Stacey Abrams met with film industry executives in Los Angeles to argue against Georgia boycott [View all]

Source: The Hill

Former Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams (D) said she met with film industry executives to try to dissuade them from boycotting her state in response to its new law that bans abortion about six weeks into pregnancy.

She denounced the legislation, but said she also urged companies to "#StayAndFight."

"We had productive conversations with execs, show runners, actors & more," she tweeted. "If companies #StayAndFight, we can save jobs, build power and most importantly, protect women. While the call to leave resonates for some, we must leverage the time before a final determination to lead."

"Business relies on predictability - too many companies will face growing uncertainty in our healthcare environment," she continued. "This forced pregnancy bill targets women but every Georgian is at risk if we lose doctors, jobs and billions. #StayAndFight"
