If you were to consider who the worst serial killer in American history is, the name of the person who deserves the title is not one you've likely heard on the evening news. That?s because the media and the authorities turned a blind eye to his actions. On this episode of the 40 Days for Life Podcast you'll hear the incredible true story of Kermit Gosnell, an abortionist who not only performed late-term abortions but even killed babies after they were entirely out of the womb and struggling for life. Our guest on this episode of the 40 Days for Life Podcast is filmmaker and writer Ann McElhinney.

Jurors were more shocked at what is already legal than by the atrocities Gosnell committed
In order to hear about the horrific things Kermit Gosnell was allowed to do in his Philadelphia abortion clinic, there's no better way to learn about it than to go see the upcoming movie, Gosnell. But an important thing to note about the true story is that those who served on the jury were more horrified by the actions allowed under current abortion law than they were with what convicted murderer, Kermit Gosnell did. On this episode Ann McElhinney describes the reaction of those who served on the jury when they became aware of the normal practices of those who work in the abortion industry, so be sure you listen.
How did Kermit Gosnell do what he did?
How is it possible that the worst serial killer in American history could do what he did under the guise of performing legal abortions? After investigating and understanding the ins and outs of what really happened, filmmaker Ann McElhinney believes that those in places of authority who are charged with inspecting and verifying the cleanliness and practices of those practicing abortions are guilty of dereliction of duty. Hear Ann describe the terrible consequences of the "look the other way" practices of the Department of Health officials in Philadelphia on this episode.

When you hear people talking about "the good of the children," watch out!
Ann McElhinney has heard pro-choice advocates dress up their comments in the most flowery language possible to throw those outside the abortion industry off the track of what is really going on in abortion clinics. She says that anytime she hears a pro-choice person talking about ?the good of the children,? she immediately feels uneasy. That?s because in her experience, it?s one of the many phrases used to cloak practices that are not in any way in the interest of children or their mothers. Find out why Ann is suspicious of such talk and hear what she's seen that makes her so skeptical on this episode.
Gosnell is a movie that memorializes the lives of abortion victims in a powerful way
When you first hear that Ann's new movie, Gosnell is about the trial of the worst serial killer in American history, you might feel that it's a movie you won't want to go see. But you'll be happily surprised at the hopeful conclusion of the movie and the powerful way it tells how a few brave people brought about incredible good from a horrific chain of events. The movie is crafted in a way that is not sappy or unrealistic, the acting is excellent, and the impact of the victims' stories is highlighted in a way that truly changes hearts. Go see Gosnell when it comes out in October of 2018.
