Best Quote of the Week – April 16, 2022

“Ms. Herrera’s case is a terrific example of exactly what we expect to happen. You can’t continue to say over and over again that abortion is murder and not expect that police and prosecutors are going to not treat it as murder.”

Lynn Paltrow, executive director of National Advocates for Pregnant Women

Lizelle Herrera, a 26-year-old South Texas woman, was arrested and jailed recently over a self-induced abortion just months after the state banned most abortions.  The murder charge has been dropped, but abortion rights advocates are still concerned about increasing attacks against abortion in judicial circles.
