Most of my American readers who are pro-life will remember the horrifying case of Dr Kermit Gosnell, a serial abortionist, who was convicted in 2013 of first-degree murder and felonies various.

Actor and director Nick Searcy has an excellent article on the doctor whose medical procedures on babies shocked a nation: ‘Gosnell 2: The Exoneration’. He directed the 2018 film, Gosnell: The Trial of America’s Biggest Serial Killer.

Let’s look at Gosnell’s convictions first (emphases mine):

On May 13, 2013, Dr Kermit Gosnell was convicted in Philadelphia of 3 counts of first degree murder for snipping, with scissors, the necks of infants who had been born alive, and 21 counts of felony late-term abortion, among other charges. His unlicensed staff members were convicted of “theft by deception” for performing medical procedures — abortions — for which they were untrained and unqualified. Stephen Massof, an unlicensed medical school graduate, pleaded guilty to two counts of third degree murder for snipping the spines of babies born alive according to Dr. Gosnell’s instructions. Many other members of his staff testified, in exchange for immunity, that they had participated in countless acts of “snipping.”

Ugh! The nation was shocked.

Six years later — 2019 — and we read that New York State recently passed a law that allows abortion up to birth. That is infanticide. It will probably be done via one, if not two, injections of poison inside the baby’s torso. Any babies undergoing this will be suffering a slow 24- to 48-hour tortured death.

Infanticide is also up for consideration in a handful of other states. I will have more on this as time permits.

Kermit Gosnell would say that he accurately predicted this would happen all along, as the Townhall article states. After his conviction, he said:

I continue to feel optimistic of the eventual outcome…the vindication of what I’ve done, why I’ve done it and how [it] will become accepted within my lifetime.

He was not wrong.

Further to the New York law, anyone can participate in a late term abortion, à la Gosnell:

He was convicted of killing breathing infants that had already been born. It is now legal in New York to kill an infant that survives an abortion.

He was convicted of allowing untrained and unlicensed non-medical personnel to perform abortions. It is now legal in New York for non-physicians or any “health professionals” (undefined) to perform abortions.

He was convicted of performing at least 21 late-term abortions past the legal limit of 24 weeks. It is now legal in New York to terminate a pregnancy up until the due date. In New York, there is no longer any such thing as a “late-term” abortion.

Nick Searcy is no doubt right with this prediction:

I would bet that Gosnell is now in his prison cell preparing his appeal for when the State of [Pennsylvania] follows suit and passes their own version of New York’s law.

Searcy’s article points out the totalitarian, Communist regimes that also murdered on a massive scale. Those rulers and the authorities under them believed they alone had control over life and death. He says that Gosnell feels the same way.

Ultimately, he says, none of these people — from totalitarians, to Gosnell, to New York State legislators — believe in God, because, if they did, they would know that a child is His creation. Because of this, we should be mindful of what the future brings:

What the Left ultimately wants to acquire is the power over life and death at ANY age, and that is why they have decriminalized Kermit Gosnell.

And history shows that they will not stop there.

This came up for discussion last week on a Fox News show. The star of Searcy’s movie said that Gosnell will indeed be vindicated. Check out the bit about Oregon — insurance will cover such a murder:

Here is the powerful trailer for Searcy’s film, which premiered on October 12, 2018:

One week after it opened, The Daily Wire had a good article on the film’s trajectory.

It was a box office phenomenon during that time:

“Gosnell: The Trial of America’s Biggest Serial Killer” surpassed box office expectations upon its release last week by entering into the Top 10 grossing films with a revenue of $1,235,000 on just 668 screens.

Then, cinemas across the United States stopped showing it:

Despite the solid performance for an independent film of this sort, nearly 200 theaters have inexplicably dropped the film, including those in major cities where it was performing the strongest. Coming into its second week, “Gosnell” has dropped from 668 theaters to 480 theaters — a full 188 theater drop, 15 of which were top-performing multiplexes.

John Sullivan, the film’s marketing director and one of its producers, told The Daily Wire that it was probably because of the film’s hard-hitting content:

“It’s hard not to believe it isn’t about the content of the movie,” he added. While some of the smaller theaters may have dropped “Gosnell” to make way for “Halloween” this weekend (a major release projected at number 1), the same could not be said for multiplexes housing 20 or more theaters where the film performed in the top 10.

Sullivan and others involved in Gosnell had also received reports that these multiplexes were actively discouraging customers from seeing the film:

Conversely, the filmmakers have received varying reports of theaters actively preventing customers from buying a ticket by not advertising the film or declaring it “sold out” before capacity is reached. While some of those situations may be the result of human error, Sullivan says the apparent blackballing is too consistent to go ignored

He continued: “One report out of Nashville had people being told the movie sold out simply because they didn’t have the staff to cover the theater, and they chose our theater to do that to. Why? Too many things have stacked up and it just doesn’t smell right.”

Sullivan directed the top-grossing “2016: Obama’s America,” and while that film certainly faced some resistance, the box office numbers were too strong for theater chains to simply toss it aside.

In a public statement on Facebook, the film’s producer, Phelim McAleer, said he had received “worrying reports from across the country” regarding customers’ inability to buy tickets.

People are saying that they are going to the box office and being told that the film isn’t being shown when it is,” McAleer said. “We are being told that people are also not able to buy tickets online. Some theaters are trying to cut this down, trying to exclude people from going to see it.”

The Daily Wire article also included first-hand accounts of people attesting to the fact that they could not buy tickets — or that, when they had, tickets were cancelled and customers refunded.

I have no explanation other than to say that, when movie theatres try to prevent Americans from seeing a successful, truthful film about a brutal, unrepentant abortionist, it’s time to start questioning the moral shift that is going on in the United States today.

If there is more about the mysterious disappearance of Gosnell, because there’s sure to be a back story to it, I’ll write a follow up.
