On Monday, the PBS series "POV" will air "After Tiller." The show's web page promoting the film describes it as "a
deeply humanizing and probing portrait of the only four doctors in the
United States still openly performing third-trimester abortions in the
wake of the 2009 assassination of Dr. George Tiller in Wichita, Kansas." Who knew that these murderers
of late-term pre-born babies — Dr. LeRoy Carhart, Dr. Warren Hern, Dr.
Susan Robinson and Dr. Shelley Sella — could be such great people?
Many of the usual suspects are involved in developing, promoting and
underwriting the film. Taxpayers are by definition partially on the
hook, given that $445 million for fiscal 2014 was allocated to the Corporation for Public Broadcasting in October of
American Life League Demands PBS Cancel ‘After Tiller’
Late-Term Abortion Propaganda to Air on Labor Day
Washington, DC — American Life League, the nation's largest,
grassroots Catholic pro-life education organization, is demanding that
the taxpayer-funded PBS cancel its Labor Day showing of “After Tiller.”
“’After Tiller’ is nothing short of pure propaganda intended to
demonize the entire pro-life movement and drum up support for late-term
abortion,” said Judie Brown, president of American Life League. “Why
are pro-life tax dollars being used to paint a sympathetic picture of
abortionists who stab babies in the base of their skulls just moments
before they are born? Where is the sympathy for the babies, whose brains
are being sucked out by vacuum machines by these abortionists?”
“After Tiller” was funded in large part by pro-abortion groups
and lists Planned Parenthood and NARAL as primary outreach partners.
According to Media Impact Partners, the film’s production team’s goals
include changing the view of Americans in favor of late-term abortion
providers and against legislation that bans late-term abortions. The
filmmakers also hope that medical students will request abortion
training be made available in their curricula.
“Would PBS ever run a puff piece that was funded by the KKK in
order to sanitize and normalize racism?” asked Brown. “Shame on PBS!
This has no business airing on a publicly funded network.”
