Abstract

A significant research gap exists with respect to risky sexual behaviors, non-use of contraceptive methods, and abortion knowledge. The present study aimed to better understand the differences in abortion knowledge among adolescents and women ages 15–29 living in or receiving health care services in the District of Columbia (n=1,573). This study will provide meaningful knowledge and fill gaps in the abortion literature to both inform and create interventions to ultimately improve the health and well-being of women and girls in DC.
