Racial differences and the role of marital status in the association between intimate partner violence and unintended pregnancy.
This study examined the association between intimate partner violence (IPV) and unintended pregnancy across racial/ethnic and marital strata among U.S. women. Among other results, the investigators found that the odds of unintended pregnancy were increased for married non-Hispanic White women who reported IPV compared to their non-abused counterparts even after controlling for sociodemographic factors, health care access, and reproductive history.
