Less than two months ago, “FrackNation” directors Phelim McAleer and Ann McElhinney set before themselves a monumental task: raising money for a film about Philadelphia abortionist Kermit Gosnell. After Kickstarter rejected factual language about Gosnell in the film’s description, the directors took their efforts to crowdfunding site Indiegogo.
And today, just a few days shy of their deadline, McAleer and McElhinney met and surpassed their fundraising goal of $2.1 million.
Back when this endeavor began, the directors wrote, “Dr. Kermit Gosnell is the most prolific serial killer in American History, but almost no one knows who he is.” That’s about to change.
