Based on a questionnaire of 480 women at a hospital in France.

Four hundred and eighty women answered to the questionnaire: 322 came for their first abortion while 158 were hospitalized for at least the second time for an induced abortion. The proportion of current or past violence was 53% in the "repeated induced abortions" group compared with 33% in the "first induced abortion" group (OR 2.1, CI 95% [1.4-3.1], P<0.01). Statistically significant differences were found between the two groups for all types of domestic violence.In our sample of women, we found that experiencing domestic violence with current partner appeared to be a risk factor of repeated induced abortions.
