The minds behind the upcoming Gosnell TV movie aren't household names like Spike Lee or James Franco. Still, Phelim McAleer and Ann McElhinney's Indiegogo campaign trumped crowdfunding efforts by those stars to become the site's biggest moneymaker to date.
The Gosnell Movie cause has raised $1.5 million from nearly 16,000 people. Compare that to the $1.4 million Lee gathered from a far smaller group of contributors--6,421 backers.
The Gosnell project, detailing the crimes committed by late term abortionist Kermit Gosnell, originally began as part of Kickstarter.com. Its management questioned the graphic nature of the project, which led to McAleer and McElhinney leaving for fellow crowdfunding site Indiegogo.
The campaign isn't over yet, though. The goal is to reach $2.1 million, and to help that along the Gosnell team is launching a billboard near the Kickstarter.com offices to highlight, as they call it, the company's hypocrisy.

My husband and I donated $500.00 last week.
For those who want to chip in:
I donated. It was very easy.
Note that they are trying to get to their target, but also show broad based support. So even if people can only give $5 or $10 to this worthy project, they should definitely do it.
I’m not really into crowdfunding, but I made this my first donation ever. It’s that important. I think it’s vital that we make the name “Kermit Gosnell” a household name.
