Despite stopping in Georgia over the weekend to celebrate with Tyler Perry, Tiffany Haddish is standing by her commitment to never work in the state again if the controversial fetal heartbeat abortion law remains in place.
“I’m not working,” she told Extra at the opening gala of Tyler Perry Studios this weekend. “I am having fun… I might get pregnant, and then what?”
The comedian is sticking to a commitment that she made over the summer to boycott working in Georgia until the heartbeat bill is rescinded. The law, signed by Georgia Governor Brian Kemp in May, effectively bans abortions after a baby’s heartbeat can be detected–which can be as early as six weeks.
In June, she cancelled her show at Atlanta’s Fox Theatre “until they withdraw Measure HB481.”
“After much deliberation, I am postponing my upcoming show in Atlanta,” the comedian and actress said in a statement then. “I love the state of Georgia, but I need to stand with women and until they withdraw Measure HB481, I cannot in good faith perform there.”
Last week, a federal judge in Georgia placed an injunction on the law – following the lead of other judges in states that have tried to enact restrictive abortion measures and keeping the law from taking effect while it’s being litigated, Georgia Public Broadcasting reports.Share :
