Pro-life activists are up in arms after the taxpayer-funded Public Broadcasting System (PBS) announced it will air the pro-abortion documentary “After Tiller” – named for George Tiller, the notorious late-term abortionist who boasted of killing more than 60,000 unborn babies before he was gunned down in 2009.
The controversial film, set to air on Labor Day, follows four remaining abortionists who are among just a handful who admit publicly to performing abortions after 24 weeks – the generally accepted age of viability in the United States.
