Irish-born documentary filmmaker Ann McElhinney (Twitter: @annmcelhinney) is the director and producer of the film “FrackNation“, which exposed the fabrications and misrepresentations of the 2010 film “Gasland”. She and her husband, Phelim McAleer (Twitter: @PhelimMcaleer), are now working on a film (the “Gosnell Movie”) about the notorious abortionist turned convicted murderer Kermit Gosnell.
McElhinney thanked God for crowdfunding. The Gosnell Movie is the most funded film ever on the crowdfunding web site Indiegogo, raising over $2.2 million. Nick Searcy will direct. Go to gosnellmovie.com if you’d like to contribute to this film project.
McElhinney reminded the audience that the drilling method of hydraulic fracturing, aka “fracking”,has been used since 1947. She dismissed claims that hydraulic fracturing causes “flammable water”, uranium contamination of groundwater, higher cancer and infant mortality rates, and other diseases as pure bunk. In fact, hydraulic fracturing to drill for natural gas has led to a large reduction in America’s carbon dioxide emissions, as the cleaner burning natural gas has replaced coal. McElhinney argued that America’s exploitation and use of fossil fuels has helped make America more prosperous and powerful.
She credited the USA as one of the very few nations in the world where you own the mineral rights to any mineral resources found on your land.
McElhinney also mocked liberal claims that they care more than conservatives do about children, yet support abortion rights.
In particular, abortion activists did nothing for 30 years to stop Kermit Gosnell from killing women and children (actual babies born alive). She also blamed apathetic bureaucrats in Harrisburg, PA, for turning a blind eye to Gosnell, whom she characterizes as “America’s biggest serial killer”.
Additionally, she pointedly condemned pro-choice Republican Tom Ridge, former PA Governor and US Secretary of Homeland Security, as Ridge stopped the annual inspection of abortion clinics in PA. This action allowed Gosnell’s sub-standard clinic to avoid scrutiny.
McElhinney thanked Democrat Kirsten Powers, who is pro-life, for publicizing Gosnell’s atrocities at time when the media was obsessed with the Jodi Arias trial and ignored Gosnell.
