Introduction by Beverly Whipple: Executive Director, Cedar River Clinics
Since the assassination of Dr. George Tiller in Kansas in May 2009, there are only four American doctors left who openly provide third-trimester abortions. After Tiller paints a complex, compassionate portrait of these physicians, who have become the new number-one targets of the anti-abortion movement. Weaving together in-depth interviews, intimate scenes from inside the clinics, and the moving stories of several patients whose lives are at a crossroads, the film illuminates the experiences of women who seek late abortions and the reasons why they do so.
"Whether one is pro-life, pro-choice or without an opinion on the issue, After Tiller provides personal insight into a heart-wrenching, complex reality. The film does not pretend to be an answer to the abortion controversy but rather a presentation of the people who are demonized, correctly or incorrectly, for their actions." - The Hollywood Reporter
"Intimate and heartfelt…Brings an emotional clarity to an issue in which every nuanced turn of phrase has been made politically complicated." – The Los Angeles Times
