This politician has one warning to all criminals who even dare to think about committing a fraudulent abortion

Americans were shocked when they learned a Texas attorney spiked his pregnant wife’s drink to force an abortion.

And now the woman’s brother, who happens to be a State Senator, is making sure it never happens again.

In order to turn up the heat, this State Senator is proposing steep consequences for anyone who dares to commit a fraudulent abortion.

A near-death experience

Pro-Life Press reported on the shocking story of Mason Herring, a Texas attorney who drugged his own wife’s drink hoping to kill their baby.

Not only did he do it once, but he did it multiple times. 


Talk about the ultimate act of betrayal.

The wife, Cathrine Herring, suspected something was off, so she saved the water to have it tested – and her suspicions were spot on when an in-home camera revealed what her husband had done.

Herring was able to have her abortion reversed through the medical abortion reversal process, but sadly her now 18-month-old daughter still suffers consequences of the attempted killing.

A slap on the wrist 

But instead of a firm sentence, Mason Herring got off with a slap on the wrist.

He was only ordered to serve 180 days in jail – and 10 years’ probation.


He tried to kill his own unborn daughter, tricked his wife into drinking a glass of water laced with abortion drugs, and he only has to spend 5 months in jail.

Catherine, who has to take their daughter to therapy eight times a week, couldn’t believe the light sentencing. 

“I do not believe that 180 days is justice for attempting to kill your child seven separate times,” Catherine told the Associated Press.

Justice was not served, and now a grieving family has to deal with the harrowing consequences of what Mason did to destroy their family. 

Never again 

Catherine Herring’s brother is Louisiana State Senator Thomas Pressly, and he was determined to make sure no other woman would suffer the same fate – and no crook like Mason would ever get away with attempted murder again.

Pressly introduced the Abortion by Fraud Criminalization Act which introduces stiff penalties to those who commit fraudulent abortions.

Under Pressly’s bill, a crime of coerced criminal abortion by fraud would carry between five and ten years if committed during the first trimester, and 10 to 20 years if committed after that.

Pressly hopes the steep consequences will be a deterrent.

“It’s clear to me that six months in jail isn’t punishment enough for committing this crime,” Pressly said. 

He continued, “Our family doesn’t believe justice was served in my sister’s case,” Shreveport Times reported.

Catherine plans to testify during the hearings.
