An anti-abortion film co-created by Donegal woman Ann McElhinney is to be shown by the Trump administration in the White House today.The movie, titled Gosnell: The Trial of America’s Biggest Serial Killer, is about US doctor Kermit Gosnell, who ran a secret abortion clinic.Journalist Ann McElhinney, who is from Bundoran and her husband, Tyrone man Phelim McAleer, crowd-funded the true crime drama film. The film has been noted for its graphic depiction of second- and third-trimester abortions. Dr Gosnell was prosecuted in 2013 for illegal late-term abortions and for first-degree murder of three babies that were born alive at his clinic. The film has come under fire by some critics, who see it as a pro-life statement against all legal abortions.Poltico.com reports that Gosnell is to be screened in the White House on Friday and around 150 guests from various anti-abortion and faith groups are invited to the event. President Trump is not expected to attend the screening.White House to screen Donegal woman’s controversial film was last modified: April 12th, 2019 by Staff WriterShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)

Greeks leaving the OSU Homecoming football game at halftime is as much a tradition as anything we have in Stillwater which is why I was surprised to see the outrage to what I thought was a fairly entrepreneurial idea on Saturday.#okstate should sell second half tickets to the Homecoming game to fill all the seats left empty by the greeks who leave after 30 minutes.— Pistols Firing (@pistolsguys) October 25, 2014Underneath that tweet is a string of irrationality that I can’t even begin to dissect. A lot of stuff like this really:https://twitter.com/ragedubya/status/526128451045326848Yeah, okay. This one was even [email protected] sorry man we are too tired from generating the majority of stillwater’s revenue for the year— Reavis Hammond (@ReavisHammond8) October 25, 2014Yes, surely it’s your chicken wire and tissue paper that hauls in all that cash for Payne County and not the fellas throwing the brown ball around on Saturday afternoons.You nailed it.This is mostly what I saw [email protected] you mean all the Greeks that work countless hours to bring in 80,000 extra people to Stillwater for a weekend? They’re tired.— Grant Heckenkemper (@GrantHeck) October 25, 2014I’ve heard a lot of inane arguments from college students but “I’m too tired to participate in a large social gathering where there’s a lot of alcohol and everybody is partying” is one I just can’t buy.Look, I like Homecoming. I think it’s great — a little bit overrated compared to every other Saturday in Stillwater but still great. I love the walkaround on Friday night and mostly I love the galvanization of the campus it inevitably leads to.But a freshman philosophy major could debunk the “we were tired so we left one of the six biggest social events in the town halfway before it was over” excuse.At halftime, of course, all the Homecoming awards are announced for the Greeks at Oklahoma State.A bunch of 20-year-olds celebrate that their tissue paper was arranged in a manner that appealed more emotively to judges than the tissue paper of their friends and then they leave.Student section right after Homecoming sweepstakes was announced. #okstate pic.twitter.com/jSMKUogUqh— Tara Zaloudek (@tarasuez) October 25, 2014The real reason they leave though isn’t because they’re tired and they have to get home.No, the real reason they leave is because there are a bunch of Greeks at the game who don’t normally go to football games to begin with just to find out who won all the awards.[1. I should add that my wife was one of these. There’s no problem with that. The problem is with the ridiculous arguments.]So there — I made the argument against you and your irrationality on Twitter forced me to hand you a defensible rebuttal for yourselves as well because you apparently can’t do it on your own.Leaving games early is fine, especially for folks who don’t normally come to games, but just own that.That’s why folks like Matt Fletcher were asking everyone to stay — because he knows a lot of people who don’t know the difference between Daxx Garman and Dak Prescott are sitting on the north side on Homecoming Saturday.To all #okstate fans: I know it’s hot and we’re all tired, but please remember both halves of this football game. We need you here to win!— Matt Fletcher (@matt_fletch) October 25, 2014Just don’t feed me this “had to get a nap in after two quarters, THERE’S NO WAY I COULD HAVE SURVIVED THE THIRD QUARTER I WAS ON THE BRINK OF PASSING OUT” silliness.That’s more ineffective than a Mike Yurcich-led offense.If you’re looking for the comments section, it has moved to our forum, The Chamber.
