Synopsis: Dr. Andrew Rynne was the first doctor to perform vasectomies in Ireland in the 1970s and 1980s; he estimates that he has performed over 35,000. This distinction did not come without controversy in the strict Catholic climate surrounding him, but Dr. Rynne was determined to act against the church by selling condoms without a prescription, which forced the national government to change policy. In 1990, he survived being shot by a gunman who entered his surgery – a man who he would later meet and forgive.
Director: Paul Webster.
Genre: Short Documentary
