Factors that Determine Adolescent Pregnancy Outcome
Posted by Dr. Philip Ney on 10 Feb 2013 06:23:38 AM GMT

To me the most interesting finding is the close association of abortion with childhood neglect. A woman who experienced neglect as a child is likely to attempt to understand the key conflict of wondering if there is something wrong with her or is it because the parents are stupid and don't see what a valuable person she really is. She does this by subconsciously picking a man neglected by his mother as a child. As soon as she becomes pregnant, expecting a joyful acknowledge by her mate, she is met by rejection because he feels 2nd fiddle to the growing preborn infant. His cold reception triggers her key conflict and makes her cool toward him, accentuation his jealousy of the baby.

      When he threatens to leave, she has an abortion. He leaves anyhow, partly because post abortion she is not sexually receptive. In anger she begins to hate men but mates again out of loneliness and because her key conflict is only worse. The sad scenario repeats.
