Boycotts, love them or hate them, they’re inevitable when businesses pick sides in a culture war. And with pro-life legislation making its way through state legislatures across America, it seems media giants are more than willing to support the right for doctors and mothers to kill their unborn, future customers.
Disney CEO Bob Iger said it would be “very difficult” for Disney to continue filming in Georgia if the state’s new abortion law goes into effect.
Netflix not only threatened to leave Georgia, it announced it would work with the ACLU to “fight” the bill in court.
Crazy, isn’t it?
In this scenario, a state trying to protect innocent unborn babies from being killed is the big, bad monster.
But to some, up is down and black is white.
Anyway, a petition was started on redpetition.com that encourages people to stop their subscriptions to Netflix, Hulu and Disney Plus.
“The mainstream media and entertainment companies have come out in full force against conservative values and it’s time we show them that our voice matters,” the petition reads. “Perhaps they just don’t realize how much the conservative audience is worth?”
Every time someone signs the petition and inputs the information, it automatically calculates your value as a customer and the loss to media companies every single month.
“We are asking you to stand with us to stand up to the liberal agenda against families and basic morality,” the petition states. Let’s send a big red number letting the mainstream media know exactly how much life is worth.”
Full disclosure, I cancelled my own Netflix account over their response to the Georgia law.
I mean, we can disagree on certain things, but killing unborn babies is not one of them.
And I did not go hunting for Netflix’s position, they put it out there publicly. They demand women be granted the right to have their unborn children killed.
As a customer, in our free market economy, there has to be a line somewhere in terms of what businesses I will and won’t deal with. Businesses who not only support killing unborn babies, but fight with the ACLU to continue the killing is probably a good place to draw the line.
