Abstract

Interviews with 184 adolescents revealed that all had consulted at least one individual before obtaining an abortion, although one‐quarter, primarily the older adolescents, did not consult an adult prior to pregnancy counseling. At both the time of the abortion and one year later, the adolescents perceived their mother and their male partner as the two most important and helpful people in reaching a decision. 1994 American Orthopsychiatric Association
