    Georgia governor Brian Kemp dismissed calls for a boycott of the state on Saturday following the passage of a law that outlaws abortion once a fetal heartbeat can be detected. Kemp signed Georgia's heartbeat bill into law on May 7, prompting many celebrities to rail against the measure on social media and in interviews. Actress Alyssa Milano told BuzzFeed News that she would leave the Netflix show Insatiable if the production chooses to continue filming in Georgia. ďI have to be there for another month but you can be sure I will fight tooth and nail to move Insatiable to...

    South Bend mayor and Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg demonstrated once again that he marches to a rather warped brand of Christian theology. As the Hollywood elite joins hand-in-hand to boycott the state of Georgia for passing a fetal heartbeat bill that bans abortions once doctors can detect a baby's heartbeat in the mother's womb, the South Bend mayor has denounced the newly-acted law as a "cruel attack" on women. According to LifeNews, Buttigieg denounced the law in a tweet last week shortly after Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp signed the bill. "A woman has enough to deal with when it...

    Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp signed the "heartbeat" bill into law Tuesday morning. Kemp kept his campaign promise in signing the bill, HB 481, technically called the "Living Infants Fairness and Equality (LIFE) Act," that will prohibit abortions in the state after a heartbeat is detected, as early as six weeks into a pregnancy. The law allows exceptions in the case of rape, incest, or if the life of the mother is in danger. Before the signing of the bill, State Rep. Ed Setzler, pointed to science, law, and the simple fact that common sense says a beating heart is a...

    VALDOSTA, Ga. (WCTV) -- Valdosta State University seniors are taking their last steps across campus, but some students are having second thoughts about walking across the stage at graduation. Next weekend's commencement ceremonies at Valdosta State are bringing some controversy with them. Georgia Governor Brian Kemp will be speaking, and that isn't sitting well with some students. VSU administration has told students they planned to invite the governor to speak at commencement, regardless of who won November's election. Last month, the university announced Kemp would deliver the commencement address, and it's been stirring up a lot of controversy on campus.

    †Democrats have short memories. That can be the only explanation for their shoddy, immature, and ultimately laughable assertion that the Georgia gubernatorial election was stolen from them. Democrat Stacey Abrams acknowledged her defeat after a prolonged legal battle showed that she would be unable to trigger a recount or a runoff, as Republican Brian Kemp maintained his two-point lead (50/48). Granted, she admitted defeat, she did not technically concede. She feels that the election was illegitimate, and refuses to call Kemp a legitimate governor. Hereís what she said last Sunday (via WaPo): As the Associated Press called the Georgia governorís...
