Film Screening: After Tiller - John R. Park Debate Society Special Event


The John R. Park Debate Society (the University of Utah Forensics Team) is pleased to announce its public event for Spring 2014. This spring the Debate Society will be hosting a special event. The event will feature a film screening of the documentary, “After Tiller.” The film, which was an official selection at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival, explores issues related to abortion in the United States and specifically focuses on the four doctors in the United States still performing late-term (third trimester) abortions. Filmmaker Magazine called the film, “the most compelling and important documentary of the year,” and The Hollywood Reporter observed that, “Whether one is pro-life, pro-choice, or without an opinion, After Tiller provides personal insight into a heart-wrenching, complex reality.”

What: “After Tiller”: A film screening presented by the John R. Park Debate Society
Who: Special Presentation after the film by Planned Parenthood of Utah
When: Wednesday, January 22, 2014 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM

Following the event, Heather Stringfellow, Vice President for Public Policy at Planned Parenthood Association of Utah, will conduct an information session and discussion of issues related to the film. Audience members are welcome to participate and encouraged to join a civil conversation about a complex and important issue.

The John R. Park Debate Society at the University of Utah is an intercollegiate competitive debate team. Founded in 1869, the organization has hosted biannual forums for the past several years in an effort to educate the public and to facilitate civil dialogue about contentious political and social issues.

The event is free and open to the public. Regular campus parking regulations will be in effect.
