The movie spotlighting the crimes of abortionist and serial killer Kermit Gosnell is set to be released this fall, hitting theaters October 12th. While the movie will surely be a riveting horror story, the real-life version is undoubtedly worse.
In 2009, authorities raided the abortion facility of Kermit Gosnell, who operated at 3801 Lancaster in Philadelphia. One of his patients, Karnamaya Mongar, had been killed, but when officials began making their way through his facility, more horrors awaited them.
Dozens of corpses of aborted babies were frozen, some possibly up to 30 years old. Jars with severed baby feet were on display. Blood, urine, and cat feces was on the floor, thanks to flea-infested cats allowed to roam freely, with women moaning in tattered recliners, covered with blood-stained blankets. Countless women were butchered in botched abortions, rendered infertile or suffering other horrible complications, and others were infected with sexually transmitted diseases. At least one other patient was killed, in addition to Mongar. Unlicensed staff were allowed to practice on patients, performing vaginal exams and administering drugs. Gosnell was also suspected of operating a pill mill, illegally prescribing painkillers. But perhaps the most disturbing of all was the story the bodies of his victims told.
Gosnell, it was suspected, had illegally been committing late-term abortions. But that wasn’t all; it soon came to light that he would deliver babies alive, and then “snip” their spinal cords with scissors. He was ultimately convicted of murdering three infants but is suspected of killing many more.
Sadly, as Live Action’s Inhuman investigation showed, Gosnell was far from alone:
Another worker said Gosnell once put “a fetus wrapped inside of a blue paper” into a surgical glove with “another glove over it. He was standing in the hall, speaking with myself and two of his assistants. He was tossing the fetus up in the air and catching it. Like it was a rubber ball.” The employee said Gosnell “laughed” and said, ‘Nobody knows what this is.'”
A former patient likewise testified about how she was forced to go through with the abortion after changing her mind:
I remember just walking through looking and seeing some women that looked half-dead in these bloody recliner chairs, and blood all over the floor…. I didn’t see him until I was hooked up with IVs and when they put the heart monitor around me, that’s when I decided I can’t do this. And he’s like “Oh, stop being a little baby,” and he’s pounding on my legs, “Stop being a little baby, stop being a little baby!” And… I’m like tied to the bed. And the next thing I know, I’m out of it.
Gosnell is now serving life in prison without the possibility of parole, but he still seems to see himself as the victim, and continues to claim that he is innocent. He also argued that the Bible justifies his actions, saying, “Genesis begins almost – I think it’s Genesis 2:7 expresses the breath of life as the beginning of life. That God breathed breath, breathed life into Adam. The Bible to me is very clear that life does not happen until breath.”
Kermit Gosnell is not just an abortionist; he’s something far more horrific. He’s arguably the country’s most prolific serial killer, a butcher of women and a murderer of babies. And perhaps the most chilling thing of all is how easy it was for him to get away with it for so long.
