UPDATE 5/10 8:10a: The $2.1 million funding goal for the Gosnell tv documentary was indeed reached and surpassed yesterday! Now producers have a “stretch goal” for the 2-1/2 days they have left before the crowdfunding campaign ends:

Gosnell Movie new crowdfunding goal

At present the number of funders is 24,243. If you haven’t yet, donate just $1 to help show not just the breadth but the depth of support for a movie about Gosnell’s heinous crimes against not only preborn children but barely postborn children.

2014-05-09_09385/9, 11:10a: As I type, funding for the proposed Gosnell tv documentary has almost reached its goal – and 4 days before the deadline!

Donations stand at the moment at $2,083,632, just short of the history making $2.1 million target.

It is fun to hit ”refresh” and now see the total go up by thousands every few minutes!

Recall liberally biased crowdfunder Kickstarter rejected the project. But in so doing Kickstarter cut off its nose to spite its face, losing its 5% cut, or $105,000, to Indiegogo, along with the chance to host a record-breaker, quoting film producers Magdalena Segieda, Phelim McAleer, and Ann McElhinney:

So far, the biggest “crowd funded” film of all-time is the Veronica Mars movie, a teen detective story that asked for $2.1m and raised $5.7m, we think the Gosnell movie is more important, we think you do too.

So we are asking for $2.1m and we are hoping to break the record and make history. 

With your help we’re going to hire the best screenwriter, director and actors to make sure that the story of Kermit Gosnell gets into every home in America. 

Bravo to celebrities who have endorsed the Gosnell documentary, including actors Nick Searcy and Kevin and Sam Sorbo.

These actors are swimming against the Hollywood tide. As The Five’s Greg Gutfeld noted:

The thing is, I mean, it is a brutal topic. But so is Idi Amin, so is Rwanda, so is the holocaust. Hollywood has made movies that involved all of those topics. The reason why they don’t do this one is not because the evil is so grotesque. It’s that it’s too close to a moral choice they’ve made. That’s what it’s about. It’s not that like, ah it’s so hard to do something on this man who butchered babies. It’s because it’s too close to the pro-choice mindset.

Amen, and so it’s up to us to now not only meet the goal but push past it. Doing so will demonstrate pro-life muscle, make the film ever better, and show wobbly cable channels that people are interested in Gosnell and will watch the documentary.

This is an investment in the progression of support for the sanctity of preborn humans in America. As Gutfeld said, what Gosnell did hits too close to home on abortion. This film will cause many who considered themselves pro-choice to change their minds.
