Unplanned Pregnancies, Family Planning Problems, and Child Maltreatment.
Zuravin, Susan J.
Family Relations, v36 n2 p135-39 Apr 1987
Examined the relationship between contracepting problems, unplanned fertility, and both child abuse and neglect in 518 urban, single parent, public assistance mothers. Findings revealed that increasing numbers of unplanned conceptions increased the probability of both abuse and neglect and that the unplanned conceptions were due to both failure to use birth control and ineffective use of birth control.
