According to a press release from the producers of Gosnell: The Trial of America’s Biggest Serial Killer, the New York Times has contributed to the recent media blackout of the successful independent film about the murderous abortionist.
Actor Dean Cain calls himself “pro-choice,” but that didn’t stop him starring in an upcoming film revealing the horror story of Philadelphia abortionist Kermit Gosnell. Cain stars as Detective James “Woody” Wood in Gosnell: The Trial of America's Biggest Serial Killer, which opens in as many as 750 theaters October 12. MRC Culture interviewed Cain Sept. 21 at Family Research Council’s 2018 Values Voter Summit.
After facing challenges in the media, the legal system, and Hollywood, a movie revealing the story of “America’s biggest serial killer” is set to hit theaters. On Tuesday, The Hollywood Reporter (THR) broke the news that distributor GVN Releasing will open a film about infamous Philadelphia abortionist Kermit Gosnell to as many as 750 theaters in October. According to the filmmakers, the creation and release of Gosnell: The Trial of America's Biggest Serial Killer hasn’t happened without overcoming hurdles – including in the media.
Midway through the Indiegogo campaign, the Gosnell movie raised $1 million– almost half of the $2.1 million needed to direct and produce the story of America’s “most prolific serial killer.” The project recently made headlines for becoming the most-funded movie ever on “crowdfunding” site Indigogo, with more than 10, 600 contributors.
Filmmaker Phelim McAleer with wife Ann McElhinney gave themselves a 45 day limit to raise $2.1 million – and reached $500,000 on April 9 with more than 6,500 funders. They aim to create a scripted drama based on abortionist Kermit Gosnell’s trial and grand jury report. The team turned to Indiegogo when similar crowdfunded site Kickstarter complained that, among other things, the project described babies “stabbed to death.”
Live Action, a "new media movement dedicated to ending abortion and building a culture of life," hosted a "Stop the Killing" infanticide protest in front of abortionist Cesare Santangelo’s clinic in Washington, D.C. on May 1, 2013.
At the protest, MRC’s Culture and Media Institute asked speakers about the media's coverage of infanticide, especially in connection with the Kermit Gosnell case – watch their answers below.
