WHAT THEY SAID...THEN WHAT I SAID...
By 2050, the Latino population will have tripled, the Census bureau projects.One in four Americans will be Hispanic by mid-century, twice the current ratio.
Hispanic women have the highest unmarried birthrate in the country--over three times that of whites and Asians, and nearly 11/2 times that of black women, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Every 1,000 unmarried Hispanic women bore 92 children in 2003(the latest year for which date exist), compared with 28 children for unmaried white women, 22 for unmarried Asian women, and 66 for unmarried black women.
Forty-five percent of all Hispanic births occur outside of marriage, compared with 24 percent for whites and 15 percent for Asians. Only the percentage for blacks-68 percent--is higher. But the black population is not going to triple over the next few decades.
The only bright news in this demographic disaster story concerns teen births. Overall teen childbearing in the U.S. declined for the 12th year in a row in 2003, having dropped by more than a third since 1991. Yet even here, Hispanics remain a cause for concern. The rate of childbirth for teens from Mexico, part of the fastest -growing immigrant population in the U.S., greatly outstrips every other group.
To grasp the reality behind those numbers, you only need to talk to the people working on the front lines of family breakdown. Social workers in Southern California, the national epicenter for illegal Hispanic immigrants, are in despair over the epidemic of single parenting. Not only has illegitimacy become perfectly acceptable, they say, but so has the resort to welfare and social services to cope with it.
Dr. Ana Sanchez delivers babies at st. Joseph's Hospital in the city of Orange, Calif., many of them to Hispanic teenagers. To her dismay, they view having a child at their age as normal.But what is 'most alarming,' Dr. Sanchez says, is that the 'teens' parents view having babies outside of marriage as normal, too. A lot of the grandmothers are single as well; they never married, or they had successive partners. So the mom sends the message to her daughter that it's OK to have children out of wedlock."
Conservatives who support open borders are fond of invoking "Hispanic family values" as a benefit of unlimited Hispanic immigration. Marriage is clearly no longer one of those family values. But other kinds of traditional Hispanic values have survived--not all of them necessarily ideal in a modern economy, however. One of them is the importance of having children early and often.
"It's almost a badge of honor for a young girl to have a baby," says Peggy Schulze of Chrysalis House, an adoption agency in Fresno. It is almost impossible to persuade young HIspanic mothers to give up a child for adoption, Ms. Schulze says. "The attitude is:'How could you give away your baby?' I don't know how to break through."
Jackie says:"Close your legs...take birth control if you can't keep your legs closed...." You're Catholic and the Pope doesn't want you to use birth control?...He doesn't want you to have sex when you're 14 either, but that didn't seem to slow you down any......"
fuck..we're losing the country to illegals who can't keep their legs together...
fuckme..I use birth control...
