Like other states this week, Georgia passed a near-total abortion ban.
But, unlike those other states, Georgia has a Hollywood presence

In Georgia, female film workers are telling celebrities to fund local organizations rather than boycott the state:
“Your condemnation is understandable, but what we really need most is allies.”
The crux, according to Stacey Abrams: “Georgia happens to be uniquely positioned at the nexus between the attack on abortion rights and the economic impact of the entertainment industry.”
The LA Times is your best source for understanding the Georgia abortion controversy.
