Griffin-Carlson, Mary S.; Mackin, Kathleen J.
Adolescence, v28 n109 p1-11 Spr 1993
Surveyed 439 women (ages 12-21) seeking abortions concerning support networks they used during their pregnancy. Fifty-one percent reported having confided in their parents. Results revealed that degree of financial and emotional dependence and quality and nature of family communication were closely related to decisions to confide in parents about the decision to seek abortion.
