Law and Order - SVU ticked me off last night

Did anyone else watch SVU last night and find it just a little distasteful?
Okay, more than a little distasteful.

As a woman and a mother I have a pretty big issue with the whole concept of "let's freeze my eggs so when I die in Iraq you can still have a baby with me, and a part of me will last forever." I don't want children to remind me of Travis or to be my little Travis if he dies - I want children for the sake of each child, for who they are as individuals and expressions of love.

And please, someone tell me this is wrong (and granted I got it from a tv show) but is the law in NY really that a baby is not a person until he takes his first breath?
