So, with the arrival of a post-Roe society, we stand to question a lot.
https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2022/us/abortion-laws-roe-v-wade.html is updated regularly with updates about state restrictions on abortion. Having an abortion in certain states is a felony now.
https://felonvoting.procon.org/state-felon-voting-laws/ is a map of voting rights for felons, as it varies from state to state. The problem with felons not being able to vote is that a large chunk of the population will not have a say in voting for or against certain propositions or measures that affect them.
Abortion is now essentially banned in Texas. And felons may lose their ability to vote after incarceration. So much of the population won’t be able to vote, making our shared country less reflective of the diversity of our viewpoints. Do we really want future generations stuck in a world with leaders and laws that don’t reflect our diverse opinions or needs? Make your voice heard. Do something to make the world we live in and the world that generations ahead of us will live in a place that reflects the needs and opinions of everyone. Every voice makes a difference.
