And, because Catholicism is the largest Christian sub-sect in Latin America, a good number of Mexicans and other nationals subscribe to said belief system's outrageous practices.

Don't believe everything you hear.

This is not the article I read before, but check it out and see why our schools are over crowded by hispanic kids. Every mexican woman I see around here has a string of kids following her around, even young girls(just kids themselves) are pregnant. I don't think it's nonsense at all.

It's great that you think highly of your perceptions, but your statement that "Mexicans don't believe in birth control" is nonsense. Catholics that follow the Vatican, including white catholics, don't support the use of birth control. Believe it or not, there are non-Catholic Mexicans and I wouldn't assume that they don't support birth control simply because of their ethnicity. The failure to employ birth control has little to do with being Mexican and all to do with being Catholic.

Get your facts straight.

Perhaps you should do a little research and see what MEXICANS thinks about birth control, and they don't mention anything about being CATHOLIC. Since you're hispanic you already know that ...right..
