  • Push on to make a movie about Kermit Gosnell

    Today we are launching the biggest ever crowd funding campaign to make a TV movie about the serial killer, abortionist Dr. Kermit Gosnell.

    Dr. Kermit Gosnell is the most prolific serial killer in American History, but almost no one knows who he is.

    The Grand Jury investigating Kermit Gosnell's horrific crimes said this:
    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. (Report of the Grand Jury)


    Gosnell is serving several life sentences but the media basically ignored his crimes and his trial. They ignored the facts that emerged from the trial, like the fact that the babies he murdered suffered terribly. Here is what a neonatologist told the Grand Jury:
    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. (Report of the Grand Jury)

    The mainstream media or Hollywood don't think this is a story. Even though Gosnell killed more people than Gary Ridgeway, John Wayne Gacey, The Zodiac Killer and Ted Bundy combined. In a 30 year killing spree, it is thought he killed 1000s of babies. And that wasn't a national story?





    They are right: the media ignored this case in droves. There were a couple of brief mentions, but certainly nothing like the wall-to-wall coverage of other events. They cite the Arias trial happening at the same time, and that's a good example. Same goes with the Casey Anthony trial and the ludicrous "smell experts" and such that typified that case. But this guy, who brutally murdered hundreds, if not thousands, of infants in a painful and grotesque fashion, got nothing remotely like the same treatment.

    Frankly, I don't know if I could put myself through watching this movie. In a lot of ways, it would be more painful to watch than Schindler's List.
    It's been ten years since that lonely day I left you
    In the morning rain, smoking gun in hand
    Ten lonely years but how my heart, it still remembers
    Pray for me, momma, I'm a gypsy now

    I have to say that I found it nausiating how much the media refused to report on it (not so much a cover up, but ignoring it IMO).

    I can tell people about it, but I don't think I can bring myself to watch.

        So dinner and a movie is out of the question?

          Wow.


          I don't think it would be a movie for me but it will bring attention to what happened.

          I was adopted shortly after birth. So was my sister and several friends of mine. That was before abortion was so cool.

            I'm conflicted about it. It's an important idea, and people should see it, in the same way that they should see Schindler's List, even though it's painful to watch. At the same time, I would be hard-pressed to spend money to go spend money at the theater to go watch something that is hard to watch.

            Just out of curiosity, do you mean a biological sister or do you mean a sister in the adopted sense?

              My parents adopted two children and we were not biological siblings. Then my mom went on to help other mothers that were interested in adoption that could not have children.

              I still remember my mother asking me if I wanted a brother or a sister, and I said sister.

              In fact she showed up in Las Vegas today with my oldest nephew so we could all have dinner with my mom. My sister is staying at my mom's apartment, my nephew, who just turned 21 is staying at the Mirage. I told him about Margaretville at the Flamingo which is very close to where he is staying.

              There is also a member from another political board that is visiting Vegas right now from Texas.

              I should simply quit my job and start a concierge service. Moving to Nevada made me semi-retired and I'm ready for the next step.
