Gosnell, and Other Pro-Life Movies

There are several pro-life movies you may find interesting.  The most current one is Gosnell: The Trial of America’s Biggest Serial Killer (rated PG-13). 

The national media, who claim to be balanced and unbiased, really show their one-sidedness on the issue of abortion.  When a pro-life issue like Gosnell comes along, they usually ignore it.  They also find it very difficult to say the word, “pro-life.”  Yet they have no problem using the preferred word, “pro-choice,” of those who are pro-abortion like Planned Parenthood.  When the subject of abortion comes up, the media usually asks tough questions of the pro-life side; almost never do they ask tough questions of the pro-choice side.  Hollywood is usually the same. 

During Gosnell’s trial, the media for the most part ignored it.  Now that the movie is out, Facebook and NPR (National Public Radio) have refused to run paid advertising for the movie Gosnell.  Kind of shows which side they are on.

A couple of quotes by Cal Thomas and Baptist Press: 

“While not nearly as gruesome as the death camps Eisenhower saw, the film "Gosnell" forces viewers to confront what has been done to 60 million (so far) babies and women in America since abortion became legal in 1973. It's worth seeing with someone on the fence about abortion and even a pro-choice person who is honest enough to consider the counterargument affirming life at all stages.
According to the Pew Research Center, opinions on abortion between 1995 and 2017 have remained fairly stable with "57 percent say(ing) abortion should be legal in all or most cases, while 40 percent say it should be illegal in all or most cases."
"Gosnell" could move those numbers in a pro-life direction.”
-Cal Tomas

“Facebook and NPR have refused to run paid advertising for Gosnell, and crowdsourcing website Kickstarter banned Gosnell's producers from using the platform to raise money, according to media reports.”

Many theaters are refusing to show Gosnell.  You may have to do a little research to find a place to see it.  If you can, support it and thank the theater for showing it.
