The purpose of this research was to measure attitudinal differences
between pregnant and nonpregnant teenagers. The sample was comprised
of l92 junior and senior high school students. The pregnant group
consisted of 87 teenagers enrolled in a Continuing Education Program
for pregnant teens. The non-pregnant group was enrolled in a regular
junior and senior high school. Comparisons were made of motivations
for parenthood, romantic love attitudes and perception of need
satisfaction. Analysis of Variance, one-way classification, was
used to test the significance of the differences between the means
of the two groups for each of the three variables. Pearson product moment
correlation coefficients were computed to determine the degree
in relationship among variables.
