This week on “Sanjay Gupta MD”:  Coming in to World Autism Day (April 2), Sanjay looks at the crippling cost of treatment, and the story of three Georgia mothers with autistic children launched a campaign for “Ava’s Law,” to force many private insurers to pay for autism treatments.  Also, Sanjay talks to D’Angelo Vaughn who came home from Iraq a nearly-broken man with a brain injury.

Program Descriptions:

ANDERSON COOPER SPECIAL REPORT: Murder Abroad – The Amanda Knox Story
American exchange student Amanda Knox, whose 2009 conviction in Perugia, Italy, for the murder of her roommate, British exchange student Meredith Kercher, was overturned in 2011, saw yet another reversal of her legal case when her acquittal was recently overturned this week by the Italian Supreme Court. CNN investigative correspondent Drew Griffin updates his reporting from his research in Italy, where the sexual assault and stabbing death occurred, and Seattle, WA, where Knox grew up and where Knox and her parents now live, to report the facts behind the sensational international headlines.  Griffin’s investigation includes a rare television interview with the chief prosecutor in the case, Giuliano Mignini, and reveals a pattern of prosecutorial behavior that raises questions about the original conviction.  

In exclusive interviews with superlawyers Ted Olson and David Boies—as well as Hollywood impresario Rob Reiner—CNN chief political analyst Gloria Borger traces their unusual legal journey. Borger’s exclusive access to Olson’s and Boies’ preparations for their historic appearance on March 26 before the U.S. Supreme Court reveals the Odd Couple friendship of the two lawyers.  Though the two fought against each other in Bush v Gore, they will argue against the constitutionality of state measures that ban same-sex marriage – together – for a case that amounts to what they call the nation’s last unsettled civil rights issue.

STALKER: The reagan Shooting
CNN investigative correspondent Drew Griffin reports on the attempted assassination of President Ronald Reagan on March 30, 1981.  Weaving CNN's dynamic coverage of the events as they happened more than 30 years ago, with interviews from eye witnesses, Griffin speaks to Jerry Parr, one of the U.S. Secret Service agents who saved Reagan’s life, and Drs. Joseph Giordano and Wesley Price - who treated President Reagan at George Washington University Hospital.

As two billion Christians worldwide prepare for the celebration of Christmas, CNN examines archeological evidence and insights from renowned authorities on the ancient church to explore how a faith challenged by the martyrdom of its earliest followers and apostles, could also survive controversy and vigorous debate over its orthodoxy, to become the world’s largest religion.  Narrated by Liam Neeson, After Jesus explores the sometimes surprising early history of Christianity, and the challenges and struggles of the early church.
