With 34 days left to go, the Gosnell movie raised $500,000 of the $2.1 million needed to share the story of Americas most prolific serial killer.illfully ignored by the news media and frozen out of mainstream Hollywood, the grizzly tale of Kermit Gosnells crimes will only come to life through crowdfunding.
Filmmaker Phelim McAleer with wife Ann McElhinney and Magdalena Segieda aim to raise $2.1 million in 45 days via fundraiser site Indiegogo for their Gosnell project, a scripted drama based on abortionist Kermit Gosnells 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. The Indiegogo campaign reached $500,000 on April 9 with over 6,500 funders.
gosnellmovieKermit Gosnell was convicted last May of first-degree murder of three babies though many hundreds may have med similar fates in his Philadelphia abortion mill. A mere 12 15 reporters attended the trial, in which witnesses described baby abortion survivors swimming in toilets. Not until after a public outcry as well as letters from members of the House of Representatives did all three broadcast networks report on the story.
McElhinney believes the fundraising success the Gosnell project is enjoying will cause Hollywood and the media to pay attention.
People are angry with them for ignoring the news and the truth, McElhinney stressed, and $500,000 as is such a strong message from people all over the country voting with their money for the truth.
Her husband, McAleer, called the success a huge responsibility All these thousands of people have trusted us to tell this story and emphasized that the team wont let them down.
The filmmakers werent the only ones excited. Multiple funders commented on the project via Indigogo and social media:
My previous donation of $100 was not nearly representative of what I would love to give to see this film made and distributed to as many people as possible. My latest donation of $500 is more than I am comfortable with, but what is my comfort compared to the horrors Gosnell inflicted on innocent men and women?
The reason I donated is because I have had two abortions. Once at 19 and again at 32. I do have two living children from my first marriage. The pain and guilt of knowing you have murdered your babies is unbearable. I thank Jesus for His forgiveness. I thank Him for healing my pain of what I have done. God bless you.
Bravo to you for taking on this quest. There is no more important issue than doing what the lapdog MSM should be doing. The world needs to know about this holocaust. God bless you for doing it.
I have opinions and views on abortion that Im sure are not unique, but I also believe everyone should have accurate information to base their opinions on. Having a means to understanding the viability and value of life at all points of development is crucial in the process of forming opinions.
I read the Gosnell grand jury findings on Michelle Malkins site the same day I learned I would be a gramma. He is now 2 1/2 and I thank God for him & for you. Gosnell will haunt me for all my days. Thanks for telling the story.
Kickstarters initial refusal to allow the Gosnell project recently surfaced as hypocritical in regards to other projects allowed on the site, including After Tiller, a documentary empathizing with the last four third-trimester abortionists in the United States.
That doctor TWISTED the head off of one infant, just like a bottle of 7-up.
After one “oops birth” into a toilet, the infant (soon to die) was trying to SWIM.
This doctor is on the same level as Dr. Mengele.
MEDIA IGNORED ALL OF THIS.
Joe that is your best one yet!!
I donated a little. I have a feeling there are a lot like me.
“Not until after a public outcry as well as letters from members of the House of Representatives did all three broadcast networks report on the story.”
And therein lies the rub...
I just want to cry over this every d@mn day. Feeling melancholy tonight: I lost a child to miscarriage many, many years ago and we both STILL grieve. That was the one and ONLY baby I could’ve brought into this world and I failed.
How anyone can WILLINGLY participate in infanticide is simply beyond me. And living, breathing WOMEN wear an abortion as a badge of honor?
Thanks for all you do for us here, Morgana.
“The product, abortion, is skillfully marketed and sold to the woman at the crisis time in her life. She buys the product, finds it defective and wants to return it for a refund. But, it’s too late.”
Satan feeds on the blood of those most innocent and unnamed souls. Nations that legalize abortion are sanctioning human sacrifice for Satan and his cult and we all are harmed by it, not just those who participate first hand.
It's evil and we are condemned by our ignorance of that fact, just as we are for looking the other way, just as we are for participating first hand or supporting its continued legalization.
I gave to end this horror and I hope the movie is made and its impact powerful.
May God have mercy on us all.
Blessings to you.
My DIL went through 3 miscarriages before our firstborn grandson. They now have 3 Gkids, and another son has 3. My 3rd son/wife is having another in June.
Our upcoming 39 years of marriage, with this new heritage these last 6 years, is a promise fulfilled by God from my early teens.
I’ve hated abortion since 1973 when a coworker was delighted he would save money by not sending his GF to NY for an abortion. He was a newspaper editor.
