Kickstarter Tells Gosnell Documentary Filmmakers to Remove References to Stabbing Babies


FOX News Insider


Two filmmakers were raising money to make a movie about Dr. Kermit Gosnell when they were reportedly asked to remove certain language from their page.

Ann McElhinney and Phelim McAleer set out to raise $2 million for a movie about the Philadelphia abortion doctor who was convicted in 2013 of the murder of three newborns and accused of killing hundreds more.

Fox News contributor Kirsten Powers, who has covered the Gosnell case, said that Kickstarter told the couple to remove references to babies being stabbed, although that is what he was found guilty of.

“It’s a description of what he did. He was found guilty,” Powers said.



20 Comments on Kickstarter Tells Gosnell Documentary Filmmakers to Remove References to Stabbing Babies

  1. It wasn’t the “stabbing” part that bothered Kockstarter. It was the “babies” part.

    The stylebook requires that “fetus” be used in this instance.

  2. Why, because people may actually wake up to the fact that having an abortion is not the same as removing a tumor?

  3. @thirdtwin, it’s preferable to call it a “clump of cells”.

    Or, as per Zippy, a “punishment”.

  4. The act of doing it, and being convicted of it, is not offensive-just talking about it is?!?!

    “In times of universal deceit-telling the truth is a revolutionary act.” George Orwell

  5. “Severing the spinal cord” is now referred to as “man-caused elective diversion of neural impulses by surgical incision”.

    Stupid neo-cons

  6. “The National Review reports that the couple has decided to crowdfund on Indiegogo instead.”

    That’s how you handle the modern Fascism.

  7. Henceforth, the term “stabbing baby in head with scissors” will be replaced with “unburdening young woman from a baby”.

    There, that fixes it and makes life all sunshine and lollypops again.

  8. Okay, after reading the Newsbuster article, kickstarter either booted the project or the project creator pulled it from there.

  9. Some computer-savvy conservative who knows how this interweb thing works should start a Kickstarter campaign to fund a new fundraising website for conservatives.
