Join Women For: Orange County along with NWPC Orange County, Orange County NOW, Planned Parenthood, Newport Beach Women’s Democratic Club and Americans United as we come together to present a special screening of the documentary After Tiller.
After Tiller explores the aftermath of the highly-controversial practice of third-trimester abortions after the assassination of Dr. George Tiller in Kansas in 2009. The film relates the rapidly unfolding stories of these four doctors, all of whom were close colleagues of Dr. Tiller, who continue to work to keep this practice available despite becoming the new number-one targets of the pro-life movement. After Tiller presents these doctors confronting harassment from protesters, as well as challenges in their personal lives, all while balancing and examining the tough ethical questions and considerations inherent in the practice of third-trimester abortions.
This film was the winner of the Best Documentary Award at the Nashville Film Festival, honored among the Top 5 Documentaries of 2013 by the National Board of Review, and an Independent Spirit Award nominee for Best Documentary.
The hosts of this special one-time screening will hold a panel discussion immediately following the film.
