During a religious pro-life protest outside an abortion clinic, an anonymous caller reports a bomb threat. The patients and staff are evacuated just before the explosion, but the bomber fails to escape in time, and is killed. The police are initially unable to identify her after finding that her ID was fake. Tensions appear between Greevey, who disapproves of abortion; and Logan, who thinks it's a woman's human right. They eventually identify the bomber as Mary Donovan, who may have been involved with an anti-abortion group led by Rose Schwimmer.

Schwimmer has an alibi for the time of the bombing: she was drinking tea with her friend Celeste [=McClure=]. It is soon discovered that [=McClure=] owns a special type of fertilizer that was used to make the bomb, and the fingerprints on the bag match those found on a fragment of the bomb. [=McClure=], who wants to go to jail so she can be seen as a martyr for the pro-life movement, refuses to implicate Schwimmer. Fingerprints from Mary's boyfriend, Patrick Dunne, are found on her fake ID. Patrick is eventually forced to admit that Mary went to the clinic for an abortion and he gave her the ID so their strictly religious families would not find out.

With the truth revealed that Mary did not deliberately bring the bomb into the clinic, [=McClure=] now faces a minimum 15-year sentence for second-degree murder. She accepts a plea deal to testify against Schwimmer. [=McClure=] had brought the bomb to the tearoom where she was seen with Schwimmer, and called in the bomb threat whilst Schwimmer went to deliver the bomb. Against the advice of her lawyer and the judge, Schwimmer insists on testifying on her own behalf. She proudly admits to planting the bomb on Mary, and delivers a passionate speech about how her actions were justified in order to save the lives of unborn children. Stone responds:

Robinette reassures Stone that Schwimmer broke the law and is a criminal, regardless of whether one agrees with her stance on abortion. When Stone points out that until fairly recently the abortion providers would have been the criminals, Robinette says that no one can hold back social change.

During a religious pro-life protest outside an abortion clinic, an anonymous caller reports a bomb threat. Police supervising the protest evacuate the patients and staff, moments before an explosion. An amateur had assembled the bomb and tried to leave it in the bathroom, but failed to escape in time and was killed. A student ID card found in the wreckage identifies her as Sandra Turner. She never signed in as a patient, and no one saw her arrive. It turns out that the ID is fake and Sandra Turner doesn't exist. Greevey and Logan begin looking into Women For Life, a large anti-abortion group led by Rose Schwimmer. They confirm Schwimmer's alibi: at the time of the bombing, she was at a nearby tearoom with a friend. Greevey disapproves of abortion but Logan believes it's a right in a free country. He reveals that in a past relationship his girlfriend chose to abort their unplanned baby.

"Sandra's" car is examined and she is identified as a missing woman named Mary Donovan. Her strictly religious parents deny that she was involved with Women For Life but Mary's boyfriend, Patrick Dunne, claims she was aware of Schwimmer. Greevey and Logan investigate Schwimmer's friend Celeste [=McClure=], with whom she was having tea at the time of the bombing. [=McClure=] says that she did not know Mary Donovan. [=McClure=] volunteers at a community garden, and Logan observes that she has a bag of the fertilizer that was used in the bomb. Greevey and Logan have a heated argument over whether women should have the right to abortion; but are interrupted when Cragen reports that fingerprints on [=McClure=]'s bag of fertilizer match those found on a fragment of the bomb.

The fingerprints test positive as [=McClure=]'s. She gets bail, and her lawyer accuses Stone of inflating the charges against her in order to make a political point. Stone is determined to get enough evidence against Schwimmer to charge her with conspiracy relating to the bomb. He tries to convince [=McClure=] to accept a plea deal, however, she is determined to go to jail so she can be seen as a martyr for the pro-life movement. Robinette tries to appeal to Schwimmer not to let [=McClure=] take the fall for the bomb; but Schwimmer's lawyer advises her not to say anything.

Mary's parents recall that she had argued with Patrick on the day of the bombing, although Patrick's account of the fight with Mary differs from the story told by Mary's brother Kevin. When a second set of fingerprints on Mary's fake ID is matched to Patrick, Stone decides to detain him and hold him together with Kevin. The two fight, and Patrick breaks down, admitting that Mary was pregnant and went to the clinic to have an abortion. She was afraid of her parents finding out about the baby and had rejected Patrick's offer to marry her, since the timing of the birth would make it obvious they had premarital sex. He obtained a fake ID and gave her money for an abortion, but she refused to let him accompany her.

Stone warns [=McClure=] that she now faces a minimum 15-year sentence for second degree murder. She and her lawyer finally agree to accept a plea deal in exchange for her testimony against Rose Schwimmer. Stone fails to get Schwimmer detained without bail. He asks the jury to bear in mind that they are deciding the facts of a homicide case, not the moral argument over abortion. [=McClure=] testifies that on the day of the bombing, she brought the bomb to the tearoom; Schwimmer snuck out of a back exit to deliver the bomb, and instructed her to call in the bomb threat.

Against the advice of her lawyer and the judge, Schwimmer insists on testifying on her own behalf. She proudly admits to planting the bomb on Mary, and delivers a passionate speech about how her actions were justified in order to save the lives of unborn children. Stone responds:
