Dozens of bipartisan business executives signed an open letter that warns Georgia’s anti-abortion law and other Republican policies will risk the state’s pro-business reputation.
The letter, released this morning, said the newly implemented restrictions that ban abortions as early as five weeks will force executives “to compete with other states on a whole different level, putting all Georgia firms at a disadvantage.”
“Companies now face the choice of moving to or staying in a state where half of their workforce is facing second-class citizenship and may be subject to investigation or prosecution for routine healthcare,” read the letter, which was promoted by allies of Stacey Abrams.
