Liberal celebrities are fuming after learning that they can’t force people to live like them.
Over 50 celebrities endorsed a letter to Georgia Governor Brian Kemp threatening to take their Hollywood business elsewhere if Kemp signed House Bill 481, aka the “heartbeat” abortion bill.
“We want to stay in Georgia. We want to continue to support the wonderful people, businesses and communities we have come to love in the Peach State,” read the celebrity endorsed letter. “But we will not do so silently, and we will do everything in our power to move our industry to a safer state for women if H.B. 481 becomes law. You have a choice, gentlemen. We pray you make the right one.”
However Kemp did not budge. He declared he would not sacrifice his values for money in a statement he gave the eve before he signed the bill.
“I can’t govern because I’m worried about what someone in Hollywood thinks about me. I ran the last two years on these issues, and I got elected with the largest number of votes in the history of the state of Georgia, and I’m doing what I told people I would do … Our business environment’s good. We cannot change our values of who we are for money. And we’re not going to do that. That’s what makes our state great,” Kemp said.
The bill will require physicians to search for a fetal heartbeat before performing an abortion, and outlaws performing an abortion if a heartbeat is detected unless medical complications with the birth develop.
Pro-abortion advocates are expected to fight the bill in court.
