After Tiller: Meet the only four doctors in the U.S. who still perform third-trimester abortions....

•, By Daily Mail Reporter

Only four doctors in the U.S. offer third-trimester abortions, knowing they risk their own lives every day to carry out such controversial procedures.

These doctors are the subject of a documentary screened at the Sundance film festival last weekend, forty years after the legalization of abortion in the U.S. and four years after Dr Tiller.

Physician George Tiller was a prominent practitioner of late-term abortions shot dead by an extremist in 2009.

The documentary After Tiller is named for him and focuses on the few remaining doctors who perform abortions in the third trimester of a pregnancy. The Supreme Court granted states the right to limit abortions in the final three months of a pregnancy.
