AT&T Inc.’s WarnerMedia, Comcast Corp.’s NBCUniversal and Walt Disney Co. are following Netflix Inc.’s lead in threatening to leave Georgia if a controversial anti-abortion law takes effect.

WarnerMedia -- owner of HBO, CNN and the Warner Bros. studio -- said on Thursday that it will “reconsider Georgia as the home to any new productions” if the restrictions become law. That echoed remarks made by Disney Chief Executive Officer Bob Iger on Wednesday. He told Reuters it would be “very difficult” to keep film production in the state if abortion ban is upheld.
