    There are of course many side-effects to immigration reform, for example Latinos tend to be more in favor of pro-family and pro-community policies. For example, they are consistently pro-life and anti-gay marriage.

    As the US becomes an increasingly Latino nation, it’s clear that abortion is not going to stay legal for long.

    A May Gallup poll found that 51 percent of Americans called themselves "pro-life," or against abortion. But the Pew survey indicates that a higher percentage of Hispanics oppose abortion — 57 percent — or more than any other group.

    An overwhelming 40% of all Hispanics say abortion should never be legal. Others taking a pro-life view say abortion should be illegal except when the life of the mother is in danger (11%) or illegal except in rare instances when the woman is a victim of rape or incest (27%).

    "But the vast majority of us know what’s right, we know that every child has place en nuestras casas y nuestras familias — our homes and families," Rojas said. "We know and cherish and honor the sanctity of motherhood and of life."
