I've been watching the episode tonight. It's surprisingly balanced. They stole the story line from the Chicago area where the late-term baby was left to die after initially surviving the abortion.
It's been moving and again, surprising balanced in it's representation of the pro-life movement.
I haven’t watched L&O in a few years. To me the best years were the first several.

I dvr’d it to watch later. Let me know if I should watch it or erase it.

Sounds to me it’s more about the murder of Tiller than abortion itself.

Can’t the show’s writers come up with some original concepts for storylines? Just asking.

Always love the approach that people are hypocrites if the are for the death penalty, but against abortion. As though the small matter of innocence doesn't exist.
I've been confronted on this before and simply explained that I am 100% consistent. No innocent person should be put to death by another. Amazing how many blank stares that I've gotten in return.

(No one should die on a gov. waiting list., or go broke because the gov. has dictated their salary.)
how about a special 2 hour episode where a guy that doesnt meet a certain Constitutional requirement becomes President. Then when when the truth is revealed all the legal whacky hi-jinks that ensue. Heck, make it a season long story arc.

I stopped watching L&O after the SVU segment where a pregnant woman was killed and the supposedly Catholic, pro-life male character (Stabler) made the comment that “abortion is different, that’s the mother’s choice.”

I saw a little of it. Not bad.
I have to say Richard Thomas has aged well.
