Film Screening: After Tiller

April 9, 2014 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm  |  Communications, Studio C, Room 150


after_tiller_xlgthe film explores the issue of late-term abortion in the U.S. in the aftermath of the murder of Dr. George Tiller in Kansas in 2009, one of the very few doctors to perform this procedure. We will actually have one of the physicians featured in the film, Dr. Shelley Sella, in attendance at the screening and she will answer questions afterwards.

After Tiller intimately explores the highly controversial subject of third-trimester abortions in the wake of the 2009 assassination of practitioner Dr. George Tiller. The procedure is now performed by only four doctors in the United States, all former colleagues of Dr. Tiller, who risk their lives every day in the name of their unwavering commitment toward their patients. Directors Martha Shane and Lana Wilson have created a moving and unique look at one of the most incendiary topics of our time, and they’ve done so in an informative, thought-provoking, and compassionate way.


Space is limited. If you would like to attend, please make a free reservation using this link to Brown Paper Tickets:
