January/February Event-in-a-Box: 3801 Lancaster
We combined the January and February Event-in-a-Box to bring you one very important event! We are asking your group to host a movie Screening of the upcoming documentary “3801 Lancaster” about the infamous abortionist Kermit Gosnell and his “House of Horrors”. This case exposed the abortion industry for what they really are and brought to light the truth of what happens behind the closed doors of many abortion facilities. It is imperative that we help share this truth with those who think abortion is “safe” and “rare.”
This documentary is difficult to watch but it will impact every person who watches it. There are students at your school who don’t know the truth about the abortion industry. Your group can give them an opportunity to see what is abortion really is by showing this documentary at your school.

“You may choose to look the other way, but you can never say again that you did not know.” –William Wilberforce
“Gosnell was an abortion provider in West Philadelphia. In 2010, the police raided his clinic because they suspected that he was selling prescription drugs illegally,” explains the documentary’s writer David Altrogee, “However, what they found upon entering his clinic was unthinkable” What was discovered during this raid was horrific and led to Gosnell’s arrest and now, a lifetime in prison. Over the last 5 years, the documentary’s team has interviewed Gosnell’s victims, those who participated in the raid, and many others who were involved in his arrest and trial. What makes these stories so powerful is that they were not in a “back-alley.” This is legal abortion and it is unsafe.
Authorities looked the other way for more than twenty years, while many complaints were filed and individuals reporting Gosnell’s facility. In the name of “privacy” and “no abortion regulation” organizations failed to act. “Why didn’t they intervene?” David asks, “Women and babies died because people looked the other way.”
