Korean Abortion Doctors Turn Against Abortion
A group of Korean physicians have stopped doing abortions and have formed a group to push for stronger public measures opposing the procedure.
The news is food for thought for women in Berwyn, Cicero, Stickney, N. Riverside and surrounding areas who are considering abortion.
"Over time, I became emotionless,"
In November, Shim and dozens of other obstetricians held a news conference to ask “forgiveness”
The new group, Gynob, says that its motivation is not religious, and that some of its members are not Christian. Abortion in Korea carries little of the emotional or religious meaning that it does in the United States. Gynob’s website, www.antidc.org, says, “The life of the fetus must be respected.” The group claims the support of 700 physicians, 30 of whom used to perform abortions and now have stopped.
