First, the gruesome story was ignored by the media. Then, the crowdfunding website Kickstarter refused to host a movie about it. Now, all those obstacles are in the past. Filmmakers Phelim McAleer and Ann McElhinney, along with producer Magdalena Segieda, launched a crowdfunding campaign to expose the radical late-term abortionist and convicted murderer Kermit Gosnell just a few weeks ago, yet they've already made movie history:

Gosnell, a made for TV project on the doctor who is America's most prolific serial killer, has just smashed through the $900,000 mark - overtaking the previous record holder which had raised $898,000.

The need for this film is understated. Gosnell's grotesque actions in his dirty abortion clinics would make anyone's stomach turn. He was convicted in the deaths of three babies born alive and acquitted in the death of a fourth. Shamefully, the mainstream media decided to not treat this story as headline news, perhaps because the details would taint the precious "right" to abortion. While restlessly reporting on the Republican "war on women," they missed the real war on women being waged in Gosnell's "House of Horrors."

The fact that this film has already broken funding records, however, proves that people want to hear this tragic tale. Segieda said as much in a new press release:

"This sends a message to the media and Hollywood that they need to stop ignoring stories that don't match their political beliefs. By helping Gosnell smash these records the public are making a very strong statement about their dissatisfaction with media bias."

These bold producers aren't resting until they hit the $2.1 million mark. Help them get there: Gosnell Movie.
