While states like NY pass horrific extreme abortion laws and states like Kansas strike down common-sense pro-life laws in order to allow dismemberment abortions, the state of Georgia has taken the righteous stand to protect babies from the moment a heartbeat is detected.

She added, "Thousands of actors and film crew members converge on Georgia every year, and we hope to continue to do so".

According to Film LA, 15 of the top 100 domestic films in 2017 were shot in Georgia, the most of any USA state. The law would go into effect on January 1 if it is not stopped by the courts. "Christine Vachon's Killer Films, which is responsible for the Oscar-nominated movie "Carol", and the Oscar-Winning film "Still Alice", will no longer shoot in Georgia", the filmmaker tweeted Thursday. "The citizens of Georgia in this industry have worked very hard to build this state into what it is in terms of production".

"Film and television production in Georgia supports more than 92,000 jobs and brings significant economic benefits to communities and families", senior VP communications Chris Ortman told THR.

Killer Films CEO Christine Vachon, whose production company produced Oscar victor Still Alice, is also avoiding the Peach State.

The bill prohibits abortions after "embryonic or fetal cardiac activity", which can typically be detected at six weeks pregnant, but it goes on to declare that "unborn children are a class of living, distinct person" who deserve "full legal recognition".

According to the Hollywood Reporter and CBS News, companies Blown Deadline Productions, Killer Films, and Duplass Brothers Productions will not use Georgia to film.

The law, which comes into effect in 2020, does not protect babies in cases of rape, incest or if the life of the mother is in danger.

Milano is an outspoken activist who often speaks about the Time's Up and #MeToo movements, among others, and previously called on productions to no longer film in Georgia following Kemp's controversial election amid accusations of voter suppression past year.

The state passed a tax credit a little more than a decade ago that allowed productions to collect a credit of up to 30 percent of its budget, enabling studios to either save money or increase their budgets.

But the man who signed the bill, Governor Brian Kemp, was unrepentant.

Dozens of pro-abortion Hollywood celebrities, however, have spoken out against the bill.

National opponents include Hillary Clinton said the proposed law amounted to a total ban on abortions in the state.

"I can't govern because I'm anxious about what someone in Hollywood thinks about me", Kemp said, according to a report by CBN News. "We have to be a state that is not only friendly to businesses, we have to be friendly to the women who work in businesses".
