After Tiller follows doctors in Nebraska as restrictive new anti-abortion laws force him to close his clinic and attempt to open a new one. After just a few minutes of watching these doctors consult with colleagues and patients, two prevalent anti-abortion myths can be completely dispelled.
Later-term abortion incites emotion and controversy like few other medical procedures, and the anti-choice movement has not been reluctant to exploit both the passions and misunderstandings surrounding this procedure for their own gain.
I am struck by how art and politics seem to have traded places in Missouri. The documentary After Tiller represents everything that is messy and complicated about the world, while politics here seem to exist in a fantasy world.
