So this is highly unusual. LwC favorite Dean Cain was on “The Today Show,” where he discussed his upcoming film on Kermit Gosnell (directed and produced by two other LwC favs, Nick Searcy and Ann McElhinney).
“Gosnell. I just finished the movie — coming out in 2016,” answered Cain, who will play the role of a Philadelphia police detective who investigated Gosnell and his house-of-horrors abortion clinic accused of conducting thousands of late term abortions. Cain didn’t hesitate to describe the scale of Gosnell’s crimes (dismissed as a “local crime story” by one Washington Post reporter and generally ignored by the national media), “One woman died. But he performed late-term abortions on maybe even thousands of babies.”
Ok, an actor plugging his upcoming projects isn’t shocking. What is shocking was this bit of the conversation that followed…
“It’s a tough story,” Cain concluded.
“Talk about a war on women,” Gifford added.
“No kidding, yeah,” Kotb had to agree.
A morning TV show using one of the left’s favorite catch phrases to describe – accurately – abortion, their most sacred sacrament? I don’t want to say it’s a shift in the culture war, but the fact that even Kathy Lee sees this for what it is…it’ll be interesting to see the kind of feathers ruffled when the film comes out. My guess is that Elizabeth Warren and Planned Parenthood will be in full freak-out mode.
I will say this, everyone involved with the film has been on the show (if you’re not signed up for podcasts, do so on iTunes here or Soundcloud here, for all you godless Android users), and I’ve got high hopes for it. The Gosnell story is important not because of what an outlier Gosnell was, but because of just how in line it is with mainstream abortionist ideology.
Because once you take away the conditions of Gosnell’s horror shop, the cover-up, the gut-wrenching absence of humanity… abortion is still what it is. A sacrifice at the altar of self. That sacrifice happens to be an innocent baby. I think more and more people may wake up to that.
Watch our interview with the film’s creator, Ann McElhinney, below. Then watch our interview with Dean Cain below that. Trust me, this film is one you’re going to want to see.
Now Dean Cain.
