GOSNELL: A Story the Media Has (So far) Failed to Silence

Written by Wes Walker on May 6, 2014

Some of you are tired of the media marching lockstep in their opinions — giving endless attention to stupid fluff pieces while leaving the substantial stories unreported.

For example, you may remember a thunderous silence when the wrong sort of murderer went on trial. The same media that twists itself into knots if someone utters a politically incorrect sentence turned mute when a certain someone faced trial for putting profits ahead of his clients.

That would have been a piece practically dripping with spectacle, now wouldn’t it? You’ve got a rich guy exploiting low-income patients. His place of business was decrepit, a health inspector’s nightmare. He didn’t even have sterile equipment, and his defibrillator was busted. Diseases were transmitted between patients because of his dirty, even rusty equipment.

The story isn’t newsworthy yet?

[Let’s introduce a racism element:] A former employee testified “that white patients often did not have to wait in the same dirty rooms as black and Asian clients.

[or another one] … So he didn’t mind you medicating your African American girls, your Indian girl, but if you had a white girl from the suburbs, oh, you better not medicate her. You better wait until he go in and talk to her first.

Crickets..? Still..? Tough crowd.

How about the fact that he hired an unlicensed med school grad? Or sedation being given by unlicensed staff?

How about people in his care getting hurt: Perforated organs, patient falling off a gurney, refusing to call an ambulance when conditions worsen? Preventing the patients friend from leaving to call an ambulance? Emergency exit padlocked?

Oh yeah. And patients died.  Two women died.

But when the trial began, this damning picture from the courtroom told the whole story.  Nobody cared.

Nobody cared, and yet Kermit Gosnell was found guilty of multiple counts of murder. “He was also convicted on hundreds of lesser charges ranging from infanticide to running a corrupt organization.” (emphasis mine)

See the problem is, people didn’t care about this story because they didn’t WANT his story told. Simpy put, he was part of a protected class. He provided abortions.

His story makes abortion (gasp!) look bad. And we mustn’t promote any narrative that makes abortion look like anything less than glorious, clean and safe.

But the story deserves to be told, and the public deserves to hear the truth about what happened here.

There is one group planning to tell that story. They’re making a documentary. They’re doing an end-run around the usual roadblocks that Hollywierd and the usual news suspects would put up by using crowd sourcing.  They are close to their goal… as I write this, they’re at 88% of their goal with 8 days left. They’re planning to go big with this production. Proper directors, writers, and crew will be hired to make this a quality piece of work.

If they hit their target, before the deadline, they move forward.  If they fall short, the money is returned to those who’ve pledged it. This isn’t their first movie, either.  You may have heard of “FrackNation”, “Mine Your Own Business”, or “Not Evil Just Wrong” which are some of their previous award-winning documentaries.

If this story is important to you, and you’d like to see somebody finally tell it, be proactive.  If you believe in the pro-life cause, you can finally stop complaining about the deficiencies of media groups, and put your money where your mouth is.

This single story has done more to force people to discuss dark realities surrounding abortion than countless marches have. The other side has been paying attention. There’s already been opposition.  Kickstarter already threw them out because they dared to mention that Gosnell stabbed babies to death.

Help them tell this story. Follow this link to see the Gosnell Movie page, and consider if this is a cause you might support. How appropriate might it be — in the days leading up to Mother’s Day — to help lend a voice to these forgotten, murdered, born-alive children.
