Hollywood hypocrisy: Outraged over their industry's sexual predators but in lock-step supporting the aborting and killing of babies

Ever since its inception, Hollywood has been a petri dish of infidelity, sexual perversions, and even pedophilia.  However despite the mock outrage that has come from some members of the industry who suddenly 'grew a conscience' when the #metoo movement uncovered a number of their secrets, abuse of children either born or unborn still remains high on their agenda.


And perhaps there is no better example of this in how many members of the film industry are publicly going against the will of the people in choosing to stand up for a program that has seen over 60 million babies aborted over the past 46 years.
Over the last several decades, Georgia has become known as the Hollywood of the South. It’s become one of America’s top movie and TV locations, thanks to generous tax incentives; in 2017, it surpassedCalifornia as a shooting site for the highest-grossing domestic films, and it’s also the backdrop for many TV shows, including Netflix’s Stranger Things and Ozark, AMC’s The Walking Dead, and the forthcoming HBO series Watchmen. But on May 7, when Georgia governor Brian Kemp signed into law an extreme “fetal heartbeat” bill that bans women in the state from having abortions after six weeks of pregnancy, the film community’s many liberal denizens began questioning the industry’s future in the state. 
A handful of Hollywood producers and production outfits such as David Simon,Killer Films (First Reformed), Color Force (Crazy Rich Asians), and Mark Duplassvowed to boycott the state in the wake of the law. “Don’t give your business to Georgia,” Duplass tweeted last week. “Will you pledge with me not to film anything in Georgia until they reverse this backwards legislation?” Actress Zoe Kazan joined in, tweeting, "Actors, producers, directors: refuse to film in georgia & alabama. call the governors, tell them why." – Vanity Fair
Netflix:

In response to Georgia’s new law prohibiting aborting babies with a detectable heartbeat, Netflix said that the company may "rethink" filming in Georgia if the law goes into effect. In response, some conservatives are saying they will consider boycotting Netflix if they follow through on the Georgia boycott. – Daily Wire
Disney:
Disney CEO Bob Iger said on Wednesday that if Georgia carries out the state's strict new abortion laws, telling Reuters that it would be "very difficult" for the company to continue filming in the state because "many people who work for us will not want to work there, and we will have to heed their wishes in that regard."  - Zerohedge
For the most part, corporations have one single responsibility under the law, and that is their fiduciary responsibility to their shareholders.  This is why pharmaceutical companies are rarely held criminally liable for selling toxic products, or why many decisions within companies are made primarily by beancounters versus moral advocates.  But what is most interesting in the current debate between Hollywood and the states which choose to legislate according their their constituents will is that a potential boycott of the state of Georgia has nothing to do with money, but with the political ideologies of a craven and sexually deviant industry.
