This police/court room drama is based on actual information on Dr. Kermit Gosnell (played by Earl Billings) who for decades ran a Philadelphia inner-city abortion clinic. In 2010, Philadelphia Police Detectives Wood (Dean Cain) and Stark (Alfonzo Rachel), with DEA and FBI agents, raid the clinic for evidence of illegal prescription drug sales. They are shocked by the clinic's filthy conditions, bags of aborted fetuses in hallways, and fetal body parts stored in a refrigerator. Interviewing clinic workers, they learn: patients are given anesthesia by untrained assistants; one patient died on the operating table from an anesthesia overdose; abortions were performed on babies older than 24 weeks; and some babies were delivered alive, after which Dr. Gosnell cut their spinal cord with scissors. The detectives take the bagged bodies to the coroner and bring the situation to the attention of DA Dan Molinari (Michael Beach). An Assistant DA (Sara Jane Morris) agrees to prosecute the murder ...Written by
When Dean Cain first saw the set for Gosnell's clinic, he asked the producers if they hadn't gone a bit over the top. They responded by showing him footage of the actual raid to demonstrate that they'd tried hard to replicate what the real James Woods saw. See more »
In the film, Gosnell arrives at his clinic during the raid. In real life, law enforcement waited until Gosnell had arrived to enter the building themselves. See more »
Alexis 'Lexy' McGuire:
Why did you decide to take a picture of this particular baby?
He was so big. He looked like he could be somebody's little brother. I just thought there should be a picture of him. To show the world that he was here for a little while.

Saw the movie today. Was not sure what I was going to get. I only went because I was interested in the actual case, and also was relieved by what I had seen that it mostly stays apolitical and lets the story speak for itself. I was pleased to see what I had read/heard was generally accurate. The script was tight, and generally the acting was excellent (Jeanine Turner's character felt the most mis-cast/off, and the blogger, pivotal to making the case go in the movie feels a bit to convenient as a writer's artifice). Production-wise, the greatest weakness was the cinematography. At times the framing just wasn't up to snuff. Searcy does a great job as both a director and actor, Other actors that stand out are Sarah Jane Morris (she undergoes a believable character arc) and Earl Monte is calmly disturbing in the titular role.
That said the movie flowed well, and though there could be many gross-out/gore scenes, they were avoided, and instead what was unseen was what turned my stomach the most.
My biggest complaint where I think they makers went to far and showed their bias was in the closing credits as the included some photos of the crime scene. Nothing overly disturbing (one may be a bit much), but I prefer they had just given the web link for those interested - which they do with one image key to making the case that obviously would have went to far.
I will recommend this movie, and would score it a solid 7 out of 10.
