A review of Georgia’s abortion law is on hold after a Federal appeals court issued a stay on Monday, pending a decision by the U.S. Supreme Court on a similar case. If the law were upheld, it could have a disastrous effect on Georgia’s position as a red-hot hub for film and television production. When the so-called “heartbeat law” first passed in 2019, there was an up-roar against it from Hollywood with threats to leave the state. deadline.com
