Forreston Graham is a pro-life defense attorney from Ohio.

History

When Evangeline Miller tried to have an abortion after being raped by her stepfather James, Graham came from Ohio, where abortion is illegal, to represent James's interests. He threatened to have anyone involved arrested if Miller got an abortion. However, the court ruled in objection to the arrests.

When Evangeline was given permission to have an abortion, Graham confronted ADA Carisi outside the courtroom and criticized him for helping the girl. Carisi replied by telling about his own mother who, though catholic, decided to get an abortion due to the baby suffering from an illness that would have killed it just after being born, leaving both her and Carisi distraught for the loss, and then he admonished Graham for letting his anti-abortion crusade make him speak in favor of a child molester. It is said the Ohio D.A. later indicted James Miller. (SVU: "The Burden Of Our Choices")
