Meet the Doctors Who Provide Late-Term Abortions


After Tiller, a Sundance documentary about the four American doctors who still perform late-term abortions after the 2009 murder of their colleague Dr. George Tiller, opens in New York this weekend. According to the New York Times review, it won't change any minds in the abortion debate — which is too bad, because many of the small restrictions on early abortions (that force women to travel to seek late-term ones) are very much on the table. But for those who have already chosen sides, the documentary offers unprecedented access into the hardships faced by those upholding womens' right to choose when it is most urgent and most controversial.
