Network TV back to normal

After the Today Show with the "you can have your baby even though you have cancer" and Law & Order with "Population control freaks have no right to kill minority women," network TV is back to normal. CSI's plot revolved around the murder of a young woman who'd adopted a frozen embryo and carried him to term. All well and good -- except they were very careful to give the snippy redhead a couple of lines about how historically the Catholic church didn't consider embryos human until 40 days or quickening. It was needless editorializing that did nothing to further the plot; it was just there to counter the obvious selflessness of the young women adopting abandoned frozen embryos. So, we're back to normal on the networks.
