Abstract

College students' attitudes concerning male involvement in the abortion decision-making process were investigated with the aid of 94 participants. A t test supported the first hypothesis that no significant difference exists between males and females regarding levels of male involvement. A t test also supported the second hypothesis that pro-life participants will endorse higher levels of male involvement. A Pearson correlation revealing no significant relationship between level of male involvement and number of religious worship services attended during the last month did not support the third hypothesis that more religious participants would endorse higher levels of male involvement. A multiple linear regression was used to investigate the research question, "Do gender, race, and religiosity significantly predict levels of male involvement in abortion decisions?" Regression results indicate that the linear combination of these variables significantly predicted level of male involvement. (c) 2006 Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.
