Since Governor Brain Kemp signed the “Heartbeat Bill” into law, Hollywood actors and producers have threatened a boycott of Georgia. One tweet from Alyssa Milano gave the list of many actors that are boycotting the state.

The list includes notable names like Amy Schumer, Alec Baldwin, Rosie O’Donnell, Ben Stiller, and many more. Jason Bateman has also announced that he will no longer work in the State of Georgia. What’s even more threatening for the state is that Netflix announced it may need to “rethink” their operations in Georgia, and they will work with the ACLU to fight this law. Disney has also announced that they are considering leaving the state, stating that it would be “very difficult” to continue working in Georgia.

In December of 1973, the Supreme Court made one of its most controversial (and worst) rulings, Roe v Wade. It declared that the Constitution protects abortion; therefore, the states could not pass restrictions on it. However, states could pass laws to limit abortions in the third trimester.

Despite this, Republicans in numerous states have recently passed laws with very strict restrictions on abortion. Clearly, this is an attempt to get a lawsuit and with it, a case to the Supreme Court. Hopefully, this will lead to the Supreme Court overturning Roe v Wade, once more leaving the issue to the states.

Libertarian champion Ron Paul made an appearance on RT recently where he gave his thoughts on the 2020 election. When asked about the candidates, Paul showed little interest in most of the twenty plus candidates running for the Democratic primary. However, he was very enthusiastic about Representative from Hawaii Tulsi Gabbard, calling her the “very best” option.
