Hollywood has shown its true colors in the past few days, and is threatening to pull all film and television production out of the state of Georgia due to the anti-abortion heartbeat bill that was passed.

Both companies operate theme parks and resorts, and their respective operations in Orlando, Florida are among the most visited every summer. It could be very bad for, not only the movie studio, but the theme parks as well with new themed areas based on the Star Wars franchise opening at Disneyland and Disney World this summer.
This past May, NPR released a guideline for the terminology that should be used in regards to the abortion debate.

This morning, following NPR’s lead, The Guardian announced that it will no longer call the Georgia abortion bill “the heartbeat bill” because it is “not medically accurate.” It will now be called “ the six week abortion ban.”

Hollywood’s hot new trend is to boycott the entire state of Georgia because Governor Brian Kemp signed a bill making it harder to kill unborn babies.
