Part I of this study examined women's abortion attitudes by regressing abortion sentiment on 14 variables. Most of the variables were suggested by prior research, but two women's liberation variables unreported in previous studies were added to test their predictiveness while controlling for all the standard variables. Part II of the study utilized 9 of the original 14 variables in a series of path analyses. Indirect effects of the variables were described. It was found that one of the women's liberation variables did significantly predict abortion attitude. However, path analysis suggested that the concept of women's liberation was too broad to describe the two variables as each was composed of very different components.
