Netflix is thinking about getting out of Georgia because it passed anti-abortion laws.

Yet they happily film in Egypt where it is illegal, too.

Netflix plans to step up production in the Middle East, notably Jordan and Egypt, where abortion is illegal, after mulling a company boycott in Georgia on account of the “heartbeat” abortion bill.

Netflix’s Chief Content Officer, Ted Sarandos, stated, Tuesday, that the company would “rethink” its Georgia investments if the “heartbeat” abortion bill takes effect.

Netflix’s expressed reluctance to produce content in regions with strong anti-abortion laws seemingly does not extend to the Middle East, where recently the company has been ramping up the number of undertaken projects, according to Variety.

“Paranormal” is the most recent three Netflix original series to be set and produced in the Middle East.

“Jinn” is a Netflix produced teen drama with supernatural elements that was shot in Jordan, according to Variety. In Jordan, abortions are “very restrictive” and only legal when it is deemed that the mother’s physical and mental health are at risk or fetal impairment is determined, according to Haaretz.

“Al Rawabi School for Girls” is another Netflix original, also shot and produced in Jordan, featuring a female lead cast, according to Rapid TV News.

The Daily Caller News Foundation reached out to Netflix for comment but the company declined to comment on the subject.

    I don’t do Netflix. I buy DVDs of movies of my choice most made pre-1980. I just finish one that has a remastered 12 episode series titled: “Radar Men from the Moon”. circa 1952. It’s a hoot and reminds me of the days where us kids went to a local movie got in for 50 cents and after the pledge of allegiance, the National anthem we sat back eating a box of Cracker Jack or a yummy box of Nonpareils and saw 2 full length features with a 1/2 hour episode of a serial like Flash Gorden, Buck Rogers, Tim Tyler and his Jungle Cruiser or John Winslow of the Navy in between the main features.

    I have hundreds of DVDs I’ve collected over the years and even had some ole VHS tapes burned onto DVDs. I figure when I go toes-up my daughter can sell them on eBay.

    Will Netflix join Disney in “Get Woke, Go Broke”?

    Netflix employs Zero and his beard, which is reason enough for me to avoid them like the plague.
