Storyline

The SVU team is put on the case of a woman who has been in a coma for 14 months and is found to be 7 weeks pregnant. After going though many suspects, they focus on the patient's doctor. They discover that he is impregnating comatose female patients with a rich donor's sperm in order to get embryonic stem cells that are biologically compatible. The problem for the ADA is that laws are not on her side in prosecuting such crimes. Written by Tawny

While discussing the baby's paternity it is mentioned that the baby's blood type is Type AB and the mother's blood type is Type A. Wong concludes that the father's blood type must be Type B. This isn't necessarily true as the father's blood type could be either Type B or Type AB. See more »

Quotes

Olivia Benson: I don't get it. Why would Davis Langley want custody of that baby? Guilt?
Alexandra Cabot: Survival. If he's granted custody, along with the baby comes the umbilical cord.
Detective Elliot Stabler: I've cut four of them, it's not exactly something you save for the scrapbook.
Alexandra Cabot: Cord blood is chock full of stem cells.
Olivia Benson: Half of which will be his perfect genetic match.

Downright Ghoulish
2 March 2015 | by See all my reviews

The rape of two comatose female patients brings the SVU squad to a facility for those people, a facility run by Dr. Bruce Davison. The usual thought would be that some necrophiliac was finding a new way of getting his jollies. In fact they find one played by Steven Key, but he doesn't turn out to be the doer.

Davison has gotten big bucks from billionaire Philip Bosco to do research into stem cells, banned recently in New York at that time. The issues are still controversial. Bosco suffers from Parkinson's Disease and having had a grandmother who had that, plus we've such celebrity victims as Michael J. Fox and Katharine Hepburn deal with it as well.

There's no question that what Bosco wants to do is something downright ghoulish. And he might get away with it.
