The Reproductive Beliefs and Habits of Former Believers of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (“Ex-Mormons” and “PIMOs”)

Semester: Spring 2024


Presentation description

Previous research has theorized why those of the Latter-day Saint (LDS, Mormon) tradition have distinct pronatalist behaviors. Additional research has found that early life religious exposures can help internalize pronatalist schemas. This study applies such research to the ex-Mormon and PIMO (physically in, mentally out) populations in the US to gather a baseline of their reproductive beliefs and habits to see if former believers of the faith still maintain distinct pronatalist behaviors.
