Hundreds of Theaters Drop Pro-Life Film ‘Gosnell’ After States Outlaw Abortions

The film has been pulled despite being a huge box office success.

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.

Despite the film’s ban from major theaters, it is surprisingly still available to rent on YouTube, which is known for its censorship of conservative thought.

Texas City Stands Up for Life by Passing Pro-Life Ordinance

Planned Parenthood is not welcome.

Published

on

The town of New Home, located south of Lubbock, became the 15th city in Texas to prohibit abortion on September 29, 2020.

The New Home city council unanimously voted for the resolution following state politicians and local officials discussing the idea of bringing back a Planned Parenthood facility to the city. New Home Baptist pastor L.J. Wright was a champion of this pro-life effort and hopes that the vote will change Lubbock’s city council decision to bring back Planned Parenthood.

“With the City Council in Lubbock seemingly balking at the ordinance while claiming to be Pro-Life, this puts the pressure directly on them,” Wright commented. “Every city in Lynn County should consider following suit with New Home, and get behind Mark Lee Dickson… I am challenging all of West Texas to stand up for life, and make their city a Sanctuary City for the Unborn.”

Mark Lee Dickson, a pro-life activist and director of Right to Life of East Texas, crafted this ordinance.

Texas Senator Charles Perry, who represents Lubbock, has sent a petition around requesting that Planned Parenthood be kept out of Lubbock and signed on a letter calling Lubbock to pass a similar ordinance.

“Passing an ordinance designating Lubbock as a Sanctuary City for the Unborn will help to continue the Texas belief that life begins at conception, while also protecting the safety of mothers,” Perry wrote in the letter, which was also signed by State Representatives Dustin Burrows and John Frullo.

Similar to the other cities who have passed such ordinances, New Home’s ordinance implements the abortion ban by imposing fines on abortion providers. The catch is that this ordinance will go into effect once Roe v. Wade is overturned. Providers will also be held liable for carrying out abortions, and families who have children that were aborted will now be able to sue them.

The Texas reported that “Waskom, Naples, Joaquin, Tenaha, Gilmer, Westbrook, Rusk, Colorado City, Gary, Big Spring, Wells, Whiteface, and East Mountain are the other cities that have adopted the ordinance, modeled by Dickson. The town of Omaha adopted the ordinance but later pulled its teeth, making it a symbolic resolution instead.”

Texans are getting fed up with the inaction of legislators at the state and federal level. So, they’re taking matters into their own hands at the local level. Similar to Second Amendment Sanctuary resolutions, these pro-life movements represent a growing dissatisfaction with the political status quo and are likely a sign of how politics will be conducted from here on out.
