1/ "Hillbilly Elegy" author J.D. Vance's family was from Eastern Kentucky and he mainly grew up in Southwest Ohio. I'm sure another Appalachian state (there are 13 to choose from) could use the influx of cash that a large scale Netflix production would bring in. #sundaymorning
2/ If you haven't read "Hillbilly Elegy", it's worth it if only to understand the righteous indignation in the far superior book about Appalachia called "What You Are Getting Wrong About Appalachia" by Elizabeth Catte #Sundaymorning amazon.com/What-Getting-W…
3/ Ron Howard and Brian Grazer say they're shooting "Hillbilly Elegy" in Georgia so people who are counting on that income aren't left in the lurch, but if the abortion ban makes it through the courts, they'll move the production elsewhere. #sundaymorning
4/ This is exactly why the shoot should be moved out of state: to make the financial pain of these decisions felt. Nothing will change if states that pass draconian abortion bans are rewarded with financial windfalls from Hollywood. #sundaymorning
5/ So far in 2019, 9 states (Georgia, Kentucky, Ohio, Mississippi, Arkansas, Utah, Missouri, Louisiana, Alabama) have passed laws through one or both state houses to limit abortion well before fetal viability (24 weeks). via @nytimes #sundaymorning
6/ This is just the beginning. None of these bills are intended to stop at the state level. They are intended to prompt SCOTUS rulings against Roe V. Wade. What we need is for Hollywood to boycott these states to send a message to the next state that wants to try that shit.
7/ And what we need, even more than that, is to ELECT WOMEN at the state level. Every election matters. When women are elected, women's rights are protected. #sundaymorning motherjones.com/politics/2019/…
8/ For instance, here's the super-diverse group of folks who passed Georgia's "heartbeat" bill. (via @senatorjen) #sundaymorning #ElectWomen
9/ There are only 22 women in the Alabama legislature. That's 16%.

There are 149,443 more women than men in Alabama, which is 3.08% of the total population.

We can do better.

10/ There are 32 women in the Arkansas legislature. That's 24%.

There are 51,737 more women than men in the state, which is 1.74% of the total population.

Thanks to @mje415 and @MotherJones for this great article and the graphs used in this thread.

Yes, you can blame the patriarchy for these horrible abortion laws. We did the math. #sundaymorning #electwomen
