A movie about the trial of late-term abortion doctor Kermit Gosnell is garnering attention and success at the box office – despite a near black-out by the mainstream media.
Similar to how it practically ignored the actual trial of the Philadelphia abortionist, the mainstream media has turned the other way with the release of the movie, Gosnell: The Trial of America's Biggest Serial Killer.
Despite the snub, the film was the most successful independent film at the box office this past weekend and was the fourth-most successful of new films released over the weekend.
Christian movie critic Michael Foust believes that Americans truly want to know what really goes on behind closed doors of abortion facilities in the United States.
"I think people supported it because of what it was,” he expressed. “It was a well-done movie that was telling a message that Americans needed to hear."
Foust told OneNewsNow that the movie shows that there is no moral difference between what Gosnell did – murdering infants born alive during abortion procedures – and what other abortionists are allowed to do.
"What this film does is it exposes not just what took place at Gosnell's clinic – which was, of course, illegal and immoral – but what takes place at clinics across America… which is legal and immoral,” the pro-family advocate explained. “And so, I think with that taking place during the movie, it could change some hearts and minds of people who might be on the fence on this issue.”
Foust stressed that simply for the movie to be made was an achievement because it was financed through a crowdfunding campaign – one of the most successful ever.
