The story behind Gosnell

The movie that Lauren and Josiah Duggar of Counting On went to see is about Dr. Gosnell. He was the first doctor to be convicted of murder. This actually went on for 30 years before he was stopped. He would perform an abortion, but if the baby came out still alive he had another way to make sure it passed away. Dr. Gosnell would actually snip the babies’ spinal cord killing it. One baby was actually 30 weeks’ gestation when Gosnell had a failed abortion with him and then snipped his spinal cord.

He had several charges against him, but four of them were for babies that were born alive after the abortions failed. Gosnell then killed them. Another charge was for the death of Karnamaya Mongar. This woman died from a drug overdose given to her during an abortion in Gosnell’s facility. Counting On cast Josiah and Lauren had a hard time watching the movie focused on this story.

The movie came out on October 12, 2018. It can be seen in various theaters across the United States. Josiah and Lauren Duggar of Counting On won’t be the only ones sharing their opinions after seeing it. This movie is going to cause a lot of controversy.
