The Effect of Religious Membership on Teen Abortion Rates.
Tomal, Annette
Journal of Outcome Measurement, v4 n4 p103-16 2000-2001
Studied abortion rates among teenagers in 1,024 counties in 18 states that report abortion numbers. Results show that counties with high levels of religious membership were more likely to be in a state with a parental involvement law for teenage abortions. Both religious membership level and a parental involvement law were negatively related to teen abortion rates. (SLD)
