Texas is a pro-fetus state, but not a good place to be a child or other non-corporate, non-male, non-white entity.

Texas has one of the highest maternal mortality rates in the United States along with the fourth highest teenage pregnancy rate in the nation and the number of low-birth weight babies and children born bereft of any prenatal care has been rising steadily since the 1990s. Texas infant mortality rate among some groups looks like something out of the 19th century and a child under the age of one dies every three hours.

25% of Texas children live in poverty (10% in “extreme” poverty, <less than 250% of the federal poverty level) and Texas rates 42 in expenditures for education (spending 2.5x more on prison inmates per capita). On average 29% of 2 yr olds are not fully immunized and only 55% of the families eligible for SNAP and other essential assistance receive it and that is not because they are too “proud” to request it. In 2012, 64,937 children were victims of neglect or abuse and Texas has the second highest number of children awaiting adoption while living in foster care the United States.

Texas’s right wing “conservative” politicians might be pro-fetus, but there’s not a shred of evidence to suggest that they’ve ever been pro-life.
