Because it's of no use to make indictments of those countries if there is no political advantage to it.

I'm not sure I follow.

What's the political advantage for Disney? They're a private company, a business. They're not running for office but supporting their (female) employees who potentially may work in a US state which violates due process (re: their Constitutional rights to choose).

Filming in Bolivia or Croatia is tangentially related to the main argument, other than exposing women's rights issues in those nations. Neither country infringes on the Constitutional rights of American women. These women are free to return to America if a procedure is necessary, unless it's in Georgia or one of the other Heartbeat states.

The thing with Georgia’s law is that if they left to another state to get the procedure done, they could never return to Georgia without fear of imprisonment.

How the heck do you even enforce that? Will there be some sort of national database of women who have received the procedure?

The District Attorneys of the major metro Atlanta counties have already gone on the record to say they will not prosecute these women.

The Jolt: Kemp’s silence on Hollywood threats speaks volumes

One by one, almost every major Hollywood studio has released a statement warning that each could leave the state if the anti-abortion “heartbeat” law goes into effect in January.

And Gov. Brian Kemp, the signator of those new restrictions, has greeted each with the same response: Silence. No public statement, no social media retort, no show of force from surrogates..."

What is meant is that Disney wins no points for its 'cause' unless they advocate for their employees and their consumers and what they deem to be in their hearts and minds...and those people care a great deal more about what's happening in their backyard.

Nor should they. We don’t need a modern day equivalent of the Mann Act. If a state wants to impose restrictions it shouldn’t prevent people from going elsewhere.

Where is your link for that? That sounds like some nonsense you picked up on Facebook. The "crime" would have been committed in another state and would not be under Georgia's jurisdiction.

There is NO current legal scenario in which that could be done.

I was hearing it all over the place for a while. Doing a search brings up conflicting information though. Some outlets saying that women will be prosecuted:

Quote:
Douglas County District Attorney Ryan Leonard told Law.com’s “Daily Report” on Wednesday that women in Georgia should prepare for the possibility that they could be criminally prosecuted for having an abortion if the law signed by Governor Brian Kemp takes effect as planned in January of next year.
“If you look at it from purely a legal standpoint, if you take the life of another human being, it’s murder,” Leonard told the outlet.

Others saying it’s complicated and a little murky:

Quote:
The Georgia law doesn’t specifically say women aren’t subject to prosecution; it’s silent on the issue. So the law’s critics are assuming that woman can and will be prosecuted. That’s not certain.

On the other hand, the law’s supporters can’t say for sure that women won’t be prosecuted.
