Conceptual Framework

The study focused on the respondent’s reaction to different factors that affects acceptance and perception of abortion. Under the research study are college students from University of Regina Carmeli and Bulacan State University. Figure 1 presents the conceptual model of the study. The primary independent variable is attitudinal perception and acceptance of students toward abortion in relation to their family, interpersonal relationship, peers, community, self concepts, and alcohol influence. Secondary independent variable is the college student’s profile in term of their age, gender, civil status, year level, social class, work status and religion. Moreover the dependent variable of the study is the individual as a biophysical adaptive system that employs a feedback cycle, throughout the control process and behavioral adaptive response. Each person’s adaptive level is unique and constantly changing. The individuals respond to stimuli in one of four modes that encompasses physiologic-physical adaptive modes, self concept group identity, role function, and interdependence.

Different statistic treatments were used between primary and secondary independent variables and the dependent variable to formulate an adaptive model.
