Kermit Gosnell is a former doctor at the Women's Medical Society in Philadelphia currently serving life in prison on charges that he killed three infants during attempted abortion procedures. Now, the so-called "Baby Killer" is reaching out to a Hollywood megastar that he helped deliver 48 years ago for help: Will Smith.
Gosnell has reached out to Smith to ask him to take up his case. "I’m fond of asserting that there could never be a Men in Black if I had dropped you on your head,’ Gosnell, now 76, wrote in a letter he sent to Smith according to the Daily Mail. "You're tentative plans for a political career, in a recent interview, provided the impetus for this communication. There was further encouragement from your respect of your grandmother's influence on your career. Perhaps my only credential of importance is that Mrs. Bright would have been my most fervent advocates."
Gosnell, who agreed to a life sentence without parole if prosecutors did not seek the death penalty, has been a villain of the pro-life movement for years, and this most recent news is giving conservatives another opportunity to use his crimes as an anti-abortion symbol.

@THR Tell Will Smith he needs to stay a million miles away from Gosnell the butcher. Gosnell is begging him for help, he owes him nothing.— GBigs Angle (@GBigsAngle) February 21, 2017
I suppose though, we should probably take anything Kermit Gosnell says with a grain of salt.— Amy Lutz (@amylutz4) February 21, 2017
