Texas Woman Arrested For Performing “Illegal Abortion” On Herself

A woman in Texas was arrested and charged with murder for allegedly performing an “illegal” abortion on herself.

Lizelle Herrera was taken into custody on Thursday in the southern part of the state and is currently being held on a $500,000 bond.

According to a Starr County Sheriff’s office spokesperson, who spoke with local news outlet KVEO TV, the 26-year-old woman was arrested because she “did intentionally and knowingly cause the death of an individual by self-induced abortion.”

Herrara’s arrest has sparked outrage and protests in Texas, where pro-abortion activists planned to rally outside the Starr County jail where she is being held.

Rockie Gonzalez, the founder and director of the Frontera Fund, told  Medium, “What we know is that…she was in the hospital and had a miscarriage and divulged some information to hospital staff, who then reported her to the police.”

Gonzalez could not confirm how far along Herrera was in her pregnancy.
