Part 108. CDC promotes pro choice states as best life expectancy.
Part 108. After the 2008 election, the CDC began ranking each state’s life expectancy selecting Democrat ‘’pro-choice states that offer meaningful tax rebates and production incentives, and encourage everyone to explore these alternatives: California, Colorado, Hawaii, Illinois, Maine, Nevada, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, Washington’’ as best per Women in Film.

This is Part 108 of a health series. The first 30 parts and part 107 compared census based life expectancy and death rate tables, ranking states by how long we live, from 1960 to 2015. Included are medical conditions rating Utah’s #1 health rank. Since 2009, the CDC correlates states’ longevity by pro-choice laws, with pro-choice states best, and pro-life states worse. The CDC’s National Vital Statistics Reports looped the changes based on state policies on abortion.

“We have many women working on productions in Georgia, whose rights, along with millions of others, will be severely restricted by this law,” Netflix chief content officer Ted Sarandos said in a statement to Variety. “It’s why we will work with the ACLU and others to fight it in court.
“Given the legislation has not yet been implemented, we’ll continue to film there — while also supporting partners and artists who choose not to. Should it ever come into effect, we’d rethink our entire investment in Georgia.”
The southeastern state is among several that recently adopted tough abortion legislation that they hope will ultimately lead to a reversal of the landmark 1973 Supreme Court ruling Roe v Wade that made abortion legal nationwide.
Following adoption of the law in Georgia, where a huge number of blockbusters, including “Avengers: Infinity War” and “Black Panther,” as well as TV series such as AMC’s “The Walking Dead” and Netflix’s “Stranger Things” and “Ozark” are shot, there have been mounting calls for Hollywood to snub the state.
Last year Georgia reported some 92,000 jobs and an economic impact of more than $9 billion from production.
Several major studios contacted by AFP to comment on the issue have declined comment.
A number of actors, however, have pledged to boycott filming in the state, including “Ozark” star Jason Bateman, Alec Baldwin and Judd Apatow.
“A woman’s right to make choices about her own body is fundamental to her personal and professional well-being,” Kirsten Schaffer, executive director of the nonprofit group Women in Film, told AFP in a statement. “We support people who make the choice not to take their production to Georgia or take a job in Georgia because of the draconian anti-choice law.
“To that end, we’ve compiled a list of pro-choice states that offer meaningful tax rebates and production incentives, and encourage everyone to explore these alternatives: California, Colorado, Hawaii, Illinois, Maine, Nevada, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, Washington,” she added.
