    So sick of this mentality. Nothing says, "We support women" like putting some of those 90,000 or so employees in the GA film industry out of work, and damaging the economy of the state they live in so a statement can be made and some CEO/actors feel good about themselves.

    Baby seals get more support than pre-born babies, our priorities are so messed up.

    China is awful, worse even than Russia and that’s saying a lot. Canada is suffering as we speak from Chinese retaliation because the American government asked mine to detain the CFO of Huawei for extradition to the U.S. The Canadian government complied as it is bound by treaty to do. China is the rising superpower and soon enough will dominate the world. It’s already an economic superpower, and boycotts by film companies will do nothing. But China has nothing to do with this.

    Boycotts can have an impact in smaller venues like American states, and this one is meant to benefit American women who will be adversely affected by these new laws. The whole point of a boycott is that the threat of economic and job losses will make a government change course. That’s exactly what Trump is doing with China, Venezuela, Iran, North Korea and now Mexico. It’s what he did to Canada. It’s always ordinary people who actually suffer. However I doubt that AMC will actually do more than pay lip service to the idea of leaving Georgia.

    In Canada we have had no abortion laws whatsoever since ours was struck down by the Supreme Court of Canada decades ago, because no political party wants to touch this issue. Abortion is a medical procedure funded (usually) by provincial health care and is a matter between a woman and her doctor. The majority opinion here is pro-choice and even though some conservative types try to introduce restrictive laws now and again even the leader of the right-wing Conservative Party said recently he wouldn’t reopen the debate if elected later this year. It’s a losing issue.

    While I agree with most of your post to say china has nothing to do with this is bullshit 101
    if youíre going to decry the evils as you see them then fuckin be equitable forced labor/death camps are a pretty horrible thing that oh .....I donít know might need a light shone on. But again money talks and these Hollywood cupcakes morals walk. You arenít righteous if you just say youíre right.

    I want to see them do it and not just put out this threat but actually do it. I don't believe they have the guts to actually do it. I can sense Norman Reedus sweating this out at this moment. LOL. Can you imagine him on this? Must be funny to see.

    Well, they'd hire other women in the state they moved to. So it would even out. Plus some of the crew may choose to follow them. But really I'd be surprised if tptb went through with it.
