Plain and simple, this movie hurt my heart and my soul.

No, I won't hear of it! Dr. John R. "Goat-Gland" Brinkley was "America's biggest serial killer." See "Charlatan," by Pope Brock. Where is the exploitation movie about him?

Didn't realize this was anti-choice propaganda when I checked it out. This man was definitely a criminal, but don't waste your time if you believe that women have the right to bodily autonomy.

This would've been a good film if they had stuck to the story, which was the illegal abortions the doctor performed, the untrained staff he had administering anesthesia, the unsanitary conditions, the unsterilized instruments, and the collection of dead baby's feet the doctor had which clearly showed his psychopathy. But they didn't. Instead they graphically depicted the process of abortion and spent more than 40 minutes on that. So I would say the purpose of this film is not really to tell the Gosnell story, but to make an anti-abortion stance. Production values were poor, direction and editing were even worse. It's a d-flick at best.

What a moving movie! What took place here was unholy. So much was overlooked by an over taxed system. What shame! Fantastic movie, watched it 3 times.

While the hyperbolic title showed anti-abortion bias but the heart of THIS PARTICULAR chilling drama was real and that the Gosnell character and his associates were one rotten group of insane actors in the largely lawful abortion physician community, thanks to repeated failures in the Pennsylvania Department of Health. A timely film as some States are pushing the controversial and restrictive fetal heartbeat bill.

True story about a doctor who killed live aborted fetuses with out any remorse. This man had no respect for human life or the woman he performed abortions on. Movie also shows how the people responsible for regular inspections allowed him to do what he did in his unclean filthy clinic.

A movie about abortion and the murder of the unborn. The Gosnell character seemed to be in a unrealistic world of his own. He convinced himself that he was helping women by killing their young. God calls this murder and this man should not live but die the same way he murdered the young. Women can get their tubes tide and avoid this murderous act. Why don't they?

Depicts the heartbreaking and horrifying aspects of the case without being graphic. The facts speak for themselves. The actor portraying Dr. Gosnell gave a chilling performance of a doctor who has lost his way long ago. Highly recommended!

I first saw the book on this case years ago but I never read it I should have done so. This is a really good movie it doesn't have to show the actually bodies to be effected at all just knowing when then went though the clinic and home was enough to know this was the most heinous crime I have ever seen about more victims then other serial killers. This sadist heinous of a so called human being is the worst because of being a butcher of women and fetus also babies too. This is just a unjust what happens to women who don't feel they have a choice when it comes to health and risk they are willing to take. So many years this went on so many died and I could not even grasp this sadist mind frame of this killer it just was unreal totally which was the shocking part to me of this movie they way he was and probably still is and always will be even in prison too. I think the death penalty should of been what happened not life. Another thing this is scary this types of situation are still happening with others who pretend to be doctors.
