Abstract:

The purpose of this study was to evaluate how midwifery students feel about adolescent sexuality, the use of contraceptive methods, and abortion. A total of 55 students in the second year of a midwifery course were included in the sampling. Data were evaluated by percentage distribution and McNamara's Test. An evaluation of the students' thoughts on sexuality showed that 87.3% believed a girl should be a virgin when she married, that 50.9% believed abortion was morally wrong and that 23.6% believed only married couples should be informed of contraceptive methods. The study showed that students were influenced in their attitudes by social-value judgments about adolescent sexual and reproductive health.
