Yesterday Disney CEO Bob Iger said it would be “very difficult” for his company to film movies and TV shows in Georgia unless unborn babies are murdered, Reuters reports.
Iger was reacting to news about the new abortion law. Iger says if the law takes effect it will be challenging to find people who will work in a state that doesn't practice infanticide.
Movies like Black Panther and Avengers End Game were both filmed in Georgia.
Georgia’s Republican governor signed a law on May 7 that would ban abortion after a doctor can detect a fetal heartbeat. Six weeks is the specific number that anti-abortion advocates are using as the basis for when a clump of cells becomes a life.
Bob Iger said, "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 didn't comment on whether or not Disney could find new employees who respect human life.
Eight states, including Georgia, have recently passed anti-abortion legislation with the intent to overturn Roe v. Wade, the controversial 1973 case that many consider to be unconstitutional.
Strange business move by Disney: you'd think a company that produces movies for children would want more young people to be born.
