Abortionist Kermit Gosnell is serving a life sentence for murdering babies born alive during abortion attempts and a woman who died during a procedure.
Pro-lifers noticed that mainstream media didn’t seem too interested in reporting on his house of horrors and covering his trial. Filmmakers Ann McElhinney and Phelim McAleer raised funds to make a documentary about “America’s biggest serial killer.” The project was fully funded.
But according to one of the filmmakers, Hollywood studios and distributors don’t seem interested in Gosnell’s story, either.
In a phone call with Breitbart News on Tuesday, producer Phelim McAleer said that a number of major studios and distributors have rejected the film, including several major streaming services.
McAleer declined to name specific distributors, citing nondisclosure agreements.
McElhinney added that Gosnell producers made a conscious decision to aim for a PG-13 rating, eschewing some of the most graphic material in an attempt to make the film as accessible as possible.
“This is continuing the media coverup — they don’t want anything that asks difficult questions about abortion,” she said in a statement.
Gosnell is currently in post-production, but without a distributor lined up, the producers say they are planning an independent release to get around what they call Hollywood’s blatant “coverup.” McAleer said test screenings of the film have scored “off the charts” and pointed to the film’s record-breaking crowdfunding haul — $2.2 million from more than 30,000 contributors — as proof that there is an audience for the story.
Why won’t Hollywood deal with this real-life horror story? We know Hollywood has little aversion to blood and gore. Does it have anything to do with the act of abortion itself?
Is the true story of a man slaughtering helpless, vulnerable, and voiceless human beings born alive after his first attempt to kill them too much even for those left-coast leftists?
