South Korea Government lifts ban on abortion


On Thursday, South Korea’s Constitutional Court struck laws banning abortion in the country, a landmark decision challenging the 66-year-old ban that has become increasingly unpopular in recent years.

In order to overturn the ban, seven out of nine judges ruled that outlawing abortion was unconstitutional votes by six judges.

The ban had to be overturned. After the ruling was announced, an uproarous cheer and relief cry broke out outside the courthouse from a few hundred protesters.

After years of campaigning for the repeal of the laws, a coalition of women rights activists, legal and medical experts and feminist scholars declared victory.
