Would Disney World close if the Florida legislature passed the ‘Pain capable unborn child protection act’?

“Our heritage and ideals, our code and standards – the things we live by and teach our children – are preserved or diminished by how freely we exchange ideas and feelings.” – Walt Disney

There is a growing movement in states like Alabama, Georgia, Ohio, Missouri, Louisiana and others to protect the unborn.

This had led various media companies, actors and actresses to threaten to boycott some of these states. Among them is Disney, which has Disney World and Disney Studios in Orlando, FL.

Watch this commentary by Computing Forever titled “Disney, Netflix, WarnerMedia Threaten to Boycott Georgia Over Abortion Law“:

In 2020 Florida may become the next state to limit abortions.

QUESTION: Would Disneyland in Orlando close if Florida Senate Bill 558 the “Florida Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act” became law?

Would Disney stop making films in its Orlando studios?

We may find out as Florida Senator Joe Gruters fully intends to re-introduce his legislation. Senator Gruters in an email states:

I was the co sponsor of the heartbeat bill and the main sponsor of the pain capable unborn child protection act and will file the same legislation again next year.

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis is a supporter of limiting abortion. As a member of Congress he voted “yea” for HR 4712 Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act. Politico reported that then candidate DeSantis, “pledged…to sign legislation to ban abortions ‘after a fetal heartbeat is detected’.”

The Florida House in 2019 introduced HB 235 the “Heartbeat Bill.”

It will be interesting to see what the leadership of Disney would decide to do if the “Florida Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act” and/or the “Heartbeat Bill” become Florida law.

    If Disney promotes its ticket sales to children you would think it would want to protect its future clientele.

    I doubt it would close but if it did then no loss to our nation. Disney just needs new management.

    Disney World is promoting Gay Pride with a proposed gay parade. I feel it’s not in the best interest of our youngsters to push the gay lifestyle.
    I will never visit Disney or watch their movies if this is what they’re about.

    Promoting LGBT-Went to Disney area on business, 15yrs ago in June, personally, I could care less behind closed doors….But Disney offers no warnings. If you wore a Red Shirt.. you were trolling. Sad…. German family of 5 arrived night before, saw them later that evening with sad faces….30k holiday, and it was a Gay Pridefest within the park…..they were pissed. Memo? #1 Dont do June in the parks. #2. Dont wear Red n June. #3 Dont wear Pink….just in case—and the Germans left….
