ok so the coincidences involved in the plot were a little too much. However it explored an interesting topic. And while I hate when they just 'rip headlines', I don't mind an exploration of a topical debate. What would homophobes do if they could tell the sexuality of a child? (though you'd think those kind of people wouldn't be willing have abortions either).
My favorite part was actually the exploration of legal technicalities around new technology. The question of whether "plain sight" applies to a tiny screen on a cell phone was interesting. Or if the detective can see the screen is he allowed to take that information by emailing it?
These are the kind of questions that really interest me and why I watch Law & Order. The last couple years were lacking in this, so it's nice to see a return to this.
