You may remember Kevin Sorbo as the muscular action star of
the long-running television adventure series Hercules.
But now the well-known actor is throwing his muscle into
a pro-life media cause.
Sorbo and his wife Sam are putting their weight behind a
movie production entitled Gosnell:
America’s Biggest Serial Killer
. The movie, with the tagline “The Doctor Is
Sin,” intends to tell the horrific story of Kermit Gosnell. A late term abortion doctor in Philadelphia
for thirty years, Gosnell was found guilty of multiple murders, including at
least 21 late term abortions. In 2013, according to several news outlets, he
was sentenced to life without parole.
Mr. and Mrs. Sorbo recorded a video to help promote the fundraising
effort designed to get the film into production. According to the film’s Web
, the crowdfunding effort has raised $2.25 million to pay
for the project. The television drama is being made by friends of the Sorbos,
journalists Phelim McAleer and Ann McElhinney. The filmmaking pair may base the
drama on actual grand jury testimony and trial transcripts.
“We pray that the thousands of babies slaughtered are not
forgotten,” says Kevin Sorbo in the video. “It’s the crime of the century but
most of Hollywood and the media have ignored the story. If the media won’t do
their job, then we can do it ourselves.”
Sorbo’s most recent acting effort was in the surprise hit
film, God’s Not Dead
