Hollywood Censors Gosnell Movie: Producer Says Distributors Won’t Touch Tale of Abortion Horrors

Kermit Gosnell was the face of the brutality of the abortion industry. The late-term abortion practitioner routinely snipped the necks of babies in brutal live birth abortions.

Gosnell was ultimately charged with multiple counts of murder and is the first modern-day abortion practitioner to be jailed for killing unborn children. With his disgusting practice of keeping trophies in the form of bodies and body parts of aborted babies, Kermit Gosnell is the poster boy for everything that is wrong with the abortion Industry.

And in an age in which the major pro-abortion groups promote abortion with flowery language talking about women and women’s rights, Gosnell proved just how problematic abortion is for women by virtue of the fact that he killed and injured women in abortions.

Directed by veteran actor Nick Searcy Gosnell was shot in Oklahoma last year and stars Dean Cain (young Superman from Lois & Clark).

But Hollywood is not interested in a major motion picture about the abortionist. As the producer of the new Gosnell movie tells Breitbart News, major Hollywood Distributors have no interest in making sure the motion picture makes it to movie theaters for Americans to see a gruesome horror flick about abortion.

In a phone call with Breitbart News on Tuesday, producer Phelim McAleer said that a number of major studios and distributors have rejected the film, including several major streaming services.

McAleer declined to name specific distributors, citing nondisclosure agreements.

McAleer said the Gosnell film — which he produced with his wife and frequent collaborator Ann McElhinney (FrackNation), and which is directed by veteran actor Nick Searcy (Justified) and written by Andrew Klavan (True Crime) — aims to bring the horror story surrounding the case to a wider audience. The producers have also written a book about the Gosnell case, due to be released this winter.

McElhinney, who also worked with McAleer on the 2014 play Ferguson, called it “laughable” that distributors would find the Gosnell film overly controversial, and pointed to recent films concerning abortion, including 2014’s Obvious Child and last year’s Grandma (for which actress Lily Tomlin received a Golden Globe nomination) as examples of Hollywood’s depiction of the issue.

McElhinney added that Gosnell producers made a conscious decision to aim for a PG-13 rating, eschewing some of the most graphic material in an attempt to make the film as accessible as possible.

“This is continuing the media coverup — they don’t want anything that asks difficult questions about abortion,” she said in a statement.

“Gosnell has scored off the charts at test screenings. It has been overwhelmingly popular with audiences. It broke records in crowdfunding – almost 30,000 people paid for it to be made but Hollywood is ignoring it,” said Phelim McAleer, a Gosnell Movie producer in an email to LifeNews.

“Test audiences in their feedback have cried and praised the storytelling but also praised the movie Gosnell for its accessibility,” said McElhinney.

The Gosnell movie is currently in post-production and will likely be released independently since the “coverup” is hampering efforts to release and distribute it.

“This is one of the biggest crime sprees in American history,” McAleer told Brietbart. “The book and movie will ensure that the coverup is ended and the truth will be known.”

Gosnel is currently serving three life sentences in Huntington Correctional Institution in Pennsylvania after being convicted of killing several babies born alive and a female patient.

In a 30 year killing spree he is thought to have killed hundreds, perhaps thousands of babies. Gosnell would perform illegal abortions inducing live births and then stab live babies in the back of the neck with scissors.
