To say that Kermit Gosnell is a monster is a serious understatement. In the span of his thirty-year career as an abortion doctor, Gosnell is believed to have murdered thousands of babies in the womb, and out. Yet, the media has quietly swept Gosnell’s story under the rug. Gosnell kept severed feet of late-term babies in display jars; killed newborns with scissors by snipping the backs of their necks; kept human remains in the refrigerators next to lunches of his employees; joked about killing “viable babies”; kept his patients bleeding and writhing in pain for hours, and affording white women cleaner waiting room and medical equipment than women of color. It is believed the babies he murdered fought for their lives, and suffered from extreme pain.
Here are reports from the Grand Jury: “This case is about a doctor who killed babies … What we mean is that he regularly and illegally delivered live, viable, babies in the third trimester of pregnancy – and then murdered these newborns by severing their spinal cords with scissors …. Over the years, many people came to know that something was going on here. But no one put a stop to it. The neonatologist testified… If a baby moves, it is alive. Equally troubling, it feels a “tremendous amount of pain” when its spinal cord is severed. So, the fact that Baby Boy A. continued to move after his spinal cord was cut with scissors means that he did not die instantly. Maybe the cord was not completely severed. In any case, his few moments of life were spent in excruciating pain.”
Knowing the grisly, gruesome details about the murders he committed makes me sick to my stomach. It makes me weep for the babies who suffered at his hand, but also those who are murdered by abortion doctors every day.
Why then, did the mainstream media and Hollywood completely ignore Gosnell’s case? It is due to one taboo subject; abortion. Abortion is a very touchy subject that the media chooses to ignore. The abortion industry is more gruesome and horrific than people can even begin to imagine. While Gosnell’s case is horrific beyond belief, such practices happen every day. Children are brutally murdered for merely being an “inconvenience” to the mother. It has been proven that babies in the womb (not to mention out of the womb) suffer from excruciating pain during an abortion. Women’s lives are put in danger from the abortion procedure. The utensils and the rooms where the murders are preformed, as well as the waiting rooms, are generally fifthly, which puts the women at risk, as well.
If a killer takes a gun into a school and murders several children, it makes national news and remains in the headlines for months. Yet, thousands of babies are murdered in and out of the womb via abortion daily and it means nothing to the mainstream media. How is there a difference? A child who is murdered…whether in the womb, just delivered, or at the age of six…is horrific. Abortion is celebrated and encouraged as a “right” of women to do with their bodies what they will. However, we have a God-given, Constitutionally-protected right to LIFE; and that life begins at the moment of conception.
There is one brave person who is willing to tell Gosnell’s horror story, and he is independent filmmaker Phelim McAleer, writer and producer of the documentary, “FrackNation.” McAleer says he will not only explore Gosnell’s actions, in which he calls Kermit Gosnell “America’s biggest serial killer”, but will also tackle what he says is the media inattention that allowed Gosnell to continue until his arrest in 2011. Phelim’s film project is to be produced by his Hat Tip Productions as a television movie that he will pitch to various cable TV channels. He is actively attempting to raise $2.1 million at IndieGoGo for the financing of the film. If he is successful, his would be the biggest crowdfunding film or TV campaign ever at IndieGoGo.
Phelim McAleer says that “Many in the media are uncomfortable with any story that reflects badly on abortion.” McAleer also states that Hollywood, too, is biased against the story. He points out that there have been multiple movies made about serial killers such as Ted Bundy, John Wayne Gacy, Jeffrey Dahmer and the Zodiac Killer. You would not think that Hollywood, obsessed with murder and intrigue, would ignore such a story. I tip my hat to Phelim McAleer for being brave enough to tackle this story. It is vital to draw attention to the horrors of abortion; the lives of thousands of current and future babies (and their mommies) depend upon it.
