Pro-life film “Gosnell: The Trial of America’s Biggest Serial Killer,” has been dropped from hundreds of theaters around the country, despite its massive box office success.
“Despite the solid performance for an independent film of this sort, nearly 200 theaters have inexplicably dropped the film, including those in major cities where it was performing the strongest,” according to a Tuesday report. “Coming into its second week, ‘Gosnell’ has dropped from 668 theaters to 480 theaters — a full 188 theater drop, 15 of which were top-performing multiplexes.”
The film has grossed a whopping $1,235,000, placing in the top ten grossing films currently in existence.
But the film’s director was not surprised by his movie’s suppression. The culture in Hollywood is largely liberal, and does not support the pro-life movement.
“I can tell you from my experience in 15 years of releasing movies independently, we’re in uncharted territories,” John Sullivan reportedly said. “It is an impacted fall, no doubt about it, but the fact that we’ve been dropped from theaters where the movie is the number 6 or number 9 movie is just something you don’t see. It’s hard not to believe it isn’t about the content of the movie.”
The dropping of the film comes on the heels of two controversial statewide bills banning abortions outright. Last week, Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp (R) signed into a law a “heartbeat bill,” banning abortions after six weeks of pregnancy.
Tuesday, Alabama lawmakers passed a similar – albeit more strict pro-life bill – outlawing abortions in all circumstances, unless the mother’s life is in jeopardy.
Big League Politics reported:
On Tuesday, Reuters reported that the Alabama Senate passed a bill that would outlaw almost all types of abortion.
This includes abortion in the case of rape and incest.
This will would be the strictest pro-life bill in America. The passage of this bill comes following the signing of Georgia’s controversial heartbeat bill.
So far in 2019, legislation to restrict abortion has been introduced in 16 states. According to the pro-abortion Guttmacher Institute, four of those states (Georgia, Kentucky, Mississippi, and Ohio) saw governors sign bills banning abortions if a fetal heartbeat can be detected.

Powerful Homily: Catholic Priest Rebukes Members of the Church Who Ignored Religious Freedom, Voted for Joe Biden
This priest isn’t cowing before the pro-abortion Left.
Father Jeffrey Kirby of the Diocese of Charleston delivered a powerful homily rebuking members of the Church who voted for Joe Biden last week.
Father Kirby began his homily telling the account of St. Thomas Becket, a 12th century English bishop who was murdered in his cathedral for upholding the rights of the Church in defiance of governmental mandates. Kirby compared Becket’s opponents to Catholics who supported Biden, who is likely to continue in the vein of governmental impositions and infringements on religious liberty seen from President Obama’s administration.
Watch Father Kirby’s full homily here.
“Some of you, I know, voted for someone who is now going to suffer and persecute the Church for the next four years…
That on top of the fact that he supports the slaughter of the unborn!
What have you done! What have you done to your Church! Look, and watch, as our religious sisters are dragged through the courts! As contraception is imposed upon them! Watch as our hospitals disappear. Because we will not follow government dictates.”
Biden, who styles himself as a Catholic despite support for unlimited abortion and homosexualism, benefited from the support of more religious Catholics and Evangelical Christians than previous Democrat candidates for President. Father Kirby made sure that those who thought allusions to “tone” and decorum were more important than fundamental Catholic moral teachings on life understood the errors of their ways.
“And those of you who voted for such an administration… bear responsibility, for what you have done. Because we are in for it, folks. And they are already getting ready for it.”
Some high-ranking bishops of the American Catholic Church even went so far as to appear to outright endorse Joe Biden, a development unprecedented for a presidential candidate promising full support for an unlimited abortion agenda.
“Never forget, that the spiritual mystics tell us, that the pavements of hell are paved with the skulls of bishops. I preach the truth. So those of you who are entrusted to my care- you know what we believe as Catholics. You know what the true religion calls for. And I want to make sure that I speak it-even if every one of you denies it.“
