If you’re fas­ci­nated by true-​crime sto­ries, com­plete with details on every­thing from who­dunit to how the case was made in court, you’ll want to see the Gos­nell movie. Ditto if you like good act­ing and spend­ing your time with cin­e­matic char­ac­ters who draw you into the story as though they’re your neigh­bors. Still more dit­tos if you want to see what a crowd­fund­ing cam­paign can achieve in the hands of peo­ple who know what they’re doing.

Most of all, you’ll want to see Gos­nell — or see it again — if you care about jus­tice for women and chil­dren whose deaths came at the hands of an abor­tion­ist who almost escaped jus­tice. With­out resort­ing to gore or melo­drama, the film tells a chal­leng­ing story and tells it well.

Gos­nell is com­ing out on DVD on Feb­ru­ary 5th. Pre­orders are avail­able now. It will soon be avail­able on-​demand.

In brief, Ker­mit Gos­nell finally got his come­up­pance after years of being pro­tected by Penn­syl­va­nia author­i­ties who put abor­tion rights ahead of women’s health. Gos­nell ran a filthy abor­tion facil­ity where women suf­fered need­lessly, and he killed chil­dren who sur­vived attempted abor­tion. His crimes were dis­cov­ered by acci­dent when his facil­ity was raided as part of an inves­ti­ga­tion into pre­scrip­tion drug abuse. That’s where the movie begins: the drug raid, when police dis­cov­ered hor­rors they hadn’t come look­ing for.

Gos­nell, for­merly a doc­tor, is serv­ing a life sen­tence in prison. He con­tin­ues to main­tain that he did noth­ing wrong. He’s count­ing on peo­ple for­get­ting what he did, what a grand jury reported, and what pros­e­cu­tors proved in court.

Watch Gos­nell not only for its value as a chal­leng­ing and inspir­ing film. Watch it so that Ker­mit Gosnell’s vic­tims will be remembered.

The pro­duc­ers of the film had quite a time get­ting it financed and made and dis­trib­uted. Some­thing about the topic prompted resis­tance in cer­tain cir­cles. Crowd­fund­ing and per­sis­tence won the day. The result is a movie I recommend.

Here’s my com­plete review of Gos­nell, writ­ten when the movie was released in theaters.

If you’re fascinated by true-crime stories, complete with details on everything from whodunit to how the case was made in court, you’ll want to see the Gosnell movie. Ditto if you like good acting and spending your time with cinematic characters who draw you into the story as though they’re your neighbors. Still more dittos if you want to see what a crowdfunding campaign can achieve in the hands of people who know what they’re doing.

Most of all, you’ll want to see Gosnell – or see it again – if you care about justice for women and children whose deaths came at the hands of an abortionist who almost escaped justice. Without resorting to gore or melodrama, the film tells a challenging story and tells it well.

In brief, Kermit Gosnell finally got his comeuppance after years of being protected by Pennsylvania authorities who put abortion rights ahead of women’s health. Gosnell ran a filthy abortion facility where women suffered needlessly, and he killed children who survived attempted abortion. His crimes were discovered by accident when his facility was raided as part of an investigation into prescription drug abuse. That’s where the movie begins: the drug raid, when police discovered horrors they hadn’t come looking for.

Gosnell, formerly a doctor, is serving a life sentence in prison. He continues to maintain that he did nothing wrong. He’s counting on people forgetting what he did, what a grand jury reported, and what prosecutors proved in court.
