Young women’s experience of abortion : Evaluation of knowledge in young women’s experiences of abortion from a social constructionism perspective (English)
Abstract [sv]

Studiens syfte var att undersöka vilka sociala och psykologiska faktorer som kan vara av betydelse för unga kvinnors beslut till abort, samt studera deras upplevelser i samband med aborten. En kunskapsöversikt med kvalitativ metod har genomförts. Det empiriska materialet har bestått av 9 vetenskapliga artiklar. Resultatet visar att samhällsnormer och värderingar, relationer till partner, föräldrar och vänner samt personliga värderingar och graden av egen medvetenhet är av betydelse för beslutet om abort. Kvinnornas sätt att förhålla sig till graviditeten, föreställning av fostret, samt mentalt stöd från närstående påverkade deras upplevelser av aborten. En viktig slutsats är att det bör strävas efter ett mer öppet och accepterande klimat i samhället gentemot unga gravida kvinnor. Utökat stöd och tydlig, objektiv information om kvinnans eget val vid ungdomsmottagningar skulle kunna leda till att unga gravida kvinnor ges större möjlighet att fatta självständiga beslut.

Abstract [en]

The aim of this study was to investigate the social and psychological factors that may be of importance for young women's decisions leading to abortion, and their experience from induced abortion. A knowledge review using the qualitative method of research with empirical information collected from 9 scientific articles. The result shows that social norms and values, relationships with partners, parents and friends, personal values and their degree of self-awareness are of importance for young women's decision on abortion. Women's ways of relating to the pregnancy and depicting the fetus as well as having mental support from close relatives affected their experiences of the abortion. An important conclusion is that a more open and accepting climate in society towards young pregnant women, together with mental support and objective information about women’s own choice in youth clinics, could lead to a greater opportunity for young pregnant women to make independent decisions.
