In the words of ABC correspondent Terry Moran, Kermit Gosnell was “America’s most successful serial killer.”
I’ve only been in America a few years, but one thing I’ve learned is that Americans are fascinated by killers and serial killers. You see it every night on prime-time TV — “Law & Order,” “Criminal Minds,” “Dexter,” “The Following,” “CSI” and “The Mentalist.” And that’s not including the TV movies — three on Ted Bundy, four apiece for John Wayne Gacy and Jeffrey Dahmer, three on Gary Ridgway and five on the Zodiac Killer.
So a film about Gosnell seemed like an obvious idea that Hollywood was neglecting.
Of course, the reason for this neglect was pretty clear: This serial killer was an abortionist who was completely unregulated. His trial threw up ugly realities about abortion that changed the minds of several jurors, a liberal journalist at the trial and even Gosnell’s defense attorney. Hollywood, with its Planned Parenthood fund-raisers, would want to stay away from this case.
That neglect and urgent wish for the trial and the issue to go away was obvious, especially as the media was a no-show at his trial.

I’ve donated to Kickstarter, for a documentary by the name of “Puppycide“. Ironic isn’t it? Kickstarter is all over the issue of cops shooting dumb animals, but don’t want to touch something that involves the wanton murder of innocent babies. Well, you live and you learn. So, here’s a suggestion of who to sponsor instead…
Appalled by the double standard, we immediately pulled our project from Kickstarter and put it up on the rival site Indiegogo. The next day, after getting media inquiries about its censorship, the Kickstarter folks sent us a non-acceptance “acceptance” that noted pointedly that they reserved the right to take our project down at any time if our updates upset them. No, thanks.
Lastly, I’ve been thinking about who gives to charity, and funds good works. Every poll indicates that conservatives donate more and donate more often. I’ve observed that many times liberals “donate” to things that they want to use themselves; theaters, parks, each others political campaigns. I think it’s pass time for conservatives to hold each organization that they give too, to a higher standard. Make them be actually tolerant, not just lip service tolerant. If the values of America aren’t to disappear forever, we need to demand that they be followed.
