There sure are a lot of people in the replies to this tweet saying “excellent point” and “that’s by design.” Think about it: If getting an abortion is a felony, then a lot of women are going to become felons. And if they’re felons, they lose their right to vote. And since only women can get pregnant (for this exercise at least), this effectively reverses the 19th Amendment, preventing women from voting.
Making abortion a felony when most states don’t allow felons to vote is effectively reversing the 19th Amendment.

That’s from Texas and it reads:
This chapter may not be construed to authorize the imposition of criminal, civil, or administrative liability or penalties on a pregnant female on whom an abortion is performed, induced, or attempted.

They really can’t.
41 states and D.C. do not remove voting rights due to prior felonies. Most restore rights after the sentence is completed. A couple even allow voting while still incarcerated. https://t.co/rhvPjCuN32

Generally speaking, felons can't vote. Felons can't own firearms.
When you hear people start manufacturing felonies where no such charges existed before, get very, very, VERY suspicious.
This country does not bat an eye at removing rights from felons. https://t.co/XQZAhQysFb

We’re pretty sure the fascist Supreme Court and the GQP would still allow women who’ve had abortions to buy guns. It’s all part of the plan.
