Gosnell Book Shoots to No. 3 on Amazon Best Seller List Ahead of Pro-Life March; Ignored By Media

Filmmakers Ann McElhinney and Phelim McAleer (“FrackNation,” “Not Evil Just Wrong”) have made a feature documentary about abortion butcher Kermit Gosnell (starring Dean Cain of “Superman” fame). but they can’t find a movie company to distribute it.

And this week, they released their book, Gosnell: The Untold Story of America’s Most Prolific Serial Killer, and it immediately shot up to the no. 3 spot on Amazon under “Best Sellers” and no. 1 among “Hot New Releases.”

No one outside of the conservative media is talking about it — which is not particularly surprising since the MSM didn’t want to talk about the villainous abortion butcher when he was arrested in January of 2011, nor later when he was tried in April of 2014, either. “It’s a local story,” was the mantra members of the MSM repeated to justify their studied disinterest in the case.

Gosnell is the late-term abortionist who ran a filthy and squalid abortion clinic in Philadelphia for over thirty years — from 1979 to January of 2011 — where fully developed babies were born alive and slaughtered every day in what McElhinney has called “America’s Holocaust.”

He is now serving life in prison, but how did he get away with it for so long?

When the grand jury indicted Gosnell in 2011, it wrote: “This case is about a doctor who killed babies … What we mean is that he regularly and illegally delivered live, viable babies in the third trimester of pregnancy—and then murdered these newborns by severing their spinal cords with scissors. … Over the years, many people came to know that something was going on here. But no one put a stop to it.”

“Words really fail to describe what Kermit Gosnell did,” said McElhinney in an interview with Steven Crowder in April of 2015. “The only comparison that works for me at all is Auschwitz. It’s the only thing —  the Holocaust is all I can compare it to.”

She added, “Somebody once asked, where was God in Auschwitz, and a rabbi said, ‘it’s the wrong question. The question is, where was humanity?'” She shook her head in disgust. “All of the people who knew what was going on — doctors, nurses, people in beautiful offices in Harrisburg — unbelievable numbers of people knew, and did nothing. And you have to ask yourself — where was humanity?”

McElhinney tried to describe the horrific crimes Gosnell and his staff participated in every day. One of the other “doctors” who worked at the clinic had testified in court that Gosnell “ran around with scissors.” She continued, “He ran because there were just so many of them — so many of these fetuses that were alive — these babies who were alive — and he ran with with scissors” [to do his grisly work]. “He said the blood flowed down the walls.”

“Nothing anyone has ever seen in a horror movie can compare,” McElhinney said.

This week on Fox News’ The O’Reilly Factor, McElhinney talked about the difficulty she and McAleer are having getting a movie company to distribute their film.

“We’ve been to all the big ones,” she told O’Reilly. “Lots of them have said, ‘great movie — my God this is an extraordinary story. Not for us — too controversial.'” She added, “These are the same people who produced a road trip movie with Lily Tomlin collecting money for her granddaughter’s abortion.”

“The movie is done,” McElhinney said. “We just need to get it out there independently.”
