Anti-Abortion Legislation Gives Some States A Case Of 'Bathroom Bill' Economic Deja Vu National
Sunday, June 2, 2019
North Carolina took a nearly $4B hit to its economy when companies and tourism-generating events left the state after it passed anti-LGBT legislation in 2016. Three years later, other Sun Belt states seem to have missed the lesson in business and politics.
Georgia, Kentucky and Mississippi have passed similar bills this year where abortion is banned once a heartbeat is detected. Arkansas and Utah have passed bills banning abortion after 18 weeks of pregnancy. Alabama passed the strictest ban, outlawing the procedure entirely with few exceptions.
