DINIZ, Normélia Maria Freire et al. Voluntary abortion and domestic violence among women attended at a public maternity hospital of Salvador-BA. Rev. bras. enferm. [online]. 2011, vol.64, n.6, pp.1010-1015. ISSN 0034-7167.  https://doi.org/10.1590/S0034-71672011000600004.

Quantitative study in order to study domestic violence in women with induced abortion. Interviews were conducted with 147 women hospitalized for induced abortion in a public maternity hospital in Salvador, Bahia. The subjects are characterized by mostly women, black, poorly educated, economically dependent on spouses, experienced psychological abuse, physical and sexual abuse committed by their spouses. Almost half of the women were victims of domestic violence during the current pregnancy, and that was the reason for inducing abortion for 67% of them. The study reveals an association between experience of domestic violence and induced abortion. As mental health consequences, they developed symptoms of post trauma stress disorder. It is necessary that the health professionals consider the cues to identify domestic violence as a health problem associated with induced abortion, which requires a transformation on the training model, including domestic violence as a health issue.

Palavras-chave : nursing; obstetrical nursing; women's health; domestic violence; induced abortion.
