UPDATE, 10/26, 10:15a: Thanks to moderator Bethany for finding the L&O “Dignity” episode online! Here ’tis…
Unable to watch Friday night’s “ripped from the headlines” Law & Order episode about the murder of an abortionist in church, I thought I’d view it on the Internet tonight.
Unfortunately, I found NBC does not air full episodes of L&O. I’ll have to see if past shows are available on cable t.v.
Meanwhile, pro-life reviews have been favorable, including comments on the post I wrote giving a heads up on the episode. Here’s a sample why, a longer clip made available by NBC, where a post-birth partial birth abortion (yes, that’s right) is detailed…
Comments from the L&O site:
Pro-abort reviews most interested me. Did NBC throw them bones, too, as I expected? Apparently not so much. Wrote Kate Harding at the liberal rag Salon…
On Friday night’s Law & Order, the abortion debate was represented by 2 separate, yet equally important, groups: The anti-choicers, who believe fetuses’ rights trump women’s, and the pseudo-pro-choicers, who are conveniently persuaded to agree with them by the end of the episode.
That sound? It’s my head exploding.
Kind of like a late-term baby being aborted, Kate? Not quite. Read Kate’s review for descriptions of more surprising pro-life apologetics in the show, even on minor rape:
What’s up? In a town bent on stirring controversy, does Hollywood now think the pro-life view is in, hot – the new gay?
Or perhaps NBC is trying to recoup lost mainstream viewers?
Or most likely, since L&O’s previous 2 episodes dealing with abortion slanted way left, this was its attempt at balance?
Whatever, I’ll take it.
