The trial of a Philadelphia abortion doctor, whose shoddy clinics and gruesome practices led to his conviction of three counts of murder and one count of involuntary manslaughter, is the subject of a movie due to be released in October.
A trailer previews the movie "Gosnell: America's Biggest Serial Killer", a crowd-funded project produced by a team of filmmakers and journalists, some of whom were present for the trial which concluded in 2013.
The name takes its title from the grand jury report in the trial, which detailed the crimes and grisly malpractices of abortion doctor Kermit Gosnell's clinics, including the snipping of the necks of more than 100 babies who had survived abortion.
The film was given the green light to show in U.S. theaters after the producers settled with Judge Jeffrey Minehart, who was involved in the original Gosnell trial and sued to block the film's release, arguing that he was portrayed in the film as "Philadelphia's liberal corrupt government."
