Lana Wilson and Martha Shane’s sensitive and extremely moving documentary, After Tiller, focuses on the stories of those left behind after the assassination of Dr. George Tiller in Kansas in 2009 – one of the few doctors providing legal third-trimester abortions for women in the USA. This is a story of people who risk their lives every day for their work, many of whom were close colleagues of Dr. Tiller and now battle to maintain this service in the face of increasing provocation and harassment from the pro-life movement. Followed by a discussion and Q&A session with Dr Karthik Srinivasan (International Planned Parenthood Federation) and Patricia Lohr (British Pregnancy Advisory Services), chaired by Kerry Abel (Abortion Rights).
Following the screening and panel discussion, Abortion Rights will host an informal reception to continue the conversation. RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org and hold on to your film ticket for a free glass of wine at the bar!
