Dean Cain, best known for his roles as Superman in the TV series “Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman” and his more recent appearance in the faith film “God’s Not Dead,” when interviewed at the 2018 Values Voter Summit about one of his most recent film’s “Gosnell: The Trial of America’s Biggest Serial Killer,” said the film was “compelling” and suggested it gives a “different perspective” on abortion.

“I thought it was a really compelling story, a great character [Detective James Wood], and it’s certainly a story that needed to be told,” Dean Cain said about the film.


“It doesn’t matter to me where someone comes into this film – whether they’re pro-choice or pro-life – we don’t preach in the film,” Cain said when asked what he wanted viewers to take away from the film. “We don’t say, ‘Take one side or the other.’ We lay out what took place in this case, and if that changes someone’s perspective or makes them think about it, good for them. That’s a great thing.

“You know, people don’t want to talk about abortion itself,” continued Cain. “They’ll say, ‘women’s reproductive rights’ or this or that, but this— It’s a different perspective when you watch a film like this.”

The former Superman actor, when asked what inspired him to take part in “Gosnell: The Trial of America's Biggest Serial Killer,” responded, saying the film was “really, really well written,” a “great story by Andrew Klavan” – a “true story.”

Cain also acknowledged the “shocking” nature of what took place and said he had “heard very little about it in the media.”

Cain went on, “I had heard the name Gosnell. I was aware of something about an abortion clinic and killing live babies. But I didn’t really know the story because it hadn’t been covered in the media that much.”
