Clusters of teen births trigger public health questions
Clusters of teen births trigger public health questions

2017-06-02

(Reuters Health) – Though the number of American teenagers having babies has dropped over the past half century, a new study finds regional clusters with strikingly high teen birth rates. The clusters tended to be in southern states, with three of the top 10 in Texas, but they also popped up in Denver, Colorado; Fresno, California; and Yakima, Washington. The number one urban center with a cluster was San Antonio, Texas, with an average birth rate for 15 to 19 year olds of 67 per 1,000, which was 87 percent higher than the average national teen birth rate. The maps of teen-birth clusters shifted when investigators adjusted for poverty and lack of education, two factors researchers long ago identified as likely contributors to teen pregnancy. After considering the effect of poverty, for example, San Antonio dropped from the top spot to the fifth, and after taking education level into account, San Antonio dropped out of the top 10, the study found....

NRA loses appeal of California firearm fee
NRA loses appeal of California firearm fee

The National Rifle Association failed to persuade a federal appeals court to overturn a California law requiring that $5 of a $19 fee imposed on firearms transfers be used to fund enforcement efforts against illegal firearm purchases. In a 3-0 decision on Thursday, the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco said the law advanced California’s interest in disarming people who are forbidden from possessing guns and rifles, while imposing only a “minimal” burden on core constitutional rights under the Second Amendment. California’s prohibition covers people convicted of felonies or violent misdemeanors, people subject to domestic violence restraining orders, and the mentally ill. “The government has demonstrated an important public safety interest in this statutory scheme, and there is a reasonable fit between the government’s interest and the means it has chosen to achieve those ends,” Chief Judge Sidney Thomas wrote. Thursday’s...
