Gunsmoke dealt with rape and pregnancy?

I sure do not remember this episode while I was growing up and I was very surprised to see it on tv land today.  No i dont generally watch Gunsmoke as an adult, I did see a lot of it as I was growing up though,.

Pretty racy topic for that show in my opinion.  Thoughts?

It was a later episode I think.  It was the school teacher played by the same woman who also played Miss Beatle on Little House who was raped.  She had strawberry hair rather than blonde though lol.

I used to watch with my grandmother as a child but I never really watched reruns. I remember the main characters pretty well though.

Quincy M.E. is another old show that dealt with tons of social issues in quite direct ways.  If there's a social issue involved, you just KNOW that at some point, he's goint to talk with an expert, who runs a clinic, who is passionately speaking about what a terrible injustice is being done to X Y or Z group whether that be airplane safety or battered women or some other cause.  For its time period, it's actually pretty heavy handed on the social messages.  :-)

And Asten is going to chew him out over it lol.  I LOVED Quincy.  I watch it on netflix still.  I hold Quincy responsible for my love of all thats forensic lol.
