At least one Hollywood actor has come out to say he will not work in Georgia if a controversial bill that bans abortion remains in place.
Jason Bateman, who stars in the Netflix drama "Ozark," told The Hollywood Reporter he will not work anywhere that takes a stand against what he called "women's rights" to have an abortion.
"If the 'heartbeat bill' makes it through the court system, I will not work in Georgia, or any other state, that is so disgracefully at odds with women's rights," Bateman said.
Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp signed a bill into law last week that outlaws abortions as soon as a fetal heartbeat is detected, which can be as early as six weeks into a pregnancy.
Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey also signed an abortion ban bill into law this week, while other states are considering similar bills.
Georgia is a popular state for Hollywood to film because it offers tax incentives to film companies that conduct business there.
