Research on attitudes to abortion and class
Research paper on abortion from religious perspective
Central European University. Introduction The actuality of the abortion issue is explained in this chapter. The author expresses his determination to explore philosophical and historical background of this problem in the United States and Germany emphasising the legal development of abortion regulations. The comparative legal method was used as a proper means to illuminate Croatian controversial situation concerning the termination of pregnancy and to contribute in a modest way to probable law reforms. The objective of this thesis is to prove, despite very different substantive rules of abortion regulations in these countries, the similarities behind formal differences which witness about the universality of abortion dilemmas.
Genetic interests, life histories, and *attitudes towards abortion
Attitude extremism in the abortion controversy: a test of social judgment, cognitive dissonance, and attribution theories. Three theories social judgment, cognitive dissonance, and attribution are contrasted to identify the theory from which abortion attitudes are most accurately predicted. Four concepts abortion-related socialization, abortion-related experience, ego-involvement with abortion decisions, and abortion-related extremism are identified, and the relationships between these concepts are predicted in accordance with the theories, providing a standardized test with which to discriminate between the theories;The critical tests of hypotheses show consistent support for attribution theory as the theory from which abortion attitudes are most accurately predicted. Specifically, experience is associated with an increase in the width of the latitude of acceptance, indicative of a comparatively less rigid perception of appropriate conditions for obtaining an abortion.
Religious leaders may play an important role in providing sexual and reproductive health pastoral care given a long history of supporting healing and health promotion. We conducted 20 in-depth interviews with Mainline and Black Protestant religious leaders on their attitudes toward abortion and how they provide pastoral care for abortion. The study was conducted in a county with relatively higher rates of abortion, lower access to sexual and reproductive health services, higher religiosity, and greater denominational diversity compared to other counties in the state. Interviews were audio-recorded, transcribed verbatim, and analyzed by thematic analysis. However, most participants expressed attitudes in the middle of this spectrum and described more nuanced, complex, and sometimes contradictory views.
