The fatal shooting of Kansas abortion provider George Tiller made headlines in 2009, and sparked a national debate about a woman’s right to choose. Just after the four-year anniversary of his death, Investigation Discovery chose to tell Dr. Tiller’s story, as well as the story of his killer, Scott Roeder, as part of their series Fatal Encounters. In the episode titled Deadly Conviction, I play Dr. Tiller during his younger years, when he was coming to grips with his feelings about abortion and the situations that his female patients found themselves in a pre-Roe v. Wade world.
The episode airs on Investigation Discovery on Thursday, June 27th at 9:00 p.m. (and will be repeated frequently thereafter). You can find your local Investigation Discovery channel here.
