  • Something else missed here is that times have changed. GA's law is not your grandmother's abortion law. Sex education and contraception is widely available without the taboo. Home pregnancy tests are on the drugstore shelves in case you don't care enough to take precautions against unplanned pregnancy. The day-after-pill is a rush of human hormones to prevent implantation of a human zygote. I think out here "in the dark" we know Hollywood production companies personnel including executives and actresses

    Something else missed here is that times have changed. GA's law is not your grandmother's abortion law. Sex education and contraception is widely available without the taboo. Home pregnancy tests are on the drugstore shelves in case you don't care enough to take precautions against unplanned pregnancy. The day-after-pill is a rush of human hormones to prevent implantation of a human zygote. I think out here "in the dark" we know Hollywood production companies personnel including executives and actresses don't want to shut down filming because of an unplanned pregnancy. If a human life has to die to protect multimillion dollar contracts and the careers for which they stand that's a terrible shame. It's Orwellian, this generation, when "get a life" stands in for "take a life". "Get real" stands in for "Be fake, have fun, take the money and run." Get real, take precautions, take life seriously. Your identity won't be worth a thing when you are dead, gone and forgotten, blasted by death to molecules, only persistent as the stench in star dust which persists, but a legacy of life that is a thing presenting possibilities.
