When it comes to the anti-abortion "heartbeat" bills popping up in multiple states across the country, Hollywood could hold a unique sway on the matter.

The film industry contributes an estimated 92,000 jobs to the state workforce, in large part because of the generous 30 percent tax credit film productions receive from the state, according to CNN.

Head of Amazon Studios Jennifer Salke, producer, writer and actor Mindy Kaling from "Late Night", director Reed Morano from "The Power", creator Jill Soloway from "Transparent" and creator and executive producer Phoebe Waller-Bridge from "Fleabag" participate in the Amazon Studios panel "Visionary Voices", during the Television Critics Association Winter Press Tour in Pasadena, California February 13, 2019.

Georgia's new bill would ban abortions after a fetal heartbeat is detected, which can occur as early as six weeks into a pregnancy.

"We had no problem stopping the entire process instantly", Morano told Time.

The reunion of the innovative minds behind the movie "Bridesmaid" will be pulling out from shooting their new comedy satire, featuring Kristen Wiig and Annie Mumolo titled "Barb and Star Go to Vista Del Mar", due to the anti-abortion legislation bill passed in the Hollywood-centric State, Georgia. Amazon declined to comment on the decision. We stand with Stacey Abrams and the hardworking people of Georgia, and will donate 100% of our respective episodic fees for this season to two organizations leading the charge against this draconian law: "the ACLU of Georgia and Fair Fight Georgia".

The laws have touched off calls to boycott the state and its products among many prominent women and Democrats, including officials in Colorado and Maryland who said that they would work to divest state spending from Alabama.

"Make no mistake, this is an attack aimed squarely and purposely at women", they said in a statement. The industry generated $9.5 billion in "total economic impact" for the state in 2018, per AJC Radio & TV Talk.

The show The Power, a drama series for Amazon Studios that is based on a female-centric science fiction novel of the same name, chose to pull scouts who were scouring the state for potential filming locations and said that it would not be filming any of the show in the state. Though, none are known to have any projects slated to shoot in the state, according to The Wrap. The show The Walking Dead was filmed nearly entirely in the state.

"It feels wrong for a reason", said Morano via Instagram, extrapolating on comments she provided to Time magazine, which first reported the news.
