If you’re wondering why filmmakers Phelim McAleer and Ann McElhinney, and journalist Magdalena Segieda are launching the biggest crowd-funding campaign ever attempted to try and produce Gosnell: The Movie to expose late-term abortionist and convicted murderer Kermit Gosnell, this two-minute video will explain everything.

For just a glimpse of what occurred in Kermit Gosnell’s ‘House of Horrors,’ McElhinney read a few excerpts from the case’s grand jury report, revealing two of Gosnell’s illegal third trimester abortions. She reads how Gosnell tried to pressure a young woman to abort her baby even after she changed her mind when learning the abortionist “burns” babies after they're aborted. Unlike many young women that entered his clinic, this particular mother escaped and proceeded to give birth to a beautiful baby girl. The details eventually lead McElhinney to break down in tears. Watch the powerful moment here:

Considering the troubling content of these reports and how Gosnell treated these precious babies as disposable trash, it’s no wonder McElhinney had to fight to get through them. I applaud her courage in sharing them, for these horrific stories need to be told.

Seven days remain for these filmmakers to reach their $2.1 million mark to produce this important film. If you want to help them see their efforts to fruition, it’s as easy clicking this button.
