I regularly watch The Five on Fox News. Last night, they were talking about the new movie initiative to document the life of Kermit Gosnell, the abortion doctor who was charged with murdering born-alive babies after failed abortions, and who is now in prison for life.
Bob Beckel couldn't comprehend why no one in Hollywood would want to make this film. He said that it can't be because it is too gory, since they made a film about Ted Bundy who killed (and ate) 45 victims.
I wanted to shout at the television set, and have since tried to contact Beckel by email. I know why Hollywood doesn't make such a film and it should be bleedingly obvious to everyone who knows anything about abortion stats. I can only assume that perhaps Beckel doesn't know the stats, and that would explain why he doesn't "get it".
The Guttmacher Institute states that, by the age of 45, nearly half of all women will have had an abortion. That is pretty alarming stats from an institute associated with Planned Parenthood. It doesn't stand to gain anything by stating such alarming statistics.
Another source from Britain states that 28% of all women by age 45 will have had an abortion. I tend to think that statistic is more believable.
Whatever the stats, one can be sure that Hollywood personalities will have a higher rate of abortions than the rest of the population. After all, child bearing, weight gain, inability to film well on camera will all figure into whether women carry through a pregnancy. And the desire to excel in film (after all, that is why they are there) will affect how those women view an inconvenient pregnancy. You may say I don't have the figures to back this statement up, but I have no doubt that abortion is pretty common amongst film stars.
For every woman who aborts, there are other people involved. There is the father of the child to begin with, and there are relatives and friends who may or may not know about the abortion. So many people will have something to conceal when there is an abortion, even if they are not the one who had it. Kermit Gosnell was only in business because women wanted their pregnancies terminated. For every Gosnell who gets convicted of murder, there are all the patients he treated who were complicit in the act.
So to make a film that documents the horrific practice of Kermit Gosnell is not something Hollywood has any interest in. For one thing, it probably wouldn't make a lot of money. But the most important reason is that such a film would convict practically everyone of the murder of all those babies and of all their own babies.
It is one thing to show up the murderous life of someone like Ted Bundy, but quite another to make public the murderous acts of one-third to one-half of the female population.
