    Gosnell works on so many levels it’s hard to count them all. The film tackles one of the most emotional subjects in our culture – abortion – with grace and care. The screenplay packs a specific point of view but leaves the soapbox storytelling off the frame. We’re gripped by a narrative that could chase away those with weak stomachs. Even the film’s PG:13 rating is a victory of sorts given the horrors committed by the titular villain. Dr. Kermit Gosnell ran a filthy abortion clinic where cats roamed the halls and babies’ feet floated in hidden jars. The specifics...

    A group of women in Chicago say they operated a covert abortion network for years in the 1960s and early 1970s, skirting the then-federal ban on abortion by discreetly sending messages to one another about abortion services. “Pregnant? Don’t want to be? Call Jane,” read a 1969 newspaper advertisement from the “Jane Collective,” The New York Times reported Sunday. Formerly known as the Abortion Counseling Service of Women’s Liberation, the Jane Collective helped women have abortions before Roe V. Wade made it legal in 1973, according to TheNYT. Roe v. Wade gave women the permission to abort until the point...

    Voters in Alabama, West Virginia and Oregon will cast their ballots in November against or in support of bills amending their state’s abortion laws. Alabama’s proposed constitutional amendment, “Statewide Amendment 2,” will ask voters to affirm that “the constitution of this state does not protect the right to abortion or require the funding of abortion.” It would also “recognize and support the sanctity of unborn life and the rights of unborn children.” “The real aim is to ban abortion, but that’s not what you see in the language. This is just very broad. We have seen some split among conservatives...

    Indiana Attorney General Curtis Hill made a call to action Monday for the U.S. Supreme Court to take on a critical pro-life case. Hill said he wants the Supreme Court to rule on a lawsuit about a 2016 pro-life law that bans abortions performed because of the unborn child’s race, gender or disability, such as Down syndrome. It also requires medical facilities to bury or cremate fetal remains. According to Indiana Public Media, Hill said the fetal characteristic abortion ban guards against discrimination. He also argued the state has the right to require fetal remains to be treated with dignity....

    Planned Parenthood and the ACLU slammed Indiana leaders Monday for striving to protect unborn babies with Down syndrome from discrimination. Indiana Attorney General Curtis Hill asked the U.S. Supreme Court to hear his appeal and uphold a 2016 state law that prohibits discriminatory abortions based on an unborn baby’s disability, gender or race. Vice President Mike Pence, who was Indiana’s governor at the time, signed the law. Planned Parenthood and the ACLU challenged the law in court, and on Monday, criticized the state for defending it, The Times reports. “[The law] ignores long-settled precedent from the Supreme Court that a...

    A Sunday feature from the BBC highlighted a woman with a macabre career: abortion doula. The BBC interviewed Vicki Bloom, a doula who has reassured women through abortions—more than 2,000 of them. Typically, doulas aid women as they undergo the childbirth process, but in Bloom’s case, she helps women as they abort their children. “I will stand up by their head and be looking into that person’s eyes, ready for whatever they need, while the doctor is doing the procedure,” Bloom said. Some of the things that abortion doulas do involve talking with the women about their lives, holding their...

    In true, bizarre New York fashion, a bookstore in Brooklyn is hosting a pro-abortion “hex ritual” to curse U.S. Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh this Saturday. Newsweek reports Catland Books, a “metaphysical boutique and occult bookshop,” is hosting a “Ritual to Hex Brett Kavanaugh.” Dakota Bracciale, co-owner of the bookshop and event organizer, claims witches at the event will “make Kavanaugh suffer.” Invitations to the event have been sent out via Eventbrite. The event, which is scheduled for Oct. 20, will include effigies, coffin nails, graveyard dirt and a spell, according to the report. The ritual description says that Kavanaugh...

    A pro-life advocate drew a lot of eyes to his protest Sunday during a football game between the Dallas Cowboys and Jacksonville Jaguars. Journalists covering the game captured photos and videos of the man as he shouted “Vote Republican” and “Stop abortion” from the platform at the base of the stadium stands, just before the game. The man is not named in reports. The man also held a sign, which read: “Before I formed you in the womb, I knew you. – God,” “Stop abortion” and “Vote Republican.” A Fort Worth Star-Telegram columnist said the man began his protest right...

Semi-conscious women scheduled for abortions were moaning in the waiting room or the recovery room, where they sat on dirty recliners covered with blood-stained blankets.” —what FBI and Pennsylvania Department of Health officials stated they saw upon raiding the abortion clinic of Dr. Kermit Gosnell on Feb. 18, 2010 “Gosnell: The Trial of America’s Biggest Serial Killer”...

    Beyond party and ideology, let’s meet the challenge to care for women and children. There’s a scene in the new movie Gosnell: The Trial of America’s Biggest Serial Killer that should launch candid conversations around the country. Alexis McGuire (played by Sarah Jane Morris), the lead prosecutor in the case against the Philadelphia abortion-clinic doctor Kermit Gosnell, is depicted at home with her husband, distraught at the reality of the horror she’s had to face in the investigation. She explains: Mother’s Day 1972. Gosnell and this psychologist bussed in 15 pregnant women from Chicago. Second trimester. They were doing this...

    ... As Catholic Christians, we are called to value life "in all its stages." This means we are also called to value that which sustains life, which includes things like health care, food and the environment, that is, creation. In fact, if we profess to be pro-life, we must necessarily be pro-creation. The U.S. bishops, in their document "Forming Consciences for Faithful Citizenship," explain that the "culture of life begins with the preeminent obligation to protect innocent life from direct attack and extends to defending life whenever it is threatened or diminished." Clearly, this applies to environmental degradation that directly...

CDespite the more limited release, Gosnell outperformed A Simple Favor, The Nun, and the blockbuster film Crazy Rich Asians. Every other movie except for one that appeared higher in the weekend top 10 list was shown to Americans in thousands of theaters....

    Andrew Cuomo has some nerve.The New York governor, who two years ago intoned that New Yorkers with pro-life and conservative values weren't "welcome" in the state, is suddenly acting as if he's their most ardent advocate.  At Thursday night's Fox Business debate, GOP presidential candidate Ted Cruz (R-TX) defined New York values as "socially liberal, pro-abortion, pro-gay marriage,  and focus around money and the media." Cuomo insisted Cruz should "apologize" for his comments. "I'm always open to give him an education on what New York values are all about," Cuomo said on NY1. "And if he had any class, he would apologize to the people of New...

    New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo believes that pro-life activists, along with anti-gay activists and supporters of the Second Amendment, are not welcome in his state. During a radio interview on Friday, Cuomo pointed out that Republicans were in the midst of a schism, where conservatives worked against moderate Republicans. "Their problem is not me and the Democrats; their problem is themselves," he said. "Who are they? Are they these extreme conservatives who are right-to-life, pro-assault-weapon, anti-gay? Is that who they are? Because if that's who they are and they're the extreme conservatives, they have no place in the state of...

    New York Governor Andrew Cuomo made news last week when during a radio interview he said “extreme conservatives” have “no place” in the Empire State. Who are these people? Among others, he said, those who are “right to life” or “anti-gay.”Later he tried to walk back this naked and nasty bit of intolerance, reassuring us that those who are “anti-choice” (one presumes he got a tongue-lashing from NARAL for saying “right to life” the first time) could stay in New York after all. But that bell, as the saying goes, can’t be un-rung.Catholics, of course, are “right to life”...

    You need to go see the new movie "Gosnell: The Trial of America's Biggest Serial Killer," starring actor Dean Cain in the leading role. It's in theaters nationwide this Friday. And while you're at it, take several friends with you. But if you've never heard about this film, I can't say I blame you. You're not alone. Not only should you go see it if you care about the plight of unborn children and their mothers, but a purchase of this particular movie ticket is a rebuke to the disgraceful behavior of the American mainstream press a few years ago....

    Are movies an expression of America’s cultural values, or are our values influenced by what we see on the big screen? There’s a case to be made for both arguments, and the answer may be that it's a giant circle; what we see influences what we believe, and what we create and portray is influenced by our evolving beliefs. This is certainly the way it has played out over the last 50 years in the debate over abortion rights. The landmark 1973 Supreme Court decision in Roe v. Wade, which affirmed women's legal rights to abortion, brings the national conversation...

    I just saw Gosnell in the theater last night, and it is very well done. It is a huge eye-opener on the abortion industry. The acting was surprisingly good, especially the actor for dr. Gosnell. He did an excellent job at capturing the darkness and creepiness of this killer. When I last checked, this movie had 97% approval ratings from viewers and surprisingly over 60% from Critics on Rotten Tomatoes. Much Financial Risk was taken to put together this anti-abortion movie. Please take time to see it!

    The crimes of abortionist and serial killer Kermit Gosnell are, by now, well known. But another abortionist is currently under investigation by the FBI: Douglas Karpen, who has come to be known as the “Texas Gosnell.” In 2011, Karpen appeared before the Texas Medical Board following multiple complaints, but they were all dismissed. In 2013, however, the voices against him grew louder as staffers from his abortion facility began to come forward, accusing him of committing grisly late-term abortions, after which babies were sometimes born alive. Instead of getting them medical attention, as federal law requires, Karpen would instead —...
