There is no printed copy available to order.
This study of the experiences of adolescents with becoming pregnant in the Ga Mashi neighborhood of Accra was conducted to understand how these young women coped with an unexpected pregnancy. Open-ended interviews about pregnancy history, knowledge of abortion, and personal experience in coping with a pregnancy were conducted with 30 young women, each one interviewed three times. The study found that most of these girls had only one boy friend, that most were well informed about abortion, and that having a baby with a boy friend was the first step in forming a stable union.
