‘Gosnell’ star Dean Cain: New abortion protection ‘would make the crimes of Kermit Gosnell legal’

Actor Dean Cain is speaking out about the left’s push to protect abortion up to birth.

After New York state passed strong new legal protections for abortion rights Tuesday, allowing late-term abortions when a woman’s health is endangered, the lead actor of Amazon Prime’s new drama “Gosnell” appeared on “Fox & Friends” to share his thoughts on the hotly debated matter.

The regulation signed by New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo and currently being proposed in Vermont “would make the crimes of Kermit Gosnell legal,” said Cain, who is also an executive producer of the film.
Seventy-seven-year-old Gosnell, currently serving life in prison without parole, was an abortion provider who has been labeled as one of America’s most prolific serial killers.

“The worst thing I learned [during the production of the film] was what actually takes place during a late-term abortion,” Cain told Fox News.

“I did not have any idea and I thought I was a pretty knowledgeable guy — and it’s gruesome, and it’s the kind of thing you’ll learn if you watch the film. We don’t show everything, but you understand what took place and there’s a huge emotional impact on the mothers — and you see that in the film.”

Gosnell was arrested in 2011 and sentenced two years later after he was found guilty of three murders — though it’s estimated the Philadelphia doctor killed hundreds more in his low-cost abortion clinic.

“In Pennsylvania, the law is at 24 weeks – which is five-and-a-half months – which is about 80 percent viability of a fetus. After that point in time, unless it was extreme circumstances, you weren’t able to perform an abortion,” Cain explained. “And, he was doing this well beyond that — a lot.”

Cain says the film details the grisly manner in which Gosnell would perform abortions, by inducing the mother’s birth allowing them to give birth to a live child before using a pair of surgical scissors to snip the newborn’s spinal cord.

“But, that would be legal for New York law and what’s being proposed in Vermont,” Cain lamented. “They call it ‘the health of the mother,’ so it’s a really fungible thing to say, whether it’s emotional health or whatever it might be. The point is, if the fetus is not viable, then I understand – that makes sense.”
While the film showcases the abhorrent methods and moral ambiguity of Gosnell, Cain noted that the movie isn’t designed to sway opinion – only tell the story.

“I just encourage people to go watch the film, ‘Gosnell,’ and then make a decision,” said Cain. “I’m not telling anybody what to believe, we don’t do that in the film. But, we tell the story of Kermit Gosnell, and if you’re not affected by that — I don’t know.”

“This is a man who had his own kids. He justified it as not seeing these children as children.”

9-year-old genius to graduate university




Laurent Simons

(CNN) – A child prodigy from Belgium is on course to gain a bachelor’s degree at the tender age of 9.

Laurent Simons is studying electrical engineering at the Eindhoven University of Technology (TUE) — a tough course even for students of an average graduate age.

Described by staff as “simply extraordinary,” Laurent is on course to finish his degree in December.

He then plans to embark on a PhD program in electrical engineering while also studying for a medicine degree, his father told CNN.

His parents, Lydia and Alexander Simons, said they thought Laurent’s grandparents were exaggerating when they said he had a gift, but his teachers soon concurred.

“They noticed something very special about Laurent,” said Lydia.

Laurent was given test after test as teachers tried to work out the extent of his talents. “They told us he is like a sponge,” said Alexander.

While Laurent comes from a family of doctors, his parents have so far not received any explanation as to why their child prodigy is capable of learning so quickly.

But Lydia has her own theory.

“I ate a lot of fish during the pregnancy,” she joked.

The TUE has allowed Laurent to complete his course faster than other students.

“That is not unusual,” said Sjoerd Hulshof, education director of the TUE bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering, in a statement.

“Special students that have good reasons for doing so can arrange an adjusted schedule. In much the same way we help students who participate in top sport.”

Hulshof said Laurent is “simply extraordinary” and praised the youngster.

“Laurent is the fastest student we have ever had here,” he said. “Not only is he hyper intelligent but also a very sympathetic boy.”

Laurent told CNN his favorite subject is electrical engineering and he’s also “going to study a bit of medicine.”

His progress has not gone unnoticed and he is already being sought out by prestigious universities around the world, although Laurent’s family wouldn’t be drawn on naming which of them he is considering for his PhD.

“The absorption of information is no problem for Laurent,” said his father.

“I think the focus will be on research and applying the knowledge to discover new things.”

While Laurent is evidently able to learn faster than most, his parents are being careful to let him enjoy himself too.

“We don’t want him to get too serious. He does whatever he likes,” said Alexander. “We need to find a balance between being a child and his talents.”

Laurent said he enjoys playing with his dog Sammy and playing on his phone, like many young people.

However, unlike most 9-year-olds, he has already worked out what he wants to do with his life: develop artificial organs.

In the meantime, Laurent has to finish his bachelor’s degree and choose which academic institution will play host to the next stage in his remarkable journey.

Before that, he plans on taking a vacation to Japan for an undoubtedly well-deserved break.

Gang members slam BMW into rival and his 8-year-old son in Harlem




Gang members slam BMW into rival and his 8-year-old son in Harlem

Two gangbangers aimed their BMW like a missile at a father and his 8-year-old son on a Harlem sidewalk in a horrifying incident captured by video distributed by police Thursday.

The BMW — driven by a man police believe is a member of the Gorilla Stone Bloods Gang — was zeroed in on the father, a rival gang member, said cops.

Around 3:45 p.m. Nov. 6, the boy and his father were walking on W. 112th St. by Adam Clayton Powell Jr. Blvd. when the BMW jumped the sidewalk and slammed into them both, said cops.

Father and son were both knocked through a gate.

The BMW driver then backed up — and its driver and passenger, also believed to be a gang member, jumped out of the car and ran toward the father and the son.

One of the attackers slashed the father, identified by sources as 32-year-old Brian McIntosh, who’s served prison time for robbery and bail jumping.

McIntosh and his son went to Harlem Hospital. Miraculously, the boy escaped serious harm.

McIntosh was so adamant about refusing to help police catch his attackers that the young boy’s mother had to file a police report alleging he was the victim of a crime, police sources said.

Cops released video of the attack, and ask anyone with information about the suspects to call Crime Stoppers at (800) 577-TIPS.
