When the Grand Jury indicted abortion doctor Dr. Kermit Gosnell in 2011, it wrote: "This case is about a doctor who killed babies... What we mean is that he regularly and illegally delivered live, viable babies in the third trimester of pregnancy--and then murdered these newborns by severing their spinal cords with scissors... Over the years, many people came to know that something was going on here. But no one put a stop to it."Filmmakers Ann McElhinney and Phelim McAleer (FrackNation, Not Evil Just Wrong) have spent the last few years investigating the case and raising money for a feature documentary about the man they call "America's biggest serial killer." Now, in Gosnell, McElhinney and McAleer report their shocking findings, taking readers inside the grisly case the mainstream media hesitated to cover. What really happened in Gosnell's Pennsylvania clinic? And perhaps more importantly, how did Gosnell get away with infanticide for decades?

This is an excellent book to learn about the murderous Gosnell. It does repeat itself a little, but is worth reading, nonetheless. Because of mainstream media's left-leaning bias, and the hot-button topic of abortion, Gosnell's heinous actions were only superficially reported in the press, and I'm amazed and appalled at how few people are familiar with the facts.

I can only assume the original reviewer here did not read the entire book; there are numerous interviews and citations from people who are pro-abortion and liberal.

Of course the authors are anti-abortion; it's bordering on psychopathy to think it's okay to kill a baby that's still inside its mother, but not to kill it five minutes later when it's outside. The definition of murder ought not to be dependant upon location.

That said, facts are facts. I don't know of any pro-abortion ("pro-choice") folks who are okay with the idea of delivering a baby, killing it, and stuffing it down the garbage-disposal unit. Or chopping off the feet of murdered babies, and keeping them in the fridge.

I disagree with the other reviewer. The book interviews Judges, Detectives, District Attorneys, and even Gosnell himself. It has plenty of details about the case. They also quote multiple Pro-Choice people in the chapter about media reaction.

I agree that it does have a Pro-Life point of view without outright announcing it, but it doesn't take away from the theme of the book. The overall theme was the colossal failure from the state of Pennsylvania, other physicians, and the many regulators that turned a blind eye to Gosnell.

My only complaint is that the authors repeat many of the same stories and anecdotes throughout the book. It is a good book that is not as gory as you probably would expect.

Kermit Gosnell is a repulsive man and a lousy excuse for a human being, and deserves everything that is coming to him. However, this book about the reproductive services clinic he ran in Philadelphia is anything but fair. It is a pro-life screed written by two "reporters" worthy of Breitbart News. It is biased, unreliable and just a plain stupid book. The "praise" given by people like Michelle Malkin and Alan Robertson ("Duck Dynasty") should have been a warning. No praise, in fact, was sought from people who are neutral on the issue of abortion, or who are pro-choice but angered at how Gosnell conducted his work. Libraries should be about the free expression of ideas, of course, but there should be a warning label if a book leans too far right or too far left. This is one of those books. I've never rated a book this low at Bibliocommons, but it really doesn't even deserve the half star I'm giving it.
