Although the news media and Hollywood relish telling stories about horrific crimes and serial killers, they are strangely silent about Dr. Kermit Gosnell, an abortionist who killed living, viable babies by snipping their spinal cords with scissors, and who is “America’s most prolific serial killer,” said actor Kevin Sorbo and his wife Sam Jenkins in a video to promote funding for a movie about Gosnell.

“Kermit Gosnell is America’s most prolific serial killer,” says Kevin Sorbo, who starred in the TV series Hercules: The Legendary Journeys. “For more than three decades he was an abortion doctor in Philadelphia, where he delivered live, viable babies, who cried and fought for their life before he murdered them by severing their spinal cords with a scissors. He called it snipping. It’s the crime of the century, but most of the media and Hollywood have ignored the story.”

Sorbo’s wife, Sam Jenkins, also an actor, says, “Hollywood loves serial killers. TV and movies are full of these stories, the scarier the better would seem to be the motto. CSI, Criminal Minds, Person of Interest, The Black List, The Following, Law & Order, and CIS, Dexter, and many movies follow suit.”

“Even our national and local news is dominated by the crimes committed every day in our society,” she says. “So, it’s very odd that America’s biggest serial killer has been virtually ignored, erased from history. … We need to confront and expose this story. Why did so many people do nothing for so long? Why, when Gosnell was prosecuted, did the media ignore it? Why does Hollywood want to ignore it?”

Both Sorbo and Jenkins call upon viewers to donate to gosnellmovie.com, a proposed documentary on Gosnell by filmmakers Phelim McAleer and Ann McElhinney, who are running a crowd-funding campaign to raise money for the movie through the online platform indiegogo.
