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.
