‘God’s Not Dead’s Kevin Sorbo Takes Hollywood & Media To Task As He Backs Crowdfunding Campaign For Telefilm On Convicted Abortion Doctor Kermit Gosnell

Kevin and Sam SorboEXCLUSIVE: Kevin Sorbo is co-star of the past two weekends’ box office pleaser God’s Not Deadwhich has pulled in $24M to date on a $2M budget. Now he is putting his name behind an Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign to help launch the tele-production of Gosnell — the story of the Philadelphia doctor who ran the abortion clinic from hell and was convicted on three counts of first-degree murder — but not without taking a shot at the media and Hollywood. Feature documentarians Phelim McAleer and his wife Ann McElhinney turned to Sorbo and his wife, Sandra (known as Sam), to help raise $2.1M. “Even the pro-choicers would look at this and say, ‘No, this isn’t right,'” Sorbo said. “This is something that my wife and I are behind because we believe in this project. It’s long overdue for this story to be told, and it wasn’t covered by the media nearly as much as some of the other murder cases were.”

The story of the abortion doctor rocked Philadelphia and the nation in 2010 as the horrors of Dr. Kermit Gosnell’s clinic came to light. He murdered babies born alive by sticking a scissors into their necks and snipping their spinal cords. He was not even a certified kermit-gosnellobstetrician or gynecologist. Gosnell had run the Women’s Medical Society in West Philadelphia since 1979 for poor and desperate women seeking abortions, late-term and otherwise. He is serving a life prison sentence without the possibility of parole. It was the gruesome details revealed during the grand jury that underscored how disturbing his crimes were. The remains of fetuses were put in bags, milk jugs, and other containers, and investigators found the severed feet of several fetuses in a jar. The clinic itself was unsanitary, and several women were harmed — one died. What became clear throughout the investigation was that the crimes had been going on for years. “A man with all the tools and the experience at his disposal and still somehow the baby won and was born, he then took measures to kill them,” said Sam Sorbo. “This is a man who seemed to enjoy protection under the law because abortion is such a political issue that they refused to investigate him for years even though there were complaints for decades.” (more…)
