I had no idea abortion was illegal in South Korea in the first place. I'd be curious to see whether there's an explicit right to privacy or to security of person/bodily integrity/bodily autonomy in the South Korean constitution or whether this is a Roe-style inference from other rights.

All thanks to the freedom activists in South Korea, including the shining rock that is Moon Jae-In.

No it isn't.

Bottom line, of course, is that abortions will happen regardless of whether they are legal or not.

I can't believe I'm saying this but could we rather use "recommend" instead of empty-quoting here?

He is the head of the reformist-oriented Democratic Party. His party voted it in and he accepted it through.

How did his party vote it in if this was a court decision?

I no longer like Moon Jae-in now.  And here I thought cultural decay was limited to the West and Japan.

From the link:

No it isn't.

Bottom line, of course, is that abortions will happen regardless of whether they are legal or not.

People will also stab each other whether itís legal or illegal, but that doesnít mean thereís a constitutional right to stab people.

The bottom line is that many people consider abortion the ending of a human life, and just as many people donít. Weíve been having this debate for how many decades and people still donít understand this?

Because a ball of cells is *not* a human life, basically.

Time limits on abortion tend to be set where they are for a reason.

Any multicellular organism can be described as simply ďa clump of cells.Ē Youíre a clump of cells, but that doesnít mean you arenít a human life.
