Inside Gosnell’s House of Horrors

by K. V. Turley
Crisis Magazine

The name Kermit Gosnell is now relatively well known.       It should, of course, be better known.

He is after all one of the worst serial killers in the history of the United States. He was an abortionist and it is alleged that this fact alone has contributed to the media committing an astonishing act of indifference in the reporting of his trial and the subsequent crimes it revealed.

A new book Gosnell: The Untold Story of America’s Most Prolific Serial Killer by Ann McElhinney and Phelim McAleer documents not just the wrongdoing committed by Gosnell but also the media blackout that descended once the reality of what had taken place at his abortuary became apparent. It is perhaps no coincidence that this book was written by investigative journalists and filmmakers, a husband and wife team, not from the United States but from Ireland.

Crisis Magazine explores and articulates the subjects of politics, business, culture, faith, and family life from a Catholic perspective. Unlike other apostolates that specialize in one or the other, we cover all, since together, they make up a full human life. Catholicism is a worldview, not just a religion, and its individual elements cannot be understood in isolation from the larger whole. We present the faith in all its lived facets.
