GA State Rep. Responds to Hollywood Threatening Boycott Over 'Heartbeat Bill'
The sponsor of legislation that would prohibit abortion in Georgia after a heartbeat is detected reacted to Hollywood planning a boycott of the state.
State Rep. Ginny Ehrhart (R-Powder Springs) said that Georgia is proud to be a leading film location, and warned that it is not all of Hollywood that is threatening to boycott her state.
Gov. Brian Kemp (R) is expected to sign the legislation, and Ehrhart said the policy will continue to honor Georgia's traditional values.
Actors including Ben Stiller, Rosie O'Donnell, Alyssa Milano, Don Cheadle and Sean Penn have threatened not to work in the Peach State in the future if the law is signed.
Ehrhart said that unborn children are "distinct, individual human beings worthy of protection."
She said that it is important to protect their livelihood.
Ehrhart added that being "pro-life" and "pro-film" do not have to be mutually exclusive.
