On March 23, Texas Values hosted a special screening of the award-winning documentary 3801 Lancaster: American Tragedy at Dallas Studio Movie Grill. Policy analyst (and my good friend) Nicole Hudgens, who travels throughout Texas and the nation on behalf of Texas Values’ pro-life and pro-family mission, held a very engaging Q&A session afterwards.
The film is about late-term abortionist, Kermit Gosnell, who now sits behind bars for committing manslaughter and 3 counts of murder.
Parts of the film were used in an amicus brief submitted to the Supreme Court in the recent Whole Women’s Health v. Hellerstedt case. It urged the court to uphold the Texas HB-2 law that requires abortionists to have admitting privileges to local hospitals and also for abortion clinics to have the same health and safety standards as ambulatory surgical facilities.
I am hopeful that 3801 Lancaster will continue to be significant in changing hearts and minds on the abortion issue. Whether we are pro-life or pro-abortion, this film shows that we must put aside politics so that we can do what’s best for women’s health and safety and ensure that cases like Kermit Gosnell never happen again.
