Dana Loesch at TheBlaze TV interviewed Irish filmmaker Ann McElhinney, who’s working on a movie and a book about abortionist Kermit Gosnell, now in prison for killing seven babies after birth and allowing an overmedicated woman to die in his dirty Philadelphia clinic. The national media largely blacked out his trial in 2013. She met Dr. Gosnell in person.
“He has an answer for everything. He lives in his own little world. Every word that comes out of his mouth is a lie. He lies so easily,” she said.
“It was so chilling, Dana, I tell you it’s taken me a long time to recover. It was about a week ago now....You are really sitting in the presence of evil and you’re really aware of it.” She said “we came away from the prison, and we did not speak in the car for over an hour and a half.”
He was apparently happy and singing (recounting an old Jacques Brel tune), and considers himself an innocent martyr for the cause. McElhinney gave a similar interview in print to Kathryn Lopez at National Review Online.
Gosnell walked in. He sat opposite me and leaned forward so that he was very much in my personal space. During the interview he repeatedly touched my leg. He’d apologize but do it again and didn’t adjust his posture to give me any room to avoid these unwelcome touches.
We talked for two hours. He spoke of how he spent his time, his absolute belief in his innocence, the friends he has made, and he answered my questions about the case. He lied continuously. Writing this book I know a lot about the case now — he lied about everything and if he wasn’t lying he was concocting elaborate stories to explain away the horror of what really happened at 3801 Lancaster Ave. He is convinced he is getting out and says he will do a triathlon the year he is released. That’s why he spends so much time in the “wonderful” gym in the prison — so he will be ready. He thinks of himself as a martyr. He compares himself to his friend, George Tiller [who was murdered in 2009], who he describes as “a wonderful man, warm and gentle.”
