American Life League 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 National Abortion Rights Action League 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."
