Directed by Wesleyan alumni Martha Shane and Lana Wilson, After Tiller depicts the stories of these four doctors who are fighting to keep this service available and the incredible risk and struggle they confront on a daily basis. The screening will be followed by a Q&A session with Martha and Lana.

After Tiller

Happy New Year! If you haven't yet, you should definitely check out After Tiller, a documentary by Wesleyan's own Martha Shane and Lana Wilson. We are going to collaborate with Rho Ep, Wesleyan Doula Project, and hopefully more groups to put on a screening this semester!

"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."
