Pennsylvania lifer, Kermit Gosnell now subject of made-for-TV movie

Described as a “real-life Hannibal Lecter,” Pennsylvania lifer, Kermit Gosnell now subject of made-for-TV movie

Ultimate Con: Thousands of babies murdered, abortionist receives life, American press silent

The case of Kermit (Defrocked) Gosnell, a Philadelphia abortion doctor who was convicted in May 2013 of the murder of three newborn babies as well as manslaughter of a woman patient, has been slated for the subject of a made-for-television movie by Irish director Phelim McAleer. The film will be based upon the Gosnell trial transcripts, according to a story published in the Belfast Telegraph, an Irish newspaper. In the Irish report, Mr. McAleer decried the lack of news coverage by the American press. This would explain the absence of American press sources cited in this article.

This is a direct quote from the Belfast Telegraph article about the Gosnell case, which bears repeating:

“Mr McAleer said: “Americans have a huge appetite for films about serial killers. There have been four movies about Ted Bundy, five about the Zodiac killer, three about John Wayne Gacy and one about Jodie Arias. Kermit Gosnell killed more than them all put together.

“He’s a fascinating monster – a hoarder, mad man and megalomaniac. He’s a black man who is racist against blacks and Hispanics. He is a real-life Hannibal Lecter and we are going to tell the story. This will be the film that Hollywood and the liberal media don’t want people to see.”

    Bob and Kl2008a, even though you are both gentlemen, you have made very cogent observations (no extra charge for the pun.)

  2. Bob Walsh says:

    In modern America even coverage of serial killers must be PC to be “popular.”

  3. kl2008a says:

    Is it just me, or do others find it a coincidence that those that are/were for this slimeball are the same ones AGAINST the State’s invoking the death penalty? I’m curious to know how many of HIS murders were paid for by the Govt through OUR tax dollars?

    • Gadfly says:


      The true irony of this story is that legal abortions were supposed to help women, especially those who were the poorest and minorities. The Gosnell case has proven to be the opposite of the intent of the law and, in that regard, caused irreparable damage. The government dropped the ball in so many areas in this case, and the press turned a blind eye because of its ultra-left bias concerning the subject of abortion.

      The point is, or at the very least should be, if abortions are legal, and they clearly are, why are illegal abortions being performed in a government-sanctioned and legal abortion clinic? So much for investigative journalism.
