democratic Governor Has a Plan for Where They Can Shoot Instead
Despite promises of a boycott from denizens of the film industry, Georgia's H.B. 481—which would ban abortion in the state after only six weeks—is headed to the desk of Republican Governor Brian Kemp, who is expected to sign the legislation into law.
Georgia is the most popular filming location in the United States and the second most popular in the world, with the film industry pouring billions of dollars into the state's economy each year while reaping the benefits of its generous tax incentives in exchange. That revenue is expected to diminish once Kemp's pen hits paper.
