Anti-abortion groups criticize ‘After Tiller’ documentary

tillermovieAnti-abortion groups are upset about a documentary airing Monday at 9 p.m. on KPTS, Channel 8, and on other public broadcasting stations. “After Tiller” profiles the four doctors in the United States still openly performing late-term abortions after the the 2009 assassination of Wichita abortion doctor George Tiller. It also examines the reasons women seek late abortions. National Right to Life described the film as “an unabashed love story, so to speak, about the successors to a man who specialized in late, late abortions.” Judie Brown, president of American Life League, complained about tax dollars being used to broadcast a film that is “nothing short of pure propaganda intended to demonize the entire pro-life movement and drum up support for late-term abortion.”
