Episode 6 : George Tiller (Part 1)
By What's the Story? Sounds
In 1973 the Supreme Court’s landmark Roe v Wade judgement makes abortion legal in the United States. Its a practice that has considerable controversy attached to it but Dr George Tiller firmly believes it be a vital option for women in need, opening a clinic in Wichita, Kansas. Soon, his work attracts the attention of the religious right who picket his business and intimidate his staff. Tiller isn’t one to run from a fight and before long, finds himself a central figure in the struggle for women’s right to choose, a position he never sought but a cause he’s willing to fight and ultimately die for.
