Abstract

This research was commissioned by the Young London Matters Teenage Pregnancy Work-Strand group of the Government Office for London with bpas as a participating study site. The purpose of the research was to identify factors associated with the disproportionately high proportion of under-18 conceptions that end in abortion in London, and underlying factors associated with the disproportionately high under-18 repeat abortion rates in London. The research explored young women's attitudes towards sexual behaviour, contraception and abortion decision-making with groups of young women in schools and young women who had made the decision to terminate pregnancies. The aim is to improve the sexual health and personal relationships of young Londoners, and inform future commissioning and provision of services (contraception and sexual health, targeted youth support services, extended services, sex and relationships education).
