Okay, what is going on? While watching Law and Order tonight, the character of the new D.A., played by former Sen. Fred Thompson notes that he opposes Roe v. Wade because it is "bad law." He goes on to note that there is no "Right to Privacy" in the Constitution, and therefore Roe Vs. Wade was based on a legal fiction. All of this was said without Thompson wearing a T-shirt with a murdered fetus while waving around a bazooka. Somebody pinch me.

Of course, in the next scene, Sam Waterston's character makes it clear that the D.A. is absurdly wrong, but still, for a few seconds, a primetime TV show actually articulated a strong anti-Roe argument.

I'm starting to feel irrelevant here in Hollywood...
