New book and documentary film makes liberals face an uncomfortable truth – America’s most prolific serial killer was an abortionist
The notorious Ted Bundy and John Wayne Gacy murdered over 30 people each.
Gary Ridgway was even more evil, killing as many as 90 women in the Seattle area.
But America’s most prolific serial killer is someone the media is making sure you never hear of.
Kermit Gosnell is serving a sentence of life without parole in a Pennsylvania prison, convicted of killing a woman and three babies.
But unlike Bundy, Gacy or Ridgway, Gosnell committed his crimes in an abortion clinic.
Not only did he kill a patient through gross negligence, nurses report that instead of performing a standard abortion, Gosnell would routinely deliver babies alive, and then kill them by cutting their spinal cord with scissors.
Based on testimony, Gosnell’s complete death toll could be in the hundreds, if not thousands.
Fearful of portraying abortion in a bad – or in this case, truthful – light, the mainstream media silenced coverage of his murder trial, meaning most Americans have never heard of Kermit Gosnell.
ABC News’ Terry Moran was the rare journalist to publicly discuss Gosnell, calling him “probably the most successful serial killer in history of the world.”
Those comments appeared only on his Twitter account. ABC News itself went out of its way to not cover the story at all.
Now a new book and a documentary film are both challenging the media blackout, and shedding light on the real story of “America’s most prolific serial killer.”
Filmmakers Ann McElhinney and Phelim McAleer, known for their expose of Al Gore, “Not Evil, Just Wrong”, are back with a new book and film titled “Gosnell: The Untold Story of America’s Most Prolific Serial Killer.”
Their work exposes Gosnell’s 30-year-long killing spree and the extent to which the media worked to cover up his crimes.
McAleer tells The Federalist radio program:
“He’d give the women drugs to make them give birth… the babies were born alive and then he would kill them by stabbing them with scissors, He’s in prison because he committed murder… his death toll goes back decades.”
Gosnell’s crimes did not go unnoticed by the medical community. He was reported to Philadelphia state authorities on numerous occasions for running a dirty, dangerous abortion clinic.
But those officials, fearful of criticism by the abortion movement, allowed him to continue his bloody work, largely unchallenged. Complaints were dismissed, ignored, or ended with a censure and fine.
He wasn’t stopped until 2011 when he was arrested for the death of Karnamaya Mongar, whom he killed in a botched abortion in 2009.
The subsequent investigation uncovered a 30-year-long killing spree that would have horrified Americans, had the media reported on it.
Nurses testified that after charging women $1,600 to $3,000 for late term abortions, Gosnell would instead give his patients drugs to induce labor. He would seat the women on a toilet, into which the baby would be delivered alive.
Gosnell would then fish the baby out of the toilet and sever his or her spine with a pair of scissors.
Investigators found at least 30 jars filled with the severed hands and feet of aborted babies.
He only avoided additional murder charges because, without birth certificates or other identifying information, accounting for his victims relied entirely on the memories of nurses.
While that is enough to calculate the number of people and babies he killed, it does not provide the evidence required to bring charges.
“Because files were falsified or removed from the facility and possibly destroyed, we cannot substantiate all of the individual cases in which charges might otherwise have resulted,” the grand jury’s report notes.
You would think something that sensational and horrifying would attract 24/7 news coverage.
But not when it comes to abortion.
When asked why her paper was not reporting on the murder trial, Washington Post reporter Sarah Kliff dismissed it as “a local crime story.”
Ironically, this was the same time her paper was giving daily front-page coverage of a local shooting in Sanford, Florida involving local resident, and now infamous, Trayvon Martin.
Kliff herself had even written a story on a New York City’s soda ban.
The Washington Post never covered Gosnell until they finally mentioned him in the twentieth paragraph of a story on Virginia abortion regulations. He was mentioned only in the context of someone spoken of by pro-life activists.
Thankfully, McElhinney and McAleer are doing their part.
“Gosnell: The Untold Story of America’s Most Prolific Serial Killer” tells the story the media didn’t.
