Hollywood Studios Ignore Demand from TV Showrunners, Directors for ‘Abortion Safety Protocols’


Hollywood studios have ignored a demand from more than 1,500 TV showrunners, writers, and directors urging the companies to commit to “abortion safety protocols,” as well as to promise to stop donating to pro-life political candidates.

Instead of addressing the specific demands, studios including Disney, Netflix, Amazon, and NBCUniversal issued a vaguely worded joint statement this week that recommended talent defer to their relevant union health plans.

The studios said they are “continuing to evaluate ways that we can best provide for our employees and workers who support our productions.”

In their statement, the companies mostly avoided addressing the specific demands, which include commitments to providing abortion travel subsidies for employees as well as criminal and civil legal protection for employees.
