Event Summary: After Tiller Film Screening

On September 25, 2014, WGH held a screening of the award-winning documentary “After Tiller” by Martha Shane and Lana Wilson. The film explores the topic of third-trimester abortions in the wake of the 2009 assassination of practitioner Dr. George Tiller leaving behind only four doctors in the United States who perform this procedure. The screening was followed by a panel discussion with Deborah Bartz, Elizabeth Janiak, Jennifer O’Donnell, and Alicia Ely Yamin and was introduced by Ana Langer with diverse global and domestic perspectives from medicine, public health and policy. Norma Swenson helped to moderate the discussion.
