GA pro-lifers: Heartbeats trump Hollywood threats

Thanks to a generous tax credit, Georgia has emerged as hotbed of film and TV production, and some prominent Hollywood names have attempted to use that as leverage after Gov. Brian Kemp signed a heartbeat bill into law.

The measure bans an abortion if the preborn baby's heartbeat can be detected. 

Zemmie Fleck of Georgia Right to Life says pro-lifers refuse to stand by while Hollywood lectures The Peach State over the sanctity of human life.

GRL has partnered with Personhood Alliance to target one Hollywood influencer, Netflix, after the corporation announced it is working with the ACLU to sue the state.

“Netflix was the first one who had basically come to our attention on this level,” Fleck explains. "So that's why we launched our campaign against Netflix particularly.”

A petition drive against Netlix automatically sends an email to the powerful corporation when someone signs their name, and the hope is for at least 50,000 emails to reach Netflix in the coming weeks.
