Bringing the Gosnell Story To the Screen

Independent filmmaker Phelim McAleer (FrackNation) is interested in bringing the story of Dr. Kermit Gosnell to the screen. Dr. Gosnell was convicted of first-degree murder and involuntary manslaughter in 2013 and sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole for killing a baby born alive after a failed abortion, and for the death of an adult patient, and to 30 to 60 years in prison for violation of the RICO act. Mr. McAleer and his partner Ann McElhinney plan to use crowd sourced funding to launch the film. The filmmakers say this film will be scripted, unlike their previous projects.
