A major announcement today from the ‘Gosnell Movie‘ Indiegogo campaign that the crowdfunding goal has been exceeded and the film about the abortion ‘hours of horrors’ in Philadelphia will be produced. If you recall, the team behind other such groundbreaking documentaries, including FRACKNATION, was apparently censored from the crowdfunding site Kickstarter when they first set out to raise money for this worthwhile project. With that controversy long gone, the crew can now get to work telling the story of convicted murderer Dr. Kermit Gosnell and try to bring some remembrance and spotlight to his many victims.
LifeNews reports the exciting news:
They did it. The producers of the Gosnell movie have raised the $2.1 million they needed to make the Hollywood-style film that will tell the story of the gruesome abortion practitioner.
The campaign reached its goal four days ahead of schedule thanks to a unified effort by pro-life advocates and almost 24,000 people who agreed to fund the movie. Proving its grassroots appeal, most of the 23,471 donors contributed $100 or less while only 72 people claimed the perks from donating over $1,000.

He is the abortion practitioner who killed babies in live-birth abortions that were more akin to infanticide than abortion. The media virtually ignored Kermit Gosnell until the pro-life movement launched a concerned effort to call them out on their bias during the early stages of his trial for murder.
Having previously smashed fundraising records around the $900,000 mark, the news that the goal has been broken is a testament to how many people want this story to be told on a broader level.
The sheer number of donors, over 23,000 at this point, is a very high number for crowdfunding projects. That number is only expected to grow in these final days as the funding is open until 11:59pm PT on May 12. It is, however, very doubtful that this story will make it onto the pages of the Washington Post or any other major news outlet considering there was little interest in covering this case during the trial itself despite the gruesome and heinous nature of the crimes committed against babies and women.
