Gosnell Movie - only showing in 4 area theatres - MUST SEE!

St. Paul (Fenton) | October 30 2018

Gosnell: the Trial of America's Biggest Serial Killer movie is in theatres but only showing at Ronnies, Arnold, Mid Rivers and Town Square. Check websites for show times. The movie is very well done, worth the money to support the film, not graphic and profound on many levels. It is important we get the word out for people to see this movie before it leaves theatres and is shoved under the rug. The movie isn't just about abortion it's about the unsanitary conditions of these medical facilities with no government inspections, selling prescriptions, and children administering medications to patients. Everyone should see this movie.
