South Korea’s Abortion Law Reform Can Serve As Model For Other Countries

Human Rights Watch: South Korea’s Abortion Reform A Model for Others
Janet Walsh, deputy director of the Women’s Rights Division at HRW, discusses a ruling by South Korea’s Constitutional Court that found the nation’s abortion laws unconstitutional and called for reform, noting the action can serve as a model for other countries. Walsh writes, “Now it’s time for other countries to secure women’s basic reproductive rights, including their access to safe, legal abortion” (4/15).
