The Gosnell movie opens to controversy and some critics

The movie positions a criminal as typical of abortion providers, but fails to note that he could only thrive when abortion access was restricted.

Some claim that Facebook is blocking commercials for the pro-life movie, and major movie critics are unaware of it.

It has been more than four years since more than $ 2 million was raised through crowdfunding for the making of a Kermit Gosnell film, and today this film finally enters cinemas. But you may not know it.

We looked up and down for Gosnell’s comments: The trial of America’s biggest serial killer among the usual suspects, but critics of Gosnell film critics are rare. Almost nonexistent, actually.

On Friday morning, the only Gosnell movie review we found using Google and the Nexis newspaper database is this one in the Los Angeles Times.

Film critic Michael Rechtshaffen pointed out that Gosnell’s film could “never be confused with liberal bias,” later using terms such as “sneaky” and “sensationalist”.

The film Gosnell is, of course, an exploration of the crimes of the famous Philadelphia doctor Kermit Gosnell, who performed abortions at a medical clinic in West Philadelphia. (In search of source material, the producers of the film Gosnell opted for this history of longtime cream Philadelphia contributor to Steve Volk magazine in 2014.)

In 2013, Gosnell was convicted of first-degree murder for killing three babies during a botched abortion procedure. He was also found guilty of illegal abortions. Prosecutors said he killed children by cutting their spine with scissors.

Here is a trailer of the movie Gosnell:

“What is smell ?” Asks Philly Inspector Dean Cain’s character as he enters Gosnell’s clinic for a search – a search that does not lack body parts and other The role of Gosnell is played by Earl Billings, who is best known for playing Rob in the 1970s in the sitcom “What’s Happening !!”

Outside the mainstream media, the film Gosnell is extensively covered.

Conservative columnist Michelle Malkin calls it “the most important film we have ever heard of”. According to sources, Facebook has refused to broadcast commercials for the film Gosnell. In a recent interview, the filmmakers said they could not run their ads on NPR either.

Naturally, both sides of the abortion debate are fighting over the distribution of the film, pro-life activists lobbying the theaters for Gosnell cinema and advocates of free choice lobbying theaters for that they do not do it.

“This film deserves to be seen by everyone,” wrote Marjorie Dannenfelser, coalition president Donald J. Trump For President and president of the pro-life organization The Susan B Anthony List, in an e-mail to the fans. earlier this week. “But as they have shown, the mainstream media have no desire to tell the truth about Gosnell and his crimes. They do not want people to know the truth about abortion and they do not want people to know the truth about what’s going on behind the closed doors of abortion clinics. ”

The availability of the film, perhaps unsurprisingly, changes with geography. It’s quite easy to see the movie Gosnell if you live in places like Texas or Alabama, when there is literally only one movie screen in Manhattan that plays the movie.

Here in Philadelphia, the only theater in the city limits to watch Gosnell is Franklin Mills. He is also featured in Media, Bensalem, Voorhees, Cherry Hill, Plymouth Meeting and Oaks.
