FDL Movie Night: After Tiller

By: Monday August 25, 2014 4:59 pm

After Tiller follows the lives of the last four remaining doctors in the United States who perform late-term abortions, those in which the fetus is over 25 weeks old. Two of these doctors who worked with Dr. Tiller at his Wichita clinic — Dr. Shelley Sella, and Dr. Susan Robinson — begin working at a clinic in New Mexico. Meanwhile, Tiller’s friend, Dr.Warren Hern continues to maintain his practice in Boulder, Colorado, and Nebraska-based Dr. LeRoy Carhart is eventually forced out of Nebraska by legislation.

Filmmakers Martha Shane and Lana Wilson explore the lives of these four doctors–their histories, their practices and what led them to perform third trimester abortions, which account for only 1% of all abortions performed in the United States.
