Adoption vs. Parenting Decisions among Pregnant Adolescents.
Herr, Kathleen M.
Adolescence, v24 n96 p795-99 Win 1989
Examined pregnant adolescents' choice of adoption. Found that adolescents with mothers who favored adoption and those who had few parenting peer models were more likely to choose adoption. Age, knowledge of peers who had chosen adoption, grades in schools, involvement in comprehensive adolescent pregnancy program, and participation in individual therapy or Decision-Making Group were not significantly related to decision.
