NEW YORK, New York (LifeSiteNews) – A New York City theater has backed out of its agreement to host a pro-life play called “Oh Gosnell: The Truth About Abortion.”

“Theatre Row had contractually agreed to host McAleer’s play and even took payment for the rental but decided to drop his latest project after deeming ‘Oh Gosnell’ ‘inappropriate for children,'” The Federalist reported, based on conversations with playwright, author, and movie producer Phelim McAleer.

The Surgi-Center, a Washington, D.C. abortion clinic infamous for offering late, second trimester abortions, and its owner, abortionist Cesare Santangelo, are at the center of a scandal involving possible violations of federal laws against partial-birth abortion and infanticide.

In an exclusive video interview with LifeSiteNews, Lauren Handy, the director of activism at Progressive Anti-Abortion Uprising (PAAU), told LifeSiteNew's Editor-in-Chief, John-Henry Westen that, with the help of a whistleblower, her organization rescued and properly buried the remains of about one hundred aborted babies from Santangelo's Surgi-Center.

But, five of the deceased babies were so large and so developed that they suspected the Surgi-Center of engaging in the illegal practices of partial-birth abortion or infanticide (i.e., killing the child after birth) à la Kermit Gosnell.

The shocked pro-lifers then gave the aborted babies to the police and brought the matter to the attention of the D.C. Medical Examiner's office. But, the Medical Examiner's office has refused to take any action, saying they will not perform autopsies on the babies.

Please SIGN and SHARE this urgent petition to the Department of Justice, asking them to launch an investigation into alleged violations of federal law by Santangelo and the D.C. Surgi-Center, under either the Partial Birth Abortion Act (2003) or the Born-Alive Infants Protection Act (2002). *Anyone - no matter where you reside - can sign this petition!

Unfortunately, the story doesn't end there.

Handy and eight of her fellow pro-life rescuers in PAAU are, themselves, now facing jail-time after being arrested by the FBI for conducting a traditional pro-life sit-in in October, 2020, at the very same abortion center from which the late-term deceased babies (mentioned above) were rescued.

Please note that the two events - the pro-life rescue in 2020 and the gruesome discovery of the five near-to-full-term babies in the Surgi-Center's "bio-medical waste" earlier this year - are almost one-and-a-half years apart.

Thus, Handy believes that their recent arrest is no coincidence...and, moreover, that the FBI is being used to create a smokescreen by arresting her and the other pro-lifers.

At the same time, the D.C. Medical Examiner's office does not seem interested in discovering the truth about the deaths of the five aborted babies and possible illegal partial-birth abortions or infanticide happening at the D.C. Surgi-Center.

Please SIGN and SHARE this urgent petition to the Department of Justice, asking them to launch an investigation into alleged violations of federal law by Santangelo and the D.C. Surgi-Center, under either the Partial Birth Abortion Act (2003) or the Born-Alive Infants Protection Act (2002).

The DOJ press release claims that the pro-lifers: "engaged in a conspiracy to create a blockade at the reproductive health care clinic to prevent the clinic from providing, and patients from receiving, reproductive health services."

But, commenting on the arrest, Lauren Handy stated: "Media reports have stated that we ‘invaded’ the abortion center and ‘disrupted’ women from exercising their ‘reproductive rights’. No, that is not what we did."

"We entered the clinic and sought to love the women who were already there for their abortion procedures," Handy said. "We tried to offer them help so they would choose life. We non-violently defended the unborn who were about to be exterminated – the innocent, the most vulnerable, killed in horrific acts of violence and treated as so much trash."

Tireless pro-life activist Dr. Monica Miller, the director of Citizens for a Pro-Life Society and leader of Red Rose Rescue, told LifeSiteNews that "this is the first time any of them are facing federal charges. That the rescuers were hunted down by FBI agents is unprecedented in the history of pro-life activism."

All of this...possibly...for discovering five near-or-at-term aborted babies at Cesare Santangelo's D.C. Surgi-Center, and for seeking to give justice and dignity to the murdered babies.

The truth now needs to come out!

Please SIGN and SHARE this urgent petition to the Department of Justice, asking them to launch an investigation into alleged violations of federal law by Santangelo and the D.C. Surgi-Center, under either the Partial Birth Abortion Act (2003) or the Born-Alive Infants Protection Act (2002).

Thank you for SIGNING and SHARING this urgent petition!

McAleer and his wife, Ann McElhinney, wrote a book and produced a movie about Philadelphia abortionist Kermit Gosnell, who in 2013 was found guilty of first-degree murder for killing infants outside the womb.

The theatre production is a “verbatim play about the horrors of abortion” with actual lines from the Gosnell trial. McAleer specifically wanted to run it at Theatre Row the same time as a pro-abortion “comedy” from J.J. Abrams and Ilana Glazer.

“They laugh about it – we tell the truth about it,” the play’s website explains. “Gosnell was a serial killer abortion doctor who was convicted of killing babies and women patients.”

“Oh Gosnell is taken verbatim from Kermit Gosnell’s trial transcript. ABC News said he could be ‘America’s most prolific serial killer,'” the play’s website notes. “He is currently serving several life sentences.”

McAleer told Fox News that the theatre’s claim about “inappropriate” content does not stand up, as the company has previously hosted a show called “H*tlers Tasters” about “the way girls navigate sexuality, friendship, patriotism and poison during the Third Reich.”

Theatre Row is “very happy sexualizing girls, but they’re not happy having an honest, artistic exploration about the issues around abortion,” McAleer said.

A letter from McAleer’s attorneys to the theatre company said legal action is on the table.

McAleer has secured a new location for this play.

“The play will run from April 29 through May 15, with the official opening night on May 5 at the Chain Studio Theater,” Fox News reported.
