    The fertility rate for teens in Texas rose for the first time in 15 years in 2022, a shift driven by disproportionately high rates seen among Hispanic teens in the year after a six-week state abortion ban took effect, according to a University of Houston study.

    Latinas of all ages also experienced the biggest increase in births and fertility rates compared to other racial or ethnic group in the state from 2021 to 2022, according to the study released last week by University of Houston’s Institute for Research on Women, Gender & Sexuality.

    Texas women delivered 16,147 more babies in 2022 than in 2021. Of those, 13,503 babies, or 84%, were delivered by Latinas, according to the study.

    Additionally, the average fertility rate — the number of children born per 1,000 women — rose 5.1% among Latinas, compared to falling .2% for non-Hispanic white women and .6% for Black women. Among Latinas 25 and older, fertility rates rose 8%.

    The state’s overall fertility rate rose for the first time since 2014, by 2%.

    Texas’ teen birth rate increased slightly overall, while the U.S. teen birth rate continued to remain steady. Hispanic, Asian and Black teens all saw varying increases in their birth rates, while non-Hispanic whites continued to see declines.

    Among Texas’ Hispanic teens, the rate rose 1.2%, or an increase from 27.22 to 27.56 births per 1,000. But for non-Hispanic white teens, the fertility rate fell 5%, from 11.71 births to 11.13 births per 1,000. The fertility rates for Black teens rose by .5% or 22.29 to 22.41. For Asian teens, birth rates rose by 8.2%, a larger ratio because of smaller numbers, 1.42 births to 1.58 births per 1,000.

    The study states that the numbers suggest that while other racial and ethnic groups of women may have been affected by the state’s abortion ban, Hispanic women faced more challenges in getting reproductive care, including abortions.
    This is very worrying. White people are being outbred by Hispanics. Soon Texas will be majority brown.

    The country isn't white to start off with, it's always had a mixed population. Presumably you mean majority white. And why do you want it to be majority white?
    I have my reasons.

    Now it's my turn to ask you questions. Are you white yourself? Why aren't you worried about your country turning majority brown?
     
    You talk like I am on trial.
    Rather, you're acting like you're guilty. If someone says "I'm worried about X", or "I want Y", it's completely normal to be asked, "Why is that?" Especially on a discussion forum.

    It's not normal to act really shifty about it. People generally only do that when they don't have an answer, or they're ashamed of the answer they'd give.

    I don't need to explain sh*t to you, sir. The fact I want US to stay white is all that you need to know.
    I don't need to know anything about you at all, but the purpose of a discussion forum is to discuss.

    So go ahead, what are those reasons?

    Except I am not acting shifty. I don't act like I am guilty, either. I want US to stay white, and I am not afraid to say this in public.

    I get to choose what I want to discuss. And I chose not to tell you my reasons. Now go cry even harder.

    My question for you: why do you act like you are interrogating me?
     
    I have my reasons.

    Now it's my turn to ask you questions. Are you white yourself? Why aren't you worried about your country turning majority brown?
    Despite the fact you didn't ask me, I will answer.

    Yes I am white, and can trace my ancestors back to the beginning - we settled eventually in OhIo and Missouri. They were Christian. German decent. We have fought for the Union in every conflict since the traitorous losers got their arse kicked in 1865. My father is a Ret Lt. Col. in the USAF. We are the quintessential lineage the incels talk about.

    I am embarrassed to be associated with you in any way.

    First, we have never been a white country, the stats that incorrectly try to make this point exclude Indigenous People and slaves. Which is kind of dumb.

    Secondly, I wouldn't want a white America, no. Not even a little bit. What I want is more intelligent, humanistic Americans. And you ain't it. You are what is wrong with this country and planet. Supremacists should see the same fate as their loser ancestors. Quick question- for the superior race, we/you sure do get our/your arse kicked in every conflict. That is kinda hilarious don't you think?

    Thirdly, because your skin lacks melanin you think you are somehow superior? Why?

    And finally, because you aren't worth my time, I find it always hysterical when a white person wants the brown people to go. You know, the ones that were here first. You are complaining over stolen land, and expecting to be taken seriously? Sad.

    I am actually Asian. Did that just shatter your entire, "I am white but I hate white people" world?
     
    It says you live in BC.

    Wait, are you Andy Ngo?

    Have you ever admitted you were full of shirt about getting hit with a concrete milkshake in my city? We will never let you back, you aren't welcome here.

    And if you are I may or may not have punched you in the face.

    Saying you think something but then refusing to say why is acting shifty.

    You're not very good at this discussion forum thing are you?

    My question for you: why do you act like you are interrogating me?
    I'm replying to your posts on a discussion forum. The fact that you think that's an interrogation brings us back to the acting shifty thing.

    So why are you afraid to tell us your reasons? Ashamed of them?
     
    hmm so some asian guy, from Canada, comes in with such a malformed hot take... lol what a weekend. I'm guessing the person was never taught in schools here about the "great melting pot" - that is what they used to refer to the USA as.

    Also reminds me of my out of touch uncle, who in Home Depot, saw some signs in Spanish and complained that 'people who live here should speak our language' to which I had to point out 'well I guess we should all learn some Native American language then' - of course that comment flew right over his head and he didn't get it
