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  in February before an audience at the Brown Center on the MICA campus as part of the Maryland Film Festival/WYPR 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 LeRoyCarhart, Warren Hern, Shelley Sella, and Susan Robinson. "After Tiller" will screen on MPT-2 on Sunday, September 7th, at 10:30. You can also find it on iTunes and Netflix.

This segment originally aired on March 4, 2014.
