EDIT

A routine investigation into a woman's death leads Briscoe and Logan to a fertility doctor guilty of unethical practices, but who apparently cannot be touched because of confidentiality rules, and his patients' reluctance to talk.

      • This episode appears to be ripped from the headlines of the Dr. Cecil Jacobson case. Jacobson operated a fertility clinic in Virginia, and in March of 1992 was sentenced to five years in prison after it was learned that he inseminated seventy-five of his female patients with his own sperm. Jacobson had led the women to believe they were being inseminated with the sperm of anonymous donors who shared many physical characteristics with their own husbands. He also led many of his patients to believe they had become pregnant and miscarried when in fact they had never actually been pregnant. The case was also immortalized in a 1992 Saturday Night Live sketch with John Goodman in the role of Dr. Cecil Jacobson.
