Law & Order:Criminal Intent-The Third Horseman
12 November 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Pro-abortion episode of CI about an abortion doctor who gets rifle-shot while in his living room with his daughter, the marksman quite efficient from a major distance. There's a website with the names of doctors and the addresses of their clinics, and a slash appears through the name of the one who was shot..a kill list which is protected by the First Amendment. Besides the belief that murdering doctors saves babies, Denis(Robert Stanton), the shooter, could actually have other reasons for deciding to kill..a past incident in his life in regards to a former pregnant love who got an abortion because she didn't want the life he felt they should have. The abortion issue takes center stage as we see how Eames is stressed about a type of religious fanaticism which motivates acts of violence. Goren has a great scene where he appeals to an anti-violence protester for the whereabouts of Denis, hoping to get an understanding as to his mindset. Interesting friction develops between Eames and Carver over the issue of abortion as well. Eames even asks how Goren feels and he does believe that a life is full of uncertainty, people have options and that abortion should be one of them. It's quite obvious how these writers stand on the issue of abortion, Christian beliefs seemingly held with a bit of contempt..not so much is the belief that life is sacred explored(this is often the underlying issue anti-abortion protesters challenge towards those who decide to perform or have them)as the questioning of using violence for violence. In this episode's case, though, Goren learns that perhaps Denis is targeting certain individuals for the child he was denied, so it does goes beyond just the abortion debate..the idea that Denis substitutes "It's God's will" or "I'm a soldier in God's army" in the place of other ulterior motives, like "wounded pride."
