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 exploration of one of the most incendiary topics of our time, and they’ve done so in an informative, thought-provoking, and compassionate way.

“Well contextualized and sensitively shot with extraordinary access, the pic reflects the personal, moral and ethical struggles of the doctors as well as their patients, and deserves the widest possible audience.” – Alissa Simon, Variety
More about Feminist Freethinkers of NY:
Returning from Center for Inquiry's Women in Secularism conference, we perceived a need for a local group supporting women in the secular and humanist community of NYC. Safe spaces coupled with open house discussions are invaluable to a comfortable and inclusive environment.
Our group will meet to discuss women's issues and the role of women in the secular and humanist community, as well as host social activities that encourage a supportive and vibrant community. We will also find ways to support local and national initiatives tackling gender equality and women's rights.
Feminist Freethinkers of NY is cognizant of the intersections between gender, race, sexuality, class, and ability, and strives to maintain a conscious and inviting space for all.
