Is voluntary abortion illegal in Texas? Questions arise as murder charge dropped | app


DALLAS — The arrest last week of a woman in the Rio Grande Valley for murder for “voluntary abortion” has caused confusion about what is covered under Texas’ new abortion laws.

On Thursday, Lizelle Herrera was arrested by the Starr County Sheriff’s Department for murder and voluntary abortion. But County District Attorney Gocha Ramirez announced on Sunday that he was dropping the charge, saying “the only correct outcome in this case is to immediately dismiss the indictment against Ms. Herrera.” The motion for dismissal was filed on Monday.
