Gosnell: The Story the Liberal Media Hopes You Ignore
The most prolific serial killer in America currently resides in a correctional institute in Huntingdon, Penn., but hardly had anyone knew it until October 12 when “Gosnell: The Trial of America’s Biggest Serial Killer” was released. The story of a Philadelphia doctor, charged with seven counts of first-degree murder and one count of third-degree murder for killing seven babies who survived his abortions, was hidden for too long, until two journalists started their investigation and delved into the details of the “doctor’s” decades-long crime spree.
“A new film is telling the details of a horror so unspeakable, it shocked federal investigators. It’s a story that needs to be told,” writes Life News.
Directed by Nick Searcy, the movie dramatizes the horrific, real-life account of Dr. Kermit Gosnell, the west Philadelphia abortionist whose clinic was described in a 2011 Grand Jury report as a “house of horrors.”
During a drug raid there, authorities discovered unsanitary conditions, remnants of 45 aborted fetuses in bags inside freezers, rows of jars containing fetal feet (which was his macabre collection), and untrained staff administering medications, which resulted in the death of at least one patient. Gosnell would sometimes have a bowl of cereal as he was performing an abortion.
His accomplices in crime were a staff of dropouts, drug addicts, and unlicensed medical professionals posing as doctors.
Ann McElhinney, a filmmaker, also added that “he trained his untrained staff to do this while he wasn’t there, and when I say untrained staff, these are people posing as nurses, who have a seventh grade education and have a cocktail of alcoholism, mental health issues, and criminal difficulties. People who would not be … as the detective in the case, Jim Wood, said, ‘You wouldn’t let them mow your lawn, let alone give people anesthesia.’ This is who gave anesthesia and, in fact, the best anesthesiologist in the premises was a 15-year-old.”
The most horrible thing about Gosnell’s story is that he committed his crimes while being “a pillar of his community,” an advocate for women’s “reproductive health,” and a respected member of Philadelphia’s professional elite. Moreover, the “pro-choice” political, bureaucratic, and media establishment smiled on Gosnell—and gave him carte blanche to kill.
Journalists Ann McElhinney and Phelim McAleer, who brought to light the atrocities at the hands of Gosnell in their book, said “Gosnell operated a clinic that should never have been allowed to remain open.”
In 2013, Gosnell was sentenced to life without parole after being convicted of first-degree murder in the deaths of three babies born alive and then stabbed to death with a scissors, and one count of involuntary manslaughter in the death of 41-year-old Karnamaya Mongar, who paid Gosnell to perform an abortion. No one but Gosnell knows how many babies’ lives were taken though, as he was not inspected for 17 years.
As Life News reports, Gosnell and his crimes were the subject of a media blackout.
“Along the way, the story became about more than Gosnell himself. It became about the media blackout of his trial. A famous photo of the courtroom was circulated that showed rows of seats reserved for the press, empty. Apparently, the trial of an abortionist who had murdered born-alive infants wasn’t a story newsrooms wanted to cover – at least until they were guilted into it.”
“I first reported on this real-life horror story nearly eight years ago, but you've probably not heard or read a word about ‘Gosnell' in the mainstream press, TV news, or online. The conspiracy of silence is the result of both malign neglect and active suppression of inconvenient truths:
– One CNN commentator flippantly explained that the network’s lack of interest was a ‘business decision,’ not bias.
– Taxpayer-supported National Public Radio refused to run sponsored ads describing Kermit Gosnell as an ‘abortionist’ because its legal department determined the accurate description violated the left-leaning network’s ‘value neutral’ platform. LOL.
– And this past week, Facebook banned advertising for the movie– a continuation of its systemic crackdown on conservative speech[.] ...
Why? Because radical leftists zealously believe that abortion must be defended at all costs, even if it means whitewashing its bloody, half-century legacy of mass genocide in our nation’s inner cities.”
Director and actor Nick Searcy said the actual story is quite ghastly, and their intent was to focused on telling the story without showing the blood.
“The movie is not overtly trying to be political or advance an argument; it’s just telling the facts of what happened in this case,” Searcy said. “But there’s a fear of just knowing what an actual abortion is and what a legal abortion is and what constitutes an illegal abortion.”
“Gosnell is a movie necessary to be shown to teenagers and older. Understanding the gruesome nature that is abortion is the way to open the eyes of those refusing to address it. One of the most powerful scenes in the movie occurred during the trial when an abortion doctor describes exactly how an abortion is performed. The simple description will emote visceral reaction,” reports Freedom Project.
So go see the movie. Go see the truth about what’s been covered up for so long.
