  1. Well the low birthdate is worrying the government. Maybe they’re fishing for more accidental pregnancies. Meaning the already illegal abortionists will be more cracked down on meaning even less safety for women who seek them out.


    1. The Lee Myung-bak Administration did indeed (re)criminalize abortion for precisely that reason, so yeah, it’s not as improbable as it may sound. But, as discussed in the article, I think infighting with the Korean medical industry is the most likely reason; making the morning-after pill available makes no sense otherwise.
