Texan Latinas are tough. They can and do handle so much without complaint. But the State of Texas, waving the 'pro-life' flag, is threatening these women's lives and denying them basic human rights by cutting funding to the clinics that once served them.
Discussions about teen pregnancy, educational attainment and poverty tend to link young motherhood to less education and lower earnings, without taking into account the many barriers that Latinas face in trying to access higher education and higher-paying jobs.
Something is very wrong in Arizona. And if the U.S. Supreme Court does not intervene, Latinas in the state will live under one of the harshest immigration laws in the country -- one that that is sure to encourage further stigmatization of people of color.
