"Gosnell: The Trial of America's Biggest Serial Killer" debuts in theaters nationwide on Oct. 12. I do believe this groundbreaking film by indie producers Phelim McAleer and Ann McElhinney is the most important movie in America right now — a true-life saga of good vs. evil, deadly medical malpractice, systemic government malfeasance and cultural apathy toward the most vulnerable members of our society.
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.
—Pro-abortion censors at crowdsourcing giant Kickstarter banned McAleer and McElhinney from raising money for the project — leading small donors across the country to help conduct the largest-ever crowdfunded movie on Indiegogo. (Full disclosure: I put my money where my principles are and donated three times, in addition to using my social media platforms to lend a hand.)
—Taxpayer-supported National Public Radio refused to run sponsored ads describing 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.
What are they trying to hide?
Philadelphia abortion practitioner Kermit Gosnell is behind bars, serving three consecutive life sentences for a murderous crime spree that places him in the same infamous pantheon of homicidal maniacs as Charles Manson, Jeffrey Dahmer and Ted Bundy. But because his victims were hundreds of poor minority women and their children, Hollywood, women's groups and the media — who usually never hesitate to sensationalize criminal masterminds — are AWOL.
