Influence of Attitudes, Significant Others, and Aspirations on How Adolescents Intend to Resolve a Premarital Pregnancy.
Brazzell, Jan F.; Acock, Alan C.
Journal of Marriage and the Family, v50 n2 p413-25 May 1988
Examined how sexually active adolescent women intended to deal with premarital pregnancy and what influenced intentions. Subjects holding positive general attitudes toward abortion showed stronger intentions toward terminating unwanted pregnancy. Abortion attitudes of significant others influenced intentions. More career-oriented subjects exhibited more positive attitudes toward abortion. Those feeling closer to boyfriends appeared less disposed toward abortion. (Author/NB)
