“As New York and Virginia toy with late-term abortion, the Gosnell movie paints a picture of what that can mean for women and their children who died horribly, moments from birth,” said SFLA’s Kristan Hawkins.
FREDERICKSBURG, VA (2-13-19)– Students for Life of America is teaming up with the Gosnell movie to bring the film to 90+ campuses across the country on Monday, February 18th.
The Gosnell movie tells the true story of Philadelphia abortionist Kermit Gosnell, who ran a house of horrors abortion facility in Philadelphia. Gosnell was convicted of three counts of murder after he killed babies by cutting their spinal cords, as well as “hundreds of abortion law violations for performing illegal, third-term abortions or failing to counsel women and teens” according to the Guardian.
Kristan Hawkins, president of Students for Life of America, said in a statement, “The Gosnell movie shows what happens when the law fails to step in and protect human life, whether at the state or federal level. This movie is needed now more than ever, at a time when the Cuomo-Northam Democratic Party are pushing to repeal any protections for preborn babies and babies who are born alive during an abortion, at the behest of their Planned Parenthood donors.”
