‘Gosnell’: The movie

Arguably, a contributing factor to the continuation of abortion is that it is performed out of sight and thus, out of many minds.

A film about one of the worst practitioners of abortion, Kermit Gosnell, opens Oct. 12 in at least 600 theaters. Gosnellis the Philadelphia abortionist sentenced in 2013 to life in prison without parole for the murder of a baby born alive in a botched abortion.

The film, “Gosnell: The Trial of America’s Biggest Serial Killer,” is based on trial transcripts and police records.

While on the SteynAtSea cruise we were treated to a showing of the film and a chat with producers Ann McElhinney and Phelim McAleer. The “chicken eating” scene was actually played down to mitigate the gross out factor. Do watch this movie, it is not a screed rather it has been designed to play as crime drama, which indeed it was.
