"The View" panelists debate whether Alyssa Milano's call for a sex strike to protest Georgia's law banning abortions after the six-week mark is a good idea.
Georgia spoiled more than a few peaches with its controversial new abortion law, and now Hollywood is clapping back — but perhaps a bit softer and slower than what you would expect, especially after how vocal it was about boycotting the state following Democrat Stacey Abrams’ unsuccessful run for governor. According to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Georgia earned nearly $4.6 billion in total wages from qualified productions in 2018, along with 92,100 jobs, boosting the state’s economy significantly. HB 481, the so-called “heartbeat” law, bans abortions once a fetal heartbeat is detected, which can happen as early as six weeks of pregnancy.

In this case, Milano has advocated a NoMas approach, calling on women to refrain from sex while their rights to […]
Alyssa Milano has renewed her calls to boycott the state of Georgia, where she is currently filming the second season of Netflix’s “Insatiable,” after Republican Gov. Brian Kemp signed legislation this week banning abortions after a fetal heartbeat is detected as early as six weeks into a pregnancy.“I will do everything in my power to get as many productions as possible — including ‘Insatiable’ — to move out of this state which continues to put forth oppressive, hurtful policy that contradicts everything the entertainment industry stands for,”Milano’s statement comes after Killer Films CEO Christine Vachon and “The Wire” and “The Deuce” creator David Simon said Thursday that they would no longer consider Georgia as a production location so long as the law stays in place.“Should people wait to boycott? No. Should we keep funding states that put forth hurtful policy? No,” Milano said, noting that she is “contractually obligated” to continue shooting “Insatiable” in the state for another month. “If you are offered a project that shoots in Georgia or are a producer considering working in Georgia or any state with a heartbeat bill, you should not take that job and you should be vocal about why you’re not taking that job.”Also Read: Alyssa Milano: This Women's History Month, Let's Celebrate the Women Making History TodayA spokesperson for Netflix had no comment. Representatives for CBS Productions and Ryan Seacrest Productions, which are producers on “Insatiable,” have not yet responded to TheWrap’s request for comment.On Tuesday, Kemp signed a so-called “heartbeat bill” banning abortions in the state if a fetal heartbeat can be detected — though the legislation does include exceptions to save the life of the mother or for rape or incest if the mother files a police report. The law would go into effect on Jan. 1, 2020 unless it is blocked in the courts; legal challenges are expected.Milano has been outspoken about the issue since March, when the bill was approved in the Georgia General Assembly. She called for a boycott, delivering a letter signed by other prominent Hollywood actors like Amy Schumer, Patton Oswalt, Sarah Silverman, Uzo Aduba and Colin Hanks, to Kemp’s office.“I have had discussions with many actors, producers and directors. All of them have agreed they will not work in Georgia,” she added in her statement to TheWrap, though she did not identify any by name. “The entertainment industry supplements $10 billion a year and employs 90,000 Georgians. Those who signed on to my letter to Kemp believe we can not continue to feed the economy of a state which hurts women, communities of color, and the LGBTQ community.”She added: “Obviously, those who are already contractually obligated to be there, should fight to get their show out of Georgia while continuing their contractual obligation. I have to be there for another three weeks but you can be sure I will fight tooth and nail to move ‘Insatiable’ to a state that will protect our rights. And if it doesn’t move to another state, I will not be able to return to the show if we are blessed with a third season. This is my leverage. I will use it for the betterment of society and our great country.”Also Read: Alyssa Milano: Red MAGA Hats Are the New White Hoods - Let's Take a Stand (Commentary)Films like Fox’s “Fear Street” and Netflix’s “Holidate” are currently filming in the state.
