Hollywood giant Netflix, which has a $155 billion market cap, will "rethink" its "entire investment in Georgia" should an anti-abortion law take effect, Chief Content Officer Ted Sarandos said in a statement obtained by TheWrap.

Should it ever come into effect, we'd rethink our entire investment in Georgia."
