Not a Clump of Cells: Woman Learns the Hard Way That “Self-Induced Abortions” Is Murder in Texas

The war against abortionists and their murder-supporting disciples took a positive turn this week when a Texas woman was charged with murder for an intentional “self-induced abortion.”

According to KSN:

Lizelle Herrera, 26, was arrested on Thursday by the Starr County Sheriff’s Office and charged with murder. Starr County is located near the U.S.-Mexico border and the southern tip of Texas.

According to a sheriff’s office spokesperson, Herrera was arrested after it was learned she “intentionally and knowingly cause the death of an individual by self-induced abortion.”

Herrera remains in the custody of the Starr County Sheriff’s Office at this time on a $500,000 bond.

Leftists are already positioning this as an example of how “inhumane” it is to treat a murderer like a murderer. But the law is clear and the human being conceived in Herrera is more than a clump of cells by Texas law, at least after a heartbeat is detected approximately six weeks after life in initiated.

An old pro-abortion trope has been revived as a result of the case as the concept of choice over one’s own body is being invoked. Ironically, the same people who are pushing this narrative are also among the most adamant about forcing people to get injected with experimental Covid drugs against their will.

This case will draw nationwide attention as it’s the first major moral test of such a law. Other states have been going down the trail blazed by Texas. Fewer preborn babies are being murdered as a result. But since most pro-abortionists like to redefine life and one’s status as a human being based on their whims, they look at this as a bad thing. In other words, their desire is for more babies to be murdered even if they don’t say those words explicitly.

The best-case scenario is for Herrera to be convicted, sending a clear message that in states where the sanctity of life is revered, frivolous choices that result in death can result in severe punishment.
