ATLANTA (AP) – Actress and actress Tiffany Haddish has canceled her next appearance in Atlanta because of the new restrictive law on abortion in Georgia.
The media reports that the star of "Girls Trip" sent a statement to ticket holders Saturday, claiming that she could not "in good faith" occur in Georgia without removing the so-called bill of heartbeat . Haddish was scheduled to perform on June 22 at the Fox Theater.
The new law would ban abortions once the fetal heart rate is detected, which can take just six weeks before many women know that they are pregnant. Unless blocked in court, it will come into force in 2020. The ACLU has already announced that the group will hold a legal appeal.
Major Hollywood studios have said that they could re-evaluate filming in Georgia if the law comes into effect.
