For women whose second closest friend ended her pregnancy using surgery rather than medications, ABORSURGLOC_FRND2 reports where the female respondent’s second closest friend obtained the surgical procedure to end her pregnancy.

Note that if her second closest friend used multiple methods and two or more included procedures, ABORSURGLOC_FRND2 reports the source for only the last procedure obtained.

The question associated with this variable was included in the female questionnaire.


There are no comparability issues.


  • Women aged 15-49 whose second closest friend either likely or certainly has ever aborted a pregnancy, and who sought one or more surgical methods to do so.
