Netflix is the first media production company to come out and publicly criticise the new abortion laws by Georgia’s Republican-dominated legislature. The new law prohibits most abortions once the heartbeat of a fetus can be felt, which could be as early as six weeks into the pregnancy. The company has said that it would reconsider its entire Georgian operation given that it films two of its popular series “Stranger Things” and “Ozark,” in the state. The announcement came after some actors and producers said that they would not film shows in the state if the law is implemented next year. The state risks losing out on billions in revenues generated by the film industry given that the state is a popular filming location. The film industry added $9.5 billion to Georgia’s economy during the 2018 financial year and directly spent $2.7 billion within the state’s borders. It is highly likely that other production companies will follow suit given the backlash from actors and producers following the bill’s signing by Governor Brian Kemp.
