True-Crime Drama About Abortion

From The Federalist:
“Gosnell: The Trial of America’s Biggest Serial Killer” tells the story of Kermit Gosnell from the early stages of the police investigation into his abortion facility through the end of his court trial. Gosnell was an American doctor convicted of murdering babies born alive after abortions, of involuntary manslaughter for the death of a mother following an abortion in his facility, and of several felony counts of late-term abortion.

The film debuts across America Oct. 12, 2018, and chronicles the prosecution and police forces who worked to end Gosnell’s macabre abuses of women and children in Philadelphia. The true-crime film is based on a best-selling book written by a husband and wife team, Phelim McAleer and Ann McElhinny, with a desire to tell the stories of all of the people hurt by the practices in Gosnell’s facility.

From The Christian Post:
You need to go see the new movie "Gosnell: The Trial of America's Biggest Serial Killer," starring actor Dean Cain in the leading role. It's in theaters nationwide this Friday. And while you're at it, take several friends with you. But if you've never heard about this film, I can't say I blame you. You're not alone.

Not only should you go see it if you care about the plight of unborn children and their mothers, but a purchase of this particular movie ticket is a rebuke to the disgraceful behavior of the American mainstream press a few years ago. Maybe I'm already starting to sound too much like President Trump railing against fake news, but it sure chaps me that much of the general public still does not know about this story. What is worse, the media's appalling conduct about this continues to this day.

For those who remain unfamiliar with what happened, the trial of Kermit Gosnell — a Philadelphia abortionist who was convicted in May 2013 of first-degree murder in the deaths of a few newborns and involuntary manslaughter in the death of one of his patients — was almost completely ignored in national news outlets when the proceedings began. Although it ought to have been a front-page, above-the-fold crime story, the national news media was only forced to cover it after weeks of intense outcry and pressure from independent citizen journalists, pro-life activists and some Republican legislators.

Gosnell's undoing all began in 2011 when police raided his clinic in a sketchy Philadelphia neighborhood as part of a narcotics bust. But what they found inside was a house of horrors straight out of "Silence of the Lambs." The remains of human fetuses stored in refrigerators. Forty-seven dead babies found in the basement. Feral cats scampering around the facility. The severed feet of dead babies preserved in small jars. Rusty, unsterilized medical instruments and worn out equipment. An overwhelmingly foul stench. Staff administering medication and facilitating medical services for which they had no formal training. The movie shines a light on all of this very effectively. (Read more.)
