The producers of a movie about imprisoned abortion doctor Kermit Gosnell have gotten permission to be on a “crowd-funding” site indefinitely — and are asking for an additional $500,000.

Mainstream media largely ignored the story about Gosnell, who for decades ran an abortion mill in a low-income Philadelphia neighborhood, where he specialized in late-term abortions and saved the “big ones” for himself and his wife on weekends.

This movie has to be made because there’s been “too much censorship already” about the grisly activities of Gosnell, said Irish documentary filmmaker Phelim McAleer, who is producing the movie with Ann McElhinney and Magdalena Segieda.

They have already surpassed a $2.1 million goal through Indiegogo, but are asking for another $300,000 for an extra week of production and $200,000 for acting salaries.

More people wanted to donate to the movie, and “we also heard from previous donors who wanted to give again,” Ms. McElhinney said, according to Newsbusters at Media Research Center.

About $1,000 has been raised in the last two days, according to Indiegogo.

Casting hasn’t been started, but the script for the movie is being written, the producers said.

Indiegogo approved the Gosnell movie as one of its “forever funding” projects, which means donations can be collected indefinitely, the producers said in a recent press release.

Gosnell was convicted of murder in 2013 for “snipping” the necks of three babies who were born alive. He was also convicted of involuntary manslaughter in the death of a mother.
