Baltimore County native Martha Shane's documentary film After Tiller follows the four doctors in the country who openly perform late term abortions.  We talked with her  before an audience at the Brown Center on the campus of MICA as part of the Maryland Film Festival Spotlight Series.  You can learn more about the Film Festival here.

The title refers to George Tiller, a doctor who performed abortions and was shot and killed in 2009.   The film follows the daily work of doctors LeRoy Carhart, Warren Hern, Shelley Sella, and Susan Robinson. After Tiller is now available through iTunes and Video on Demand.
