NEW YORK ( - The New York Times (NYT) is reportedly blacklisting a best-selling, pro-life book.

Gosnell: The Untold Story of America's Most Prolific Serial Killer sold out in three days on Amazon and is the fourth best-selling and hardcover, nonfiction book on their list but still didn't make the NYT bestseller list.

This book investigates Kermit Gosnell, the infamous Philadelphia abortionist, who was convicted of murdering three babies; he ran an abortion clinic deemed a "house of horrors."

In an article on Gosnell's crimes, the Washington Post reported, "Gosnell had a simple solution for the unwanted babies he delivered: he killed them. [Only] he didn't call it that. He called it 'ensuring fetal demise.' The way he ensured fetal demise was by sticking scissors into the back of the baby's neck and cutting the spinal cord."

Concerning his abortion clinic, the Philadelphia District Attorney's office stated, "The walls appeared to be urine-splattered. The procedure tables were old, and one had a ripped plastic cover. Suction tubing, which was used for abortion procedures — and doubled as the only available suction source for resuscitation — was corroded."

It's clear that this is a blatant fake list in a fake-news newspaper.

Ann McElhinney, the co-author of the book in question, remarked:

This is shocking, that the cover-up of the Gosnell story is continuing even after the mainstream media were so criticized for failing to cover the trial. It's clear that this is a blatant fake list in a fake-news newspaper. It's not only an insult to the people who have bought this book but an insult to the readers of the New York Times who buy the newspaper and think they are getting the truth about book sales across America but instead get false facts disguised as a neutral list.

Regnery Publishing, a conservative publishing firm, claims the book should be on the NYT bestseller list behind The Magnolia Story, which has sold 10,000 books, while Gosnell has sold 7,664 volumes.

Phelim McAleer, co-author of the Gosnell book, commented, "This is a numerical fact. We were the fourth largest and hardcover, nonfiction book last week. I have seen the figures. This is a fake list from a fake newspaper who has not learned the news about their fake influence on this earth."

According to many conservative critics, this is the latest example of the NYT's pro-abortion bias. In it's coverage of the March for Life (MFL), the NYT came under fire for referring to the MFL as an "anti-abortion" march.

Father Thomas Petri tweeted on January 12, "Your bias is showing. Why don't you call it what its organizers do? It's the March for Life."

In another example of this bias, a NYT headline on January 26 stated, "Pence Will Speak at Anti-Abortion Rally." McAleer further remarked:

This whole thing is doubly ironic. And that is because a portion of the book looks at The New York Times' bias in covering the original story and how they refused to cover it, how they tried to cover it up. And now they are trying to cover up the book that is exposing them covering up the story. We have to work 10 times harder than the liberal favorites at The New York Times, and so we need people to go buy the book and get the numbers up and embarrass them. And force them to put this book on the list and that the cover-up stops now.

The Catechism of the Catholic Church (CCC) strongly condemns the sin of abortion stating,

Human life must be respected and protected absolutely from the moment of conception. From the first moment of his existence, a human being must be recognized as having the rights of a person — among which is the inviolable right of every innocent being to life. Since the first century the Church has affirmed the moral evil of every procured abortion. This teaching has not changed and remains unchangeable. Direct abortion, that is to say, abortion willed either as an end or a means, is gravely contrary to the moral law.
