This police/court room drama is based on actual information on Dr. Kermit Gosnell (played by Earl Billings) who for decades ran a Philadelphia inner-city abortion clinic. In 2010, Philadelphia Police Detectives Wood (Dean Cain) and Stark (Alfonzo Rachel), with DEA and FBI agents, raid the clinic for evidence of illegal prescription drug sales. They are shocked by the clinic's filthy conditions, bags of aborted fetuses in hallways, and fetal body parts stored in a refrigerator. Interviewing clinic workers, they learn: patients are given anesthesia by untrained assistants; one patient died on the operating table from an anesthesia overdose; abortions were performed on babies older than 24 weeks; and some babies were delivered alive, after which Dr. Gosnell cut their spinal cord with scissors.

Much of the film taken from actual witness and trial transcripts. I thought it was very well done. The "pro-choice" prosecutor wasn't intending to make a case against abortion--people can claim the film has a "pro-life" agenda but it's easy to see it doesn't. The only side that made it about abortion was the doctor's defense. A good movie in terms of acting, filmmaking, pacing, and a solid storyline.
It's a tough subject, but no gory pictures. Teens and up should have no issues seeing this movie.
