The CEO of Disney has made it clear that they will cease filming in the state of Georgia if the new restrictive abortion law is enacted.
In an interview with Reuters, the CEO of the Walt Disney Co. Bob Iger said he doubts the company would continue production in Georgia if the controversial ban on abortion in the state comes into effect. The reason - his employees would be against it.
“I think many people who work for us will not want to work there, and we will have to heed their wishes in that regard. Right now we are watching it very carefully,” Iger told Reuters.
Earlier this month, Georgia's Republican Gov. Brian Kemp signed the "fetal-heartbeat bill." The bill bans abortion as early as six weeks into pregnancy. Many women do not even know that they are pregnant at six weeks.
Netflix and WarnerMedia have also echoed Disney's sentiments and may also cease production in Georgia if the bill is realized.
