Currently in the United States, approximately 1.5 million elective abortions are performed annually. Despite the frequency in which abortions occur, little research has been done to document women’s experiences of voluntary perinatal loss. The purpose of this study was to examine the bereavement process as it occurred in rural women who elected voluntary termination of a pregnancy.
