Hannibal Lecter. Freddy Kreuger. Jason Voorhees. Charles Manson. Jeffrey Dahmer. Ted Bundy. Hollywood loves a homicidal monster. But what happens when an evil being exposes the monstrosities of malign government neglect and deadly ideology? Crickets.
Tinseltown couldn’t conjure a bigger nightmare than true-life Philadelphia serial killer Kermit Gosnell. He preyed on hundreds of poor minority women. He systematically executed hundreds of healthy, living, breathing, squirming, viable babies by stabbing them in their necks and severing their spinal cords with scissors and knives. This twisted murderer kept baby feet in specimen jars, which he crammed into the grisly refrigerators of his filthy “clinic.” For “research.”
A year ago this month, the monster Gosnell was convicted of murdering three babies born alive in his death factory. He also was found guilty of involuntary manslaughter in the death of one of his “patients,” 41-year-old Bhutanese refugee Karnamaya Mongar, who died of a barbarically administered drug overdose at Gosnell’s “Women’s Medical Society.”
Let me remind you that for 15 bloody years, public officials stood by and did nothing. The Pennsylvania Department of Health knew of clinic violations dating back decades, but did nothing.
The Pennsylvania Department of State was “repeatedly confronted with evidence about Gosnell,” investigators found — including the clinic’s unclean, unsterile conditions, unlicensed workers, unsupervised sedation, underage abortion patients, and over-prescribing of pain pills with high resale value on the street — “and repeatedly chose to do nothing.”
The Philadelphia Department of Public Health officials who regularly visited Gosnell’s human waste–clogged offices did nothing.
Nearby hospital officials, who treated some of the pregnant mothers who suffered grave complications from Gosnell’s butchery, did nothing.
“Women’s health” advocates at the National Abortion Federation, the leading association of abortion providers that is supposed to uphold strict health and legal standards, determined that Gosnell’s chamber of horrors was “the worst abortion clinic she had ever inspected.” But they did nothing.
Hollywood bigwigs have not lifted a finger or raised a voice for the innocent victims of these criminal enterprises. But you can. Independent filmmakers Phelim McAleer and Ann McElhinney and their crew are producing a made-for-TV movie on Gosnell, whom they rightly dub “America’s Most Prolific Serial Killer.” These trailblazers have circumvented the information and entertainment gatekeepers before with their crowd-funded smash hit FrackNation. They’re poised to upend the mainstream entertainment culture again.
But they need your help.
