The Point: The Gosnell Movie is Coming to Theaters


John Stonestreet

Evil hates the light—and the limelight.

Back in 2013, a Philadelphia court put infamous abortionist Kermit Gosnell behind bars for life for failing to care for women under his cares, and for killing infants born alive in his abortion clinic, a place described as a “house of horrors.”

A year later, a group of filmmakers shot a documentary about Gosnell’s story. For years, no Hollywood distributor would touch it. As producer Ann McElhinney explained back in 2016, the entertainment industry “doesn’t want anything that asks difficult questions about abortion.”

Thankfully, the determined producers managed to raise enough money to distribute the film independently. “Gosnell: The Trial of America’s Biggest Serial Killer” will hit over 700 U.S. theaters in October. The movie’s release is victory in the battle for life, this time shining light on evil that for too long has been hidden in darkness. Let’s pray it exposes the whole industry of death, not just Gosnell’s “house of horrors.”
