Title Den upprepade aborten - problem för vem?
Author(s) Tinnert, Agneta
Date 2010
English abstract
The aim of this study was from the beginning to examine why a woman who has made an abortion comes back for another one. Why does the risk taking continue, despite the fact that abortion is perceived as emotionally hard? How can this be understood? This study consists of a literature review and semi-structured interviews. I wanted to interview women who had made a decision to have a repeated abortion, but it was difficult to get that kind of interviews. I then decided to interview the staff who meets women searching for an abortion to have their attitudes and experiences of women coming back for another abortion. It is a qualitative research. I have tried to understand the phenomena "repeated abortion" by using theories based in social constructionism and gender perspectives. My conclusion is that the repeated abortion may not be a problem for the woman but for the care in which the abortion is performed.
