In May 2013, following a two-month trial and two weeks of deliberation, a jury convicted Philadelphia abortionist Dr. Kermit Gosnell on multiple counts of first-degree murder for killing three babies born alive at his westside clinic by severing their spinal cords.
While acquitting him of third-degree murder for the 2009 death of 41-year-old Karnamaya Mongar of Virginia, who died from a drug overdose during an abortion procedure at his clinic, the jury nevertheless found him guilty of a lesser charge of manslaughter. He was given three life sentences.
The Washington Post reported at the time:
Gosnell, in a dark suit and a maroon shirt, furrowed his brow and shook his head slightly but remained stoic when the verdicts were read in a packed Philadelphia courtroom just before 3 p.m. One juror appeared to cry. Prosecutors smiled in relief and later hugged colleagues.
The jury also acquitted him of murder in the death of another infant, known as Baby E, whom prosecutors had struggled to prove was alive after delivery. Judge Jeffrey P. Minehart previously dismissed three additional first-degree murder charges against Gosnell, each involving other infants.
Before the trial prosecutors were fairly certain that Gosnell had killed many more babies than he was charged for, but they simply did not have enough proof, so they didn’t pursue additional charges. When it was all said and done, however, they came to believe that Gosnell was one of America’s biggest serial killers.
Now, a new film set for release tells this grisly story, including how arrogant Gosnell was during the investigation and subsequent trial. And while the movie doesn’t take a hard pro-life stance – it’s not political – the Left is nevertheless terrified of the impression it will leave in the minds of millions of Americans who see it, especially now that there is a rock-solid conservative majority on the Supreme Court.
As such, the usual suspects – big tech, the mainstream media, and the Left-wing entertainment industry – are doing all they can to censor the movie, “Gosnell: America’s Biggest Serial Killer,” because, you know, they’re all about the First Amendment when it isn’t being used to skewer one of the Left’s sacred cows.
As Infowars notes, Facebook has already refused to allow filmmakers to advertise the film on their platform. And one of the more popular crowdfunding sites, Kickstarter, have refused them as well. In addition, National Public Radio (which is taxpayer-funded) also refused to carry ads for the film.
NPR’s problem with the ads? They won’t allow filmmakers to call Gosnell two things that honestly and truthfully describe him: An “abortionist” and a “murderer.”
Besides these censorship efforts, the filmmakers have also been stopped from showing the film in private screenings.
The film, directed by Nick Searcy, produced by Ann McElhinney and Phelim McAleer, and stars Dean Cain of “Superman” fame, is based on Gosnell’s 30-year abortion practice as well as the political media establishment that tried to cover up his crimes. It was announced in 2014, less than a year after Gosnell was convicted. It opened Friday, Oct. 12.
The story begins with Cain’s character, Philly police Det. James Wood, as he and fellow officers serve a search warrant for drugs and other paraphernalia at a building housing Gosnell’s clinic over suspicions of illegal prescription drug sales. As officers search the premises, Det. Wood and others detect a strong, foul odor – rotting flesh – from an office. Once they get inside, they make gruesome discoveries including parts of babies kept in jars. (Related: Patricia Heaton takes new role as pro-life activist for OneLife LA Rally.)
From there the film expertly captures the charged atmosphere that quickly built around the case: The legal questions, issues of race (Gosnell is black; Cain’s character is white and Catholic), pro-life, pro-choice, and other cultural, social, and political issues.
“Everyone needs to see the Gosnell movie, particularly young people,” noted Marjorie Dannenfelser of the Susan B. Anthony List. “I can’t recommend this movie more strongly. The Gosnell movie faces viewers with the brutality and inhumanity of abortion and it achieves this in a movie that looks as good as any Hollywood film. This movie will change hearts and minds about abortion. It needs to be available widely.”
Added Kristan Hawkins with Students for Life of America, “After watching the Gosnell movie, I’m angry, I’m sad, and I’m more motivated than ever to end abortion. Every American should watch GOSNELL. If pro-choice, they need to watch it and be able to defend their beliefs. If pro-life, they need to watch it and ask themselves why they aren’t active in ending this atrocity. This movie should be screened on every college campus in our nation.”
But of course, Americans will have to actually see it to know and understand its impact and why it’s so important at this point in our history. And the truth-hating Left is doing all it can to prevent that from happening.
