  • Law and Order Special Victims Unit!

    Jennifer Fulton is found raped and attacked in the restaurant that she owns with her husband. When she identifies a young man that she thinks was responsible, the Detectives of the Special Victims Unit find that he in fact was not the attacker, but her husband was. When Jennifer attempts to bring charges against her husband, they find that she is pregnant, and wishes to have an abortion. When her husband takes her to court in order to prevent her from having the abortion, she changes her mind and decides to see the pregnancy to the end. After that, her husband takes her back to court to ensure that she is locked up and can no longer harm the child with her alcohol addiction. Jennifer is ordered to stay sober until the baby is born, but when she breaks that ruling she finds herself facing the possibility of being locked up until she gives birth.

    This is a good episode. It is nice to see what lengths people will go to in order to help an unborn child. It makes me wonder why they don't give more rights to an unborn child.
