Kickstarter Tells Gosnell Documentary Filmmakers to Remove References to Stabbing Babies
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.
The language reportedly violated community guidelines. Powers reached out to Kickstarter, but said the company would not address the issue of how the language could be disrespectful.
The National Review reports that the couple has decided to crowdfund on Indiegogo instead.
