After Tiller Review

Image for After Tiller

When Kansas doctor George Tiller, one of the only physicians in America prepared to carry out late-term abortions, was gunned down during a church service in 2009, his murder sent shock waves through the medical profession. This documentary follows four doctors LeRoy Carhart, Warren Hern, Shelley Sella, and Susan Robinson who continue to perform the procedure.


Equitably contrasting the anguish of women seeking third-trimester abortions and the rigidity of their religious detractors, this is a sensitive, sincere portrait of the four American doctors willing to perform the procedure following the murder of colleague George Tiller.

A laudably even-handed examination of a highly charged subject.
