Storyline

Sgt. Grevey and Det. Logan investigate a bombing at an abortion clinic that resulted in the death of 22 year-old Mary Donovan who was using the clinic's bathroom. In fact, Donovan was carrying false ID and it was she who used a basic pipe bomb to blow up the clinic. Donovan was a supporter of the Women for Life organization and the bomb materials are traced to Celeste McClure who likely made the bomb. They suspect Rose Schwimmer, head of the anti-abortion group of having ordered the attack. When they obtain startling new evidence, Schwimmer is charged with murder. Written by garykmcd

Goofs

After the detectives find a bag of ammonium nitrate, they are told that as a fertilizer it is good only on tropical plants. This is false; ammonium nitrate is useful in all agricultural parts of the world and is preferred in areas well outside the tropics (including Sweden). See more »

Quotes

Detective Mike Logan: Now, I don't care what you believe. Trying to prevent abortions by bombing goes way too far. I don't know how you can even *sit* here and defend it!
Det. Sgt. Maxwell "Max" Greevey: You and I both know they didn't mean to hurt anybody.
Detective Mike Logan: NO, I DON'T KNOW THAT, OKAY? Only an *idiot* thinks bombs don't hurt people.
