So then, brethren, stand firm and hold to the traditions which you were taught by us, either by word of mouth or by letter (2 Thess. 2:15). Guard what has been entrusted to you. Avoid the godless chatter and contradictions of what is falsely called knowledge, for by professing it some have missed the mark as regards faith (1 Tim. 6:21-22).

House of Evil

(I)nside the filthy building, Gosnell was casually murdering born-alive infants, butchering women, and making a macabre collection of severed babies’ feet. His accomplices in crime were a staff of dropouts, drug addicts, and unlicensed medical professionals posing as doctors. But even more important to his decades-long crime spree were his enablers in the outside world―from the state bureaucrats who had copious evidence that Gosnell was breaking the law but did nothing to the politicians whose fervent support for abortion rights kept health inspectors away. The “pro-choice” political, bureaucratic, and media establishment smiled on Gosnell―and gave him carte blanche to kill.excerpt from the Amazon promotional webpage.
A new book exposing atrocities beyond imagination. The silent mass murder of the unborn by Kermit Gosnell, largely ignored by the secular press, is a story that should move any person with a heart to a flood of tears. Would it be unfair to say that the silence of the secular media confirms the media are largely bereft of hearts?
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.
The first thing to say is that this book is not for those who are easily upset by the realities of abortion. What you read in these pages is something so dark, so evil and so sad as to be at times nauseating. As Ann McElhinney admitted in the introduction there were moments when researching the book she had had to stop to weep over what she was uncovering. The reader of this book is likely to experience something similar. Be under no illusion: this is a horror story. Early on in the police investigation, the address—3801 Lancaster Avenue—where Gosnell carried out his barbarism was named the “House of Horrors.” It was precisely that.—K.V. Turley/Crisis Magazine.
Those unfamiliar with the work of McElhinney and McAleer would do well to acquaint themselves with their various projects. If one is interested in alternative media, a term often appropriated by entitled leftist pornographers filmmakers and elitist snobs "artists" who are still flogging their "shock schlock" as the avant garde of film and art, one should make an effort to dive deeply into the world of pro-life media. Pro-Life activists, most of whom are Catholics, put to shame the mild witness of so many so-called Christians of various stripes who stand idly by and ignore the damage to humanity and civilization committed in the name of "choice".

The future will undoubtedly equate the just efforts of McElhinney and McAleer, Mary Wagner and others with those of William Wilberforce, the abolitionist who exposed and campaigned against the horrors of slavery. Like Wilberforce, Pro-Lifers recognize the humanity of those who are not acknowledged to be human by those blinded by greed, self preservation and ignorance.
