Drug Investigators Stumbled Onto Nearly
50 Children’s Bodies in Clinic of Horrors
The story is horrific and shocking. It is so unbelievably gruesome that some preview audiences had a hard time believing it could be real.
But when “Gosnell: The Trial of America’s Biggest Serial Killer” executive producer John Sullivan sat down with The Western Journal’s Josh Manning, he explained that was why actual crime scene photos were included during the credits rolling at the end of the movie: Those horrors really did happen.
Investigators found the bodies of nearly 50 children at Kermit Gosnell’s Women’s Medical Society clinic in Philadelphia, and they were not stored in one place as medical waste. Instead, around every corner investigators found more surprises in the “house of horrors,” according to the firsthand accounts the movie-makers used.
“They were stored in plastic bags, they were put into orange juice containers with the lids cut off, and they were stored in refrigerators in the lunch room … in the break room,” Sullivan said.
As horrific as the discoveries were, little media attention was given to the story, even during the trial. It didn’t fit the pro-abortion agenda supported by so many in the establishment media.
In an opinion piece for LifeNews, reporter J.D. Mullane of the Bucks County, Pennsylvania, Courier Times noted that he covered “the 2013 trial of the infamous Philadelphia abortionist and killer of newborns, a murder trial ignored by Big Media.” The scene of the all the empty media seats from the trial was actually reflective of a real photo Mullane snapped in disgust at the actual proceedings.
And that is not all. I n a preview for the movie, the character of Assistant District Attorney Alexis “Lexy” McGuire says, “Nothing that man did that protects women or children. And you don’t have to be a pro-life activist to see that.’” And perhaps that is the biggest problem of all for the movie and the telling of the story.
This was evidenced when “Gosnell,” which opened Oct. 12 and was doing well on screens nationwide, suddenly started disappearing from theaters. Audiences have raved about the film, with some viewers reporting it changed their views about abortion.
College student Kathy Zhu is one of them. “Yesterday, I was pro-choice,” she told her 50,000 Twitter followers. “I believed that women should have a say & the gov shouldn’t be interfering w/ our lives. Today, I’m pro-life.”
Yesterday, I was pro-choice. I believed that women should have a say & the gov shouldn’t be interfering w/ our lives
Today, I’m pro-life. After watching #Gosnell & doing in-depth research, I finally understand the horrors of loopholes in late-term abortions. Pls go watch Gosnell pic.twitter.com/H7WPz8Dcoj

Despite — or more likely because of — the impact it is having on audiences, “Gosnell” has faced numerous obstacles since its release.
Although the filmmakers strove for accuracy, “Gosnell” is not graphic in its portrayal of the horrific events. This, in contrast to some ordinary or even Halloween and horror-themed movies, would not be a reason for the movie to be pulled from theaters or have its advertising banned.

Cottondale Child Sex Abuse suspect faces
Child Porn charge
TUSCALOOSA, AL – A Cottondale man with pending child sexual abuse charges has been arrested for disseminating child porn.
Agents with the Alabama Bureau of Investigation’s Special Victims Unit arrested James Robert Pendley, 48, on Friday. Pendley is facing one count of dissemination of child exploitation material and could face further charges, according to Lt. Brooke Walker, commander of ALEA’s Special Victims Unit and the Alabama Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force.
Pendley is currently awaiting trial on a charge of first-degree sodomy and domestic violence. He was arrested on May 10, 2017, and charged with first-degree sodomy and one count of third-degree domestic violence/assault, a misdemeanor.
According to court records, Pendley is accused of shoving and pushing a family member who caught him abusing a 6-year-old boy in the bathroom of his residence on North Davis Road on May 4, 2017. A grand jury later indicted Pendley on five felony counts of first-degree sodomy against victims who were 12, 6 and 2 at the time of his arrest.
Tuscaloosa County Circuit Court Judge Al May revoked Pendley’s bond Friday, at the request of the Tuscaloosa County District Attorney’s Office.
The Special Victims Unit was assisted by the Tuscaloosa County Sheriff’s Office, Northport Police, the Joint Electronic Crimes Task Force, Alabama State Troopers, ALEA Tactical team and members of the SBI’s Alcohol and Narcotics division while conducting the child pornography investigation.
Chicago mom tried to drown son, 3, days
after posting online that he had died: police
CHICAGO, IL – Authorities in Chicago this week said a South Side mother falsely wrote on social media that her 3-year-old son had died, then tried to drown him in a bathtub days later.
Celeste T. Christian, 21, was charged with attempted murder as her son remained hospitalized in critical condition, the Chicago Tribune reported.
The child was being treated at University of Chicago Medical Center for asphyxiation and water in his lungs. Police said someone had held the toddler underwater.
Christian told police the child had wet himself after the father dropped him off, and gave him a bath. She claimed she left her son by himself for five to 10 minutes to check on her 2-year-old daughter.
She heard splashing and ran back to the bathroom to find the boy limp in the water, with foam coming out his nose and mouth, and called 911.
An hour before the child arrived at the hospital, a doctor received a call from an organ and tissue donor asking if the boy was there yet, police said. The donor did not reveal who told them the toddler would be there.
When police interviewed the child’s father, he told them Christian had earlier announced on social media that their son had died and wanted to make funeral plans, the paper reported.
Christian was arrested and held without bail at Cook County Jail.
