The Five, Nick Searcy, Kevin Sorbo, And The Gosnell Movie

Today on The Five, the hosts covered the story of the new movie about abortion doctor Kermit Gosnell, which is currently raising money for production through crowd-sourcing. They address the background of the film, as well as the importance of telling the story, and the involvement of big names like Nick Searcy and Kevin Sorbo.

Greg Gutfeld makes one of the best points of the segment.

“The thing is, I mean, it is a brutal topic. But so is Idi Amin, so is Rwanda, so is the holocaust. Hollywood has made movies that involved all of those topics. The reason why they don’t do this one is not because the evil is so grotesque. It’s that it’s too close to a moral choice they’ve made. That’s what it’s about. It’s not that like, ah it’s so hard to do something on this man who butchered babies. It’s because it’s too close to the pro-choice mindset.”

The hosts also point out the involvement of big name celebrities like Nick Searcy and Kevin Sorbo, who have put their large microphones to work in supporting the film.

Here is Searcy (via Breitbart):

“[Gosnell] killed hundreds of babies, perhaps thousands,” Searcy says. “In his clinic, babies were born breathing, moving, crying and then he would stab them to death, and he did it again and again and again.”

The reason why many Americans don’t know the horrifying details of Gosnell’s case is simple, as Searcy sees it: “The details are too damaging to certain political agendas.” Journalists refused to cover it in proportion to its obvious news value, something the film hopes to correct.

“It will show the media that Americans want the truth about Gosnell to be discovered,” he says.

This is not the first time Searcy has put his name on the line and stood for conservative values in the face of overwhelming liberal groupthink in Hollywood. He is both famous and infamous on Twitter for advocating conservative beliefs without fear. Searcy stands by his beliefs and convictions, and supporting this film is just one more instance of him acting on those beliefs, of not just saying, but doing.

Kevin Sorbo, too, has been outspoken about his values and beliefs. Here he is talking about the Gosnell movie:

Sorbo and his wife are compelling, honest, direct, and moving in their support, and a terrific example of using a large public voice to do good and support one’s values. The Right Scoop will have more on Kevin Sorbo and his activism and witnessing in the coming days.

Tonight at RedState, the producers released a new video, in which Ann McElhinney reads aloud from the grand jury transcript of the Gosnell case. It is a powerful, disturbing video that illustrates just what exactly is at stake in the making of this film.

To make this movie and tell this important story, producers Ann McElhinney and Phelim McAleer are raising money in one of the largest crowd-funding projects ever undertaken. If you would like to contribute and make sure this film is made, please visit www.gosnellmovie.com.

Ann McElhinney, Phelim McAleer, Nick Searcy, and Kevin Sorbo are out there setting the example. Donating to this film is a chance for each of us to do the same.

    And the present POTUS of these United States would like to make it legal.

    • DeadMessenger

      Considering that homosexuals don’t typically reproduce by normal means, you can kind of see why. But I can’t see why black voters would elect and re-elect this baby murderer, considering his IL senatorial position. (One of the few positions he had, other than “present.”)

  • nobs

    Greg Gutfeld said it well. Hollywood isn’t making the move because it is too close to the choice they have made to support abortion. I imagine Gosnell was desensitized over time by the knowledge that no matter how far along the babies were he was taking a human life.

    • Patriot077

      He supposedly felt he was doing public service; of course he violated the Hippocratic Oath each and every time. But he is a true sociopath. No doubt in my mind at least, and the findings of the Grand Jury investigation are available on the website of the Philly D.A. and elsewhere. It’s worth a read if you can stomach it; I have not been able to turn many pages myself.

      • tinlizzieowner

        “He supposedly felt he was doing public service”.
        If he was White, he would have been labeled a ‘Ni**er Killer’ and probably assassinated (by the Black Panthers) by now.

        • DeadMessenger

          Actually, there’s that dude down in TX, white abortionist…I can’t remember his name, but am too lazy to Google…but the black community isn’t up in arms, and you’d think they would be. Which leads to my comment above that baby murdering transcends race. Sadly.

        • Patriot077

          You could be right, TLO, but George Tiller was white and the pro abortion crowd loved him and mourned his death. I think they love abortion more than their usual race politics.
          I don’t think they wanted to rock the boat and destroy that clinic – even the deaths of poor, minority women didn’t stir them.

          • tinlizzieowner

            ‘Tiller The Baby Killer’. You notice, he had a name.
            Could I say ‘Rot In Hell Gosnell’, without being called ‘a racist’? 😉 😉

            • Patriot077

              probably not. But that could be because they love their abortions (and the poor and downtrodden too, donchaknow?) and will protect it at all costs. How could it be otherwise when you read the Gosnell atrocities and see the photos evidencing same. They haunt me, I tell ya.

  • I am glad Sorbo is doing faith based movies now. They are getting better.

    • DeadMessenger

      Oh yeah. Saw “God’s Not Dead” – loved it!

  • Patriot077

    Glad to see this onTRS. So far they have collected almost $900k but have only 3 more weeks to get another $1.2m. I hope everyone will dig deep and share with their friends. Every dollar helps – and you really can donate just one dollar if that’s what you can afford to give. The only way this movie will be made is if people like us fund it. The producers are awesome and will do justice for all the babies who could have lived but for Gosnell and others like him. There are more out there in nearly every state.
    This is where we end up when “justices” are activists first and arrogant enough to feel that they are more powerful than the word of God.

  • tinlizzieowner

    If Gosnell was ‘White’, this movie would have already been made. :-{
    Where’s CORE? Where’s the NAACP? Where’s Oprah? Look at all the potential welfare mother Democrat voters this SOB killed? Hell, that one young girl the ‘media’ interviewed had EIGHT friggin abortions!

    • DeadMessenger

      Though I appreciate the sentiment…I feel your outrage, too…but I think the baby murdering agenda transcends even (gasp!) racism. I know, I know, it’s unbelievable.

      • tinlizzieowner

        You’re 100% correct but, …….. The media exposure doesn’t and that’s what we are talking about here. 😉

  • spin43

    Dexter would never consider killing innocent babies.

  • Patriot077

    Scoop, I just noticed the link to the gosnellmovie funding site has a typo. Thank you for posting – I think Gutfield is right on.

  • Mac in Texas

    Are we so desensitized over 60,000,000 million aborted innocent babies for decades in America that we can’t wait for hollywood to bring gosnell to the big screen? Just to make some $$$$ for all involved perhaps? or is this movie so important and somehow informative of the gravity of his evil that it must be displayed for all to see. gosnell is just a slice of the abortion pie, a sliver of the sickening narrative that unfortunately happens to be a part of America’s downfall legacy. What is twisted and sad is that this doctor had to kill some fetus’s outside the womb and that is the horror. Killing the unborn babies inside the womb is just plain acceptable..

  • Sentinel

    It’s grotesque to imagine this happens every single day in this country. I’m speechless…

    • $13245463

      Perhaps it should be performed on wet-brained libtards?

      • Sentinel

        In a way… it already has. Public schools…

  • Freddie Sykes

    One of Gosnell’s victims was a young woman who tried to change her mind at the “clinic” and was held down and underwent an abortion against her will. That is not choice.

  • kssturgis62

    Praise Jesus all those babies are with the LORD. I don’t know how anyone cannot be affected by what took place with this man. even those that support abortion. It just sickens me. What it also tells me is that you have to have a heart and a soul to care.

  • LIBERTYUSA

    …God created LIFE ,

    not to be ABORTED under any circumstances .”(period)

  • Doc Clear

    It’s because Obama ACTUALLY VOTED FOR THIS! When he was a state senator. Truthfully, there is a group of these sickos who think that as long as the kid can’t fend for himself (age of 2?) or survive on their own, then they can be aborted. Not ‘Killed’ because it’s not viable. See? They didn’t cover the trial either until they absolutely HAD to, and then it was vaguely.

  • carolina mama

    Sorbo’s movie “God’s Not Dead” opening in the UK tomorrow! Reports indicate that movie previews have gone well. http://www.christiantoday.com/article/gods.not.dead.affirms.the.hunger.for.quality.christian.movies.but.can.it.be.satisfied/36785.htm

    Only as this corrupt Administration and a neutered Eric Holder can Gosnell kill babies that are still breathing and in the last Tr-Mester

  • planetes

    Let some faux-Christian lunatic bomb an abortion clinic and the media goes crazy with wall-to-wall coverage for weeks.

    Let a devil like Gosnell kill hundreds (thousands?) of breathing babies and “……”

    Who do you love, Hollywood? Mass murderers, or babies? Oh, right. Babies aren’t pro-abortion.

    It’s coming up on Easter weekend, and we think on (and celebrate) the most important event in world history – the resurrection of our Lord and Savior, Jesus the Christ. But Jesus had to be born before He could die. To destroy the King, Herod had every baby in Bethlehem 2 years and younger killed, to hedge his bets. Even most liberals would recoil at this historical fact. Or do they? Something tells me that the ones who don’t want to see Gosnell fry would also shed no tears for the babes of Bethlehem.

    It also seems to me that people might ought to start rethinking a belief system that is so nonchalant towards the most helpless members of the human race.

    Standing against the injustice of plunder in no way implies that one regards advancement of the less fortunate as an unworthy cause.
