Game of Thrones Star Won’t Work in Georgia After Abortion Ban, Despite Working Northern Ireland Where Abortion is Illegal

Meanwhile, in Hollywood…

Thursday in celebrity stupidity, a prominent actress who starred in HBO’s “Game of Thrones” said that she has signed a saying she will no longer work in states where “women’s rights are under attack.”

“Sophie Turner was included in the legions of outspoken A-Listers who rallied to criticise the American states of Alabama, Georgia and more in the wake of them passing a near total ban on women accessing an abortion,” according to Yahoo News.

However, much of “Game of Thrones,” from which Turner became both a household name and very wealthy, was filmed in Northern Ireland, known for its strictly pro-life abortion laws. In fact, HuffPost described Northern Ireland’s abortion laws as “even worse than Alabama’s.

Now that “Game of Thrones” is finished, and she doesn’t have to worry about her boycott affecting her career, Turner is all about activism.

“I have yet to tell my agents I signed it,’ Turner reportedly told Sky News. “They’re going to be like: ‘What? You can’t work in these states?’ Yeah I can’t work in these states.”

When a reporter called her out for her apparent hypocrisy, Turner brushed the question aside.

‘There was a lot of work of Game of Thrones [in Northern Ireland],” she said. “So luckily we’re moving on.”

Luckily, indeed.

Georgia, which is a large show business filming destination on the East Coast, is one of six states to pass pro-life laws that protect a child’s life either from conception, or from the detection of a heartbeat.

“Ohio, Kentucky, Georgia, Alabama, and Missouri have all passed similar legislation in what is widely considered a push by conservatives to challenge the Supreme Court’s Roe v. Wade decision,” as Big League Politics reported earlier today.

“Gov. Brian Kemp of Georgia began the latest wave of pro-life legislation earlier this month.”
