Publisher Description

CONTEXT: Little is known about the experiences of unmarried young women in India who seek to terminate an unintended pregnancy. METHODS: A survey was conducted among 549 unmarried women aged 15-24 who had obtained an abortion in 2007-2008 at one of 16 clinics run by the nongovernmental organization Janani in the states of Bihar and Jharkhand. Differences in background characteristics, and in obstacles to obtaining an abortion, between those who had an abortion in the first trimester and those who did so in the second trimester were compared, and logistic regression analysis identified associations between these factors and obtaining a second-trimester abortion.
