Lois meets up with an old friend, Naomi Robinson, at a college reunion event. Naomi requests Lois to do her a favor and to come to her house to discuss the matter. After Peter jumps to a series of conclusions about the "favor", Lois is asked to become a surrogate mother, as Naomi and her husband are unable to conceive a child of their own. Although Peter is upset, Lois agrees and the in vitro fertilization is performed. Peter tries several attempts to attack Lois and cause her to have a miscarriage, before confronting her one-on-one. Lois stands her ground, but then she and Peter learn that the Robinsons were killed in a car accident. Lois is devastated and, after a consultation with a family planning counselor, ultimately decides to terminate the pregnancy. However, as Peter is leaving the clinic, he is accosted by anti-abortion activists urging him to change his mind about aborting the baby; again, Lois stands her ground. That night, Peter and Lois argue their points abortion. Written by
