Phelim McAleer and Ann McElhinney

Host: Dr. James Dobson

August 11, 2021

For 30 years, convicted murderer Kermit Gosnell operated as a licensed doctor and abortion provider, running a clinic in West Philadelphia that was nothing short of a house of horrors. On today's edition of Family Talk, Dr. James Dobson sits down with filmmakers Ann McElhinney and Phelim McAleer, the couple behind the 2017 movie entitled Gosnell: The Trial of America's Biggest Serial Killer. They discuss the heart behind the film and the impact it is making in our society. Not surprisingly, the mainstream media refused to report on the Gosnell investigation at the time.
