The actress and comedian is the first celebrity to cancel a show due to the new restrictive laws put in place.

“After much deliberation, I am postponing my upcoming show in Atlanta,” Haddish, 39, said in a statement to ticketholders Saturday, according to The Atlanta Journal-Constitution. “I love the state of Georgia, but I need to stand with women and until they withdraw Measure HB481, I cannot in good faith perform there.”

The Girls Trip star was slated to perform at the Fox Theatre in Atlanta on June 22.

The new law would ban abortion once a fetal heartbeat is detected, which can be as early as six weeks, before many women know they are pregnant. Unless the law is blocked in court, it’s set to go into effect in 2020.
