Since the assassination of Dr. George Tiller in Kansas in 2009, only four doctors in the United States continue to perform third-trimester abortions. These physicians, all colleagues of Dr. Tiller, sacrifice their safety and personal lives in the name of their fierce, unwavering conviction to help women. But for some in the pro-life movement, these doctors are “murderers” who must be stopped.
Offering audiences an unprecedented perspective, After Tiller is an intimate look into each of the four physicians’ private and professional struggles. Wrenching moments in the clinics, when they gently counsel distraught patients facing grievous losses, force us to step into the shoes of both practitioner and patient and confront the full complexity of each decision. Decades after Roe v. Wade legalized abortion, the issue remains one of the most volatile in our public sphere. After Tiller sensitively and artfully extricates the controversy from the ideological realm and humanizes those who have been demonized. – C. L.
Hyper-religious people, mostly Christians seem to think they are the soldiers of God and have a mission to fight against what they believe in theirs minds is murder. Their driving force if bigotry via the hate and oppression of women. This is taught to their own women. The oppression of the female and her body parts are a functioning power of religious fanatics.
Women are thought to be here for their men counterparts. As vessels to birth their babies and clean house. What the fck is the matter with these people?? Are we not in the 21st century?
I am not and will not be for your own personal exploitation. I am not and will not be only a source of nourishment, sexual pleasure, to feed you and to birth your children. I am more than those things. I am a WOMAN! A strong woman who sees more than having a man’s child and here to please your patriarchal dominancy.
