Notorious abortion doctor Kermit Gosnell, serving a life sentence in prison for killing babies who were born live in his Philadelphia clinic, says he delivered actor Will Smith and has reached out to him to try to get him to aid his cause, The Daily Mail reported.

Filmmaker and author Phelim McAleer shared with the Mail a copy of a letter Gosnell said he sent to Smith in November.

"I'm fond of asserting that there could never be a Men in Black if I had dropped you on your head," Gosnell wrote in the letter.

According to the imprisoned doctor, he was working as a resident at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital in 1968 when Smith's mother, Caroline Smith, went into labor. Her regular doctor, Leopold Lowenberg, was stuck in traffic and unable to make it to the hospital in time, so Gosnell said Caroline Smith's mother Helen Bright, a recovery room nurse at the hospital, chose Gosnell to do the delivery instead.

Gosnell told Smith in the letter he had attempted to write him twice before about helping his son, who also is an actor, but his son had prevented him.

Gosnell said he decided to finally send a letter to Smith because of the actor's indication he has an interest in entering politics.

"There was further encouragement from your respect of your grandmother's influence on your career," he wrote. "Perhaps my only credential of importance is that Mrs. Bright would have been one of my most fervent advocates. There are reasons that she chose Dr. G to deliver you when Dr. Lowenberg was in a traffic jam. There were eleven other residents and more than twenty Jefferson Obstetricians."

Bright would have said Gosnell, as a minority physician, was targeted for political gain, and is not a "media monster," he continued. "And she may have agreed with my perspective that there are underlying foundations beyond sanctity for life. Progressives oppose the low wages of an under-class and are not threatened by the 'Browning of America.'"

McAleer told the Mail that Gosnell believes he was wrongly convicted because many in the prosecutor's office were Catholic, and their faith teaches abortion to be murder.

In 2011, Gosnell and members of his staff were charged with eight counts of murder, 24 felony counts of performing illegal abortions beyond Pennsylvania's 24-week limit and 227 misdemeanor counts of violating the state's 24-hour consent law. He made a deal with prosecutors in 2013 to plea to three counts of murder to avoid the death penalty.

McAleer, co-author of the book "Gosnell: The Untold Story of America's Most Prolific Serial Killer," with his wife Ann McElhinney, told the Mail he believes Gosnell because everything he told them during interviews for the book checks out.

"He has a huge memory for details," McAleer said.
