Who is Lizelle Herrera? Aged 26, Charged with murder

Lizelle Herrera is a Starr County resident who rose to the spotlight in the media after she was arrested and charged with murder after reportedly terminating her own pregnancy.

In Texas, a lady is charged with murder after allegedly self-inducing an abortion

In Texas, a 26-year-old woman was charged with murder after prosecutors claimed she caused “the death of an individual through self-induced abortion” in the state with the strictest abortion regulations in the country.

It’s unclear if Lizelle Herrera is charged with having an abortion or of assisting another woman in having one.

Herrera was detained on Thursday and remained in the Starr County jail in Rio Grande City, Texas, on a $500,000 bond on Saturday, according to sheriff’s Maj. Carlos Delgado.

“Herrera was arrested and served with an indictment on the charge of Murder after Herrera did then and there intentionally and knowingly cause the death of an individual by self-induced abortion,” Delgado said.

Delgado did not specify the law under which Herrera was prosecuted. Because the situation is still under investigation, he stated no further details will be revealed until at least Monday.

According to University of Texas law scholar Stephen Vladeck, she is not charged with criminal homicide because she aborted her own pregnancy.

“(Homicide) doesn’t apply to the murder of an unborn child if the conduct charged is ‘conduct committed by the mother of the unborn child,'” Vladeck said.

The number of abortions in Texas has been drastically reduced thanks to a state law passed in 2021 that prohibits abortions for women as early as six weeks pregnant. Private persons can sue doctors or anybody who assists a woman in getting an abortion under the law.

Self-inducing an abortion, not a law?

The woman who has an abortion is not subject to the law.

However, some states still have laws that criminalize self-induced abortions “and there have been a handful of prosecutions here and there over the years,” Vladeck said.

“It is murder in Texas to take steps that terminate a fetus, but when a medical provider does it, it can’t be prosecuted” due to U.S. Supreme Court rulings upholding the constitutionality of abortion, Vladeck said.

The state law exemption was also mentioned by Lynn Paltrow, executive director of National Advocates for Pregnant Women.

“What’s a little mysterious in this case is, what crime has this woman been charged with?” Paltrow said. “There is no statute in Texas that, even on its face, authorizes the arrest of a woman for a self-managed abortion.”

Another Texas rule prevents doctors and clinics from supplying abortion-inducing medicines after the seventh week of pregnancy, as well as allowing the pills to be delivered by mail.

According to federal Food and Drug Administration standards, medication abortions are not considered self-induced.

“You can only receive the medication under medical supervision,” according to Vladeck. “I realize this sounds weird because you are taking the pill yourself, but it is under a providers’ at least theoretical care.”

The abortion-rights group Frontera Fund appealed for Herrera’s release in Rio Grande City on Saturday.
