Alyssa Milano Wants Hollywood to Boycott Even More Pro-Life States

Actress-turned abortion activist Alyssa Milano is trying to get Hollywood celebrities to boycott even more pro-life states after her Georgia boycott received massive media attention.

On Thursday, she released a “guide” for filmmakers that outlines which states are trying to end abortions and which are trying to expand them, Newsweek reports. The idea is that left-wing Hollywood elites will use the list to boycott states that are trying to protect unborn babies from abortion.

“Since [the Georgia boycott], I’ve been fielding these inquiries about where productions could shoot,” Milano said.

“I asked if there was a version we could create with maps to the block of people that support a progressive policy, versus homes that are supporting a hurtful policy,” Milano said. “Can we use these to pinpoint in red states where it is safe for productions to spend their money?”

And that’s what she did.

The abortion guide includes a color-coded map of states that are ranked based on current abortion laws and proposed legislation. According to the guide, the “best” states for filmmakers include all the West Coast states, Illinois, New Mexico, Colorado, Nevada, Montana, Minnesota, Michigan, Alaska and Hawaii. The “worst” include Georgia, Alabama, Louisiana, Kentucky and Mississippi because they are trying to protect unborn babies.

“Following the passage of a number of draconian attacks on a pregnant person’s right to choose in 2019, including those in states in which the motion picture and television industries conduct significant business, it has become apparent that those in our industry need to be able to make informed choices,” the guide states.

The Hill reports Milano also has plans to create a Georgia-based app for abortion activists, identifying places in the state “that fund voter suppression or inequality.”

“The original idea was to prevent Gov. Kemp from signing this bill,” Milano said. “We in the entertainment industry pride ourselves on inclusivity, equality and choice. All of these really symbolic, important things that we understand become a beacon for the country to follow suit.”

But that equality and inclusivity does not include babies who are not yet born.

The Georgia Living Infants Fairness and Equality Act would ban abortions on an unborn baby after their heartbeat is detectable, around six weeks. It would allow exceptions for rape, incest and threats to the mother’s life. In addition, the bill would allow parents to claim unborn babies as dependents on their taxes and include the unborn baby in census data. It also would allow mothers to collect child support for pregnancy and delivery costs from the father prior to the baby’s birth.

The ACLU said it will sue to block the law in court, and even most pro-life advocates expect it will succeed, at least temporarily.

Dozens of celebrities and media groups joined Milano’s boycott this year, including Disney, Netflix and most major news networks.

In May, Disney CEO Robert Iger told Reuters that they probably will stop filming in Georgia if its abortion ban goes into effect. Dozens of celebrities, including “Star Wars” actor Mark Hamill, said they plan boycott the state as well.
