    Man got 6 months for poisoning his wife. Meanwhile, a doctor in Texas who performs an abortion gets up to 99 years and $100,000 in fines.

    Fuck Greg Abbott and everyone who voted for him.

    (Edited to correct that it’s the physicians facing the punishment, but Texas of course wants to impose the death penalty for women.)

    He gets 6 months, yet a doctor performing an abortion could face 99 years in prison, $100K+ fines, and lose their livelihood as their medical license is revoked.

      Motive isn’t given in the article, but I would imagine finances were at least a component of it.

    This is the best summary I could come up with:

    HOUSTON - A Texas man who drugged his wife’s drinks in an attempt to induce an abortion was sentenced to 180 days in jail and 10 years on probation.

    Mason Herring, a 39-year-old Houston attorney, pleaded guilty Wednesday to injury to a child and assault of a pregnant person.

    Harris County District Attorney Kim Ogg’s office did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

    Catherine Herring told authorities her husband in March 2022 began lecturing her on hydration and offering water.

    She also gave police videos from hidden cameras she installed at her home where her husband was no longer living.

    Mason Herring’s attorney, Dan Codgell, called the plea deal and sentence reasonable.
