Summary Examines the individual and combined influence of religion, morality, race, politics, personal history, sociopolitical context, and economics on a woman's decision to continue or terminate a pregnancy.
Part I examines the complex pattern of variables that influence the heated debate surrounding abortion in the US. Part II describes racial, ethnic, class, religious, and other sociodemographic differences in abortion attitudes and behaviors. Part III covers the intrapersonal and interpersonal contexts of abortion, including method and service delivery system characteristics that influence accessibility, acceptability, and psychological consequences of abortion for women and their partners. Part IV considers issues such as pre- and post-abortion counseling strategies, patient sensitive provision of services, use of psychotherapy to help women better understand and cope with their abortion experience, and the application of experiences in other countries to improve service deliver in the US. The volume concludes with recommendations for improving abortion services, legislation, social policy, advocacy, and research efforts. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2004 APA, all rights reserved).
