Netflix Threatened to Pull Out of Georgia Over Abortion Ban. Christians Launched a Petition to Cancel Subscriptions that Cost the Streaming Service $41,800

LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA – MAY 29: The Netflix logo is displayed at Netflix offices on Sunset Boulevard on May 29, 2019 in Los Angeles, California. Netflix chief content officer Ted Sarandos said the company will reconsider their ‘entire investment’ in Georgia if a strict new abortion law is not overturned in the state. According to state data, the film industry in Georgia contributed $2.7 billion in direct spending while supporting 92,000 local jobs. (Photo by Mario Tama/Getty Images)

Has a mass exodus of Netflix, Hulu and Disney Plus already begun? The reaction to a new petition would certainly make it appear that way.

A petition launched yesterday that was only up for mere hours before Netflix alone lost $41,800, with Hulu and Disney Plus suffering another $20,000 in losses. Both numbers represent estimated annual losses based on the “Money lost per month” total on the petition website.

After these streaming giants announced that they would consider pulling investment from the state of Georgia following the passing of a sweeping abortion ban, many pro-lifers have decided to pull the plug on their subscriptions.

Remember when I said I would need the help of everyone on my friends list? This is it. Sign the form and send a $$$ to Netflix, not just a name. http://redpetition.com
