Multiple companies including AMC and Disney have threatened to leave Georgia if the abortion bill goes into effect. Spike Lee and John Legend have suggested boycotting the state.

The former gubernatorial candidate and potential presidential candidate wrote Georgians will be "at risk" if the state loses the jobs and economic boost it gets from the film industry.
