South Korean obstetricians demand enforcement of abortion law
The Korean group of obstetricians called Gynob has launched a movement against abortion, Joon Ang Daily reports. Their spokeswoman, practicing obstetrician Choi Anna, said she intends to advocate against abortion until the practice is entirely wiped out though she has reportedly received death threats from other private obstetricians who say her activities are bad for business.

"Our group has made it clear that we as obstetricians won't rely on abortion for a living anymore," Anna said.

The 43-year-old Anna admits to having once profited from abortions at her hospital. She told the Joon Ang Daily that Korean society's tacit consent to abortion has prompted many obstetricians to secretly provide the procedure.

"The country is now suffering from a low birthrate," Anna said, attributing it to a past population control policy that encouraged abortion. "The government seems to be reluctant now to clamp down. But we believe when doctors halt abortions, births could increase by more than 100,000 in one to two years.

"If this movement becomes successful, obstetricians won’t have to provide abortions for a living," she added.
