I was wrong. It wasn't Connie who was initially against the late term abortion practice, it was Cutter. Nice. I like when my preconceived ideas about the characters are challenged.
No surprise to me that Bernard was against the practice, but we did learn something important about his past. He being (ala Olivia Benson) the product of an unwanted pregnancy.
I thought Richard Thomas did a beautiful, understated job as the defense attorney. Actually I love that this show is so understated, unlike SVU with all of its histrionics. The Enny's, however, usually go to the hysterical performances. The media is already proclaiming Rosie Perez' too over the top performance on SVU as a probable Emmy winner. Yuck.

I need to re-read the actual Roe v. Wade decision before I can comment on this episode. While "Dignity" suggests that in light of advances in medical science Roe v. Wade should be revisited I fear the scenario ignored critical women's rights issues in its focus on third-trimester abortions.
Just saw this on TNT. I was impressed with the way they seemed to present all sides fairly. Also thought it was neat that the murdered abortionist's wife was also the wife of the murdered abortionist on Third Horseman from LOCI.
