We have some great news! We’ve just signed up the best-selling author and screenwriter Andrew Klavan to write the script for the Gosnell Movie.
Andrew has written a number of internationally bestselling crime novels such as True Crime, later adapted for a film directed and starring Clint Eastwood and Don’t Say A Word which starred Michael Douglas. As a screenwriter, Klavan wrote A Shock to the System, which starred Michael Caine, and One Missed Call, starring Ed Burns and Shannyn Sossamon.
Andrew said: “This is so much more than a job of work for me. As I’ve begun to get into the research materials, it’s started to come home to me that we’ve all taken on a huge responsibility. The women who were brutalized by this Gosnell monster — they can tell their stories. But all his victims, all those babies — we’ve got to figure out a way to speak for them somehow.”
In a lengthy writing career Klavan has been nominated for the Mystery Writers of America’s Edgar Award five times and has won twice.
His essays and op-eds on politics, religion, movies and literature have appeared in the Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, The Washington Post, The LA Times, and elsewhere. He has also produced several popular political satire video series, including “Klavan on the Culture,” for PJTV.com, “A Very Serious Commentary,” for Glenn Beck’s TheBlaze.com and his current series “The Revolting Truth,” for TruthRevolt.org.
We are delighted that Andrew had agreed to write the screenplay. He is unafraid of the darkest parts of this story and sees, despite all the horror perpetrated by Gosnell, hope and light in the many real heroic characters that finally ensured justice was done. He also understands that the story needs to be told in an entertaining and accessible way to reach the widest audience possible.
Kermit Gosnell is America’s least known serial killer. We want to change that and almost 27,000 of you have donated to make this happen. Andrew won’t let you down.
We are excited to get the movie underway. We know that you are all waiting to see it and that is very motivating for all involved.
Thank you for your support – and lets begin this exciting journey together. You will hear from us again soon!

Couldn’t think of a better title. This is completely off the cuff,but I feel a little guilty leaving Chrissy to carry the burden here,which she has done as only she can. News just seemed like a soap opera where you could check in every couple weeks and not much has changed. Christians are still being slaughtered,Barry still lying in between golf games and race hustlers still trying to keep the masses angry enough to be motivated to get off their backsides and try to save the democrats’ bacon in about 8 weeks. Things will start getting interesting pretty soon.
It’s over. Labor Day has past and with it the official end of summer. One last chance for a ride in the country to a farm that sells fresh produce in the front yard. Fresh corn to roast on the grill alongside the dead animal flesh,tomatoes and bell peppers for the salad and ripe,red watermelon to remind you of days when you got so messy eating it and spitting the seeds at your sister. Here in the northern climes it seems like it’s warm for such a short time and cold for so long it’s hard,once again,facing the reality of months of freezing cold,snow and ice storms.
This was the coldest summer I can remember in some time. Temperatures every night dropped to the upper 50s-low 60s. We had one day in July when the weather hit 90 degrees and maybe two days in August. The park district pools and the water theme park suffered because the water never gets really warm and kid aren’t too keen on swimming when it’s 70 degrees. The farmer we talked to said all the rain we got really made the corn grow. Sometimes we lose sight of the fact that God has a plan for everything He does,even if we whine like little kids about it.
True Facts About the Cuttlefish < FUNNY!
Spain’s aggressive government support for renewable energy caused utility prices to skyrocket. While costs for energy and everything that uses energy rose sharply, jobs disappeared. With more people needing welfare and fewer producers paying taxes, the Spanish government was forced to admit in 2012 that it simply cannot afford to continue subsidizing “green” energy.
Obama told us to “look to Spain.” I couldn’t agree more.

On June 13, 2014, President Obama carefully SPELLED OUT the acronym ISIL as “EYE ESS EYE ELL”, but then said, “a terrorist organization that operates in both Iraq and in Syria.”
June 13, 2014 remarks by Obama: See first 30 seconds of video
Why is that weird? Because it is the more common acronym – ISIS – that stands for Islamic State in Iraq and Syria. ISIL stands for Islamic State in Levant.
I don’t think his insistence on ISIL is a mistake. With only a single exception on August 9, Obama has used “ISIL” in every statement he’s made this summer, even while reporters asking him questions referred to the group as “ISIS.”
Is his choice significant? I don’t know. Maybe ISIL is just what his intell wonks use. Or maybe he’s broadcasting a message of support for the destruction of Israel. I lean to the latter explanation, because I have not forgotten these two official White House photos. But I could be totally off base.
