Earlier this month, Georgia’s governor Brian Kemp reportedly signed a ban on six-week abortions, which is around the time a heartbeat can be detected, but before most women actually find out they’re pregnant.
Bob Iger, the Chairman and CEO of the Walt Disney Company said that there are “doubts” that Disney will continue to film in Georgia if the ban is enacted. Movies such as Black Panther and Avengers: Endgame were filmed in Georgia under Marvel Studios, a division of the Walk Disney Company.
“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,” Iger told Reuters. “Right now we are watching it very carefully.”
“We have many women working on productions in Georgia, whose rights, along with millions of others, will be severely restricted by this law,” Netflix Chief Content Officer Ted Sarandos said on Tuesday.
