In the US, late-term abortions can be lethal – for the doctors performing them

AFTER TILLER is a film about late-term abortions in the US in the wake of the 2009 murder of practitioner Dr. George Tiller. The procedure is now performed by only four doctors in the United States - all former colleagues of 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 view on a highly controversial subject, and they've done so in an matter-of-fact, thought-provoking, and compassionate way.
