In response to Georgia’s Senate passing a bill Friday to protect unborn babies with a heartbeat, far-left actress Alyssa Milano demanded that her Hollywood peers use their power, money and privilege to force the state’s conservative legislators into compliance with their far-left agenda.
“There are over 20 productions shooting in GA & the state just voted to strip women of their bodily autonomy. Hollywood! We should stop feeding GA economy,” she tweeted.

The bill passed by Georgia’s Senate, HB481, would limit abortions to the first six weeks of pregnancy versus the first 20 weeks. Why? Because it’s around the 7th or so week that an unborn baby’s heartbeat can be detected by medical equipment, according to the American Pregnancy Association.
HB481 would allow women who’ve experienced rape or incest to still have an abortion past six weeks, provided they filed an official file report alleging that the rape or incest occurred.
The bill must now return to the state House for another review. If HB481 passes the House and is signed into law by Gov. Brian Kemp, it’ll represent a win for pro-life activists and their unborn constituents.
It’s a monumentally important pro-life win that far-left activists such as Milano simply can’t stand, ergo why she’s now pushing for a Hollywood boycott of Georgia.

This isn’t the first boycott of Georgia that the actress has championed. After Democrat Georgia gubernatorial nominee and conspiracy theorist Stacey Abrams lost to Kemp in the midterms last year, she unsuccessfully tried to pull the exact same stunt:
There are over 20 productions shooting in Georgia.
Is the entertainment industry willing to support the economy of a totally corrupt state that suppresses democracy; where the winner isn’t the best choice for the people but the best schemer or crook?

The evidence suggests that stunt failed.
“While the national numbers showed an economic hiccup in February, Georgia didn’t seem to notice,” The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported last Thursday. “The state added about 7,500 jobs during the month on the strength of hiring across a range of sectors, the Georgia Department of Labor reported Thursday. That’s slightly above the average of the previous five Februarys.”
The response on Twitter suggests Milano’s latest stunt will also fail:
I live here in Georgia movies are not supporting the Georgia economy you completely out of your mind that’s just going into studios pockets and then they might buy a car from a dealership or a house but it’s not supporting the economy we would be alright without Hollywood. pic.twitter.com/vMCEUaTDxg

@Alyssa_Milano you don’t even live in GA. Stay on your side of the country, worry about your state. Btw there are a few other states that has passed or are passing the same bill. Why are you always calling out GA? You mad because you can’t get work there?

Did it ever occur to you that just maybe Georgians do NOT BELIEVE IN murdering babies?? Why don’t you stick to murdering babies & addressing residents in your own state!

What business is of Hollywood
What goes on in our state
— Patricia Roach (@MountianMaid) March 24, 2019
“What business is [it] of Hollywood [w]hat goes on in our state?” one Twitter user asked.
Great question. It’s none of Hollywood’s business, but that doesn’t matter to the members of the increasingly radical far-left. They think that anything they have an opinion on is their business. To be clear, this applies to the leftists in Congress just as much as the leftists in Hollywood.
Case in point: Radically far-left socialist congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez reportedly plans to use the power of the House Financial Services Committee to force banks to stop conducting business with the people she dislikes, including gun manufacturers and private prison companies.
She and her peers’ plan specifically calls for “leveraging seats on the powerful House Financial Services Committee and a huge following on social media to confront finance industry executives and discourage them from funding oil pipelines, firearms makers and private prison companies that operate immigration detention centers,” Politico confirmed Saturday.
Ocasio-Cortez is trying to pressure banks into waging war on guns: “Not everything has to be done through legislation explicitly. We can also use the tools that we have here to pressure change in other ways as well.”https://t.co/NRJD8oXxJr

This strategy hinges on bullying and intimidation, but apparently, bullying and intimidation are now the Democrat Party’s key modus operandi. That and touting conspiracy theories.
But recall what happened when the Democrats tried last year to use bullying and intimidation to prevent then-Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh from being confirmed to the Supreme Court. Their bullying wound up forcing them to say “bye bye” to their dreams of retaking the Senate.
Speaking of “bye bye,” here are some more reactions to Milano’s tweet threat:
Bye bye we don’t want or need people like you in Georgia!
