Another major studio is reconsidering its production in the state of Georgia, in the wake of a new near full-abortion ban law signed by the governor. The law would make abortions illegal in the state if doctors can detect a fetal heartbeat. Warner Media says it’s watching closely what’s happening there, as are powerhouse Hollywood producers Netflix and Disney.
