But recently, the network put the kibosh on an episode, entitled “Partial Terms of Endearment,” in which mom Lois considers having an abortion. While the broadcast audience will never get to see Lois debate whether or not to keep the child she’s carrying as a surrogate for friends who are then killed in a car accident (funny?), the unaired episode will finally see the light when 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment releases it on DVD this September.

What do you think, PopWatchers – should Fox have aired the episode? Are you planning to check it out on DVD this fall? And do you think abortion it too touchy a topic for TV? Sound off below.
