Disney Threaten To Pull Out Of Filming In Georgia If New Abortion Laws Take Effect

Disney Threaten To Pull Out Of Filming In Georgia

The boss of Walt Disney says he doubts the firm would keep filming in Georgia – if new abortion rules take effect there.

Blockbusters including Black Panther and Avengers: Endgame have been shot in the state because it offers generous tax breaks.

X-Men star Jessica Chastain is among actors who’ve said they won’t work in any area which bans terminations.


The US State of Louisiana has approved a new strict abortion law barring a termination once a heartbeat is detectable.

By a vote of 79-23, the lawmakers banned abortions as early as six weeks of pregnancy.

The legislation does not include an exception for pregnancy as a result of rape or incest.

Six other states – Georgia, Kentucky, Mississippi, Ohio, Missouri and Alabama – have recently passed laws banning abortion.
