Description:
In November 2003, FGS Consulting (in association with Professor Gerry Boyle of the Department of Economics, NUI Maynooth) was commissioned to conduct research for the Crisis Pregnancy Agency (CPA). The objective of the project was to incorporate into one analysis the range of economical and policy factors that potentially affect women’s decision-making in crisis pregnancy and quantify such data in financial and “societal value” terms. It is important to note that the report recognises that there are both emotional costs and benefits attached to crisis pregnancy decisions but, as these cannot be readily generalised and are not amenable to quantification, the focus in this report is on the financial (or economical) costs and benefits. The research findings presented in this report should, therefore, be considered in conjunction with other reports being generated under the research strand of the CPA’s Strategy’s which, through a combination of qualitative and quantitative analyses, aims to give a greater understanding of the full range of factors which mediate choice in a crisis pregnancy situation.
