GOT’s Sophie Turner Says She Won’t Work In Anti-Abortion States – There’s Just One Problem

Sophie Turner, star of HBO’s hit series Game of Thrones, joined in the ever-expanding mob of left-wing celebs vowing to boycott states that pass pro-life bills restricting abortion.

Following the lead of celebrities-turned-abortion advocates like Alyssa Milano, Turner, who played Sansa Stark in GOT, announced Thursday she’d signed a letter declaring she won’t work on shows being filmed in states like Georgia that pass abortion restrictions.

“I have yet to tell my agents I signed it,' Turner told Sky News. “They're going to be like ‘What? You can't work in these states?’ Yeah I can't work in these states.”

There’s just one little problem: if Turner wanted to make a grand declaration for abortion rights by boycotting places that don’t allow it, she’s already proven herself to be a colossal hypocrite.

For example, Turner just wrapped up filming Game of Thrones, for which she was getting paid more than $150,000 per episode by the show’s eighth and final season. The show -- particularly the parts that featured Turner's character -- was largely filmed in Northern Ireland...

...where abortion laws are even stricter than Alabama’s and where women can actually be jailed for having an abortion. Northern Ireland law bans abortion at any point for any reason other than to save a woman’s life.

Parts of the show were also filmed in Croatia, where elective abortions are banned after 10 weeks.

Then again, the show also skyrocketed Turner to international fame, put her on the map as a major Hollywood star, earned her spots in multiple upcoming films and jacked up the 23-year-old’s net worth to about $3.8 million.

Sure seems like a convenient time to jump on the publicity bandwagon. For women, of course.
