Abstract

This paper aims to discuss the relationship between abortion availability and child maltreatment among households in poverty. Child maltreatment is typically found among single mother households under the poverty line. Additionally, women who usually chose to have abortions fall below the poverty line. Due to both abortion and child maltreatment happening to families in poverty, within this paper I examine the impacts abortion availability has on child maltreatment within single mother households under poverty. I will do this by collecting national and state data for abortion availability, abortion rates, and child maltreatment. My hypothesis is that I will find a strong negative relationship between access to abortion and child maltreatment.
