The respective directors of The Force Awakens, The Rise of Skywalker and Get Out say they will donate money to fight a new Georgia law that prohibits abortion after an unborn baby’s heartbeat is detected.
J.J. Abrams and Jordan Peele are executive producers of HBO’s Lovecraft Country series, which is expected to begin filming in Georgia in the coming weeks. Both say they oppose the law signed this month by Republican Gov. Brian Kemp.
“In a few weeks we start shooting our new show, Lovecraft Country, and will do so standing shoulder to shoulder with the women of Georgia,” Abrams and Peele said in a joint statement, according to The Hollywood Reporter. “Governor Kemp’s ‘Fetal Heartbeat’ Abortion Law is an unconstitutional effort to further restrict women and their health providers from making private medical decisions on their terms. Make no mistake, this is an attack aimed squarely and purposely at women.”
Abrams directed the 2015 Star War film The Force Awakens and is the director of the new Star Wars film The Rise of Skywalker, which will release later this year. Peele directed Get Out(2017) and Us (2019).
The two men say they will donate Lovecraft Country proceeds to fight the new Georgia law.
