FIGUEROA-LARA, Alejandro; ARACENA-GENAO, Belkis; REYES-MORALES, Hortensia  e  LAMADRID-FIGUEROA, Héctor. Factors associated with the seeking of legal induced abortion services in Mexico City in 2010. Salud pública Méx [online]. 2012, vol.54, n.4, pp. 401-409. ISSN 0036-3634.

OBJECTIVE: To identify factors associated with the seeking of the legal-interruption-pregnancy (LIP) services in Mexico City. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We used a case-control design. Users who utilized the LIP were defined as cases, while users of the antenatal care service with gestational age 13 or more weeks and who reported having an unwanted pregnancy were defined as controls. Logistic regressions were fitted to estimate odds ratios. RESULTS: Higher level of education (OR=1.47, 95% CI:1.04-2.07), women's occupation (being student OR=7.31, 95% CI:1.58-33.95; worker OR=13.43, 95% CI:2.04-88.54), and number of previous abortions (OR=11.41, 95% CI:1.65-79.07) were identified as factors associated with the lookup of LIP. CONCLUSIONS: In Mexico City context, empowered women with a higher level of education, or having a work activity are the users of LIP services. Strategies for improving access of women with low empowerment conditions are needed.
