Abortion Ban in South Korea Ruled Unconstitutional

In a historic victory for people’s movement towards reproductive rights of Korean women, South Korean Constitutional Court has overturned the current law which criminalised abortion.

The court has asked the national assembly to amend the law by the end of 2020, adding that the ban would be repealed if MPs failed to introduce new legislation by the deadline.
