South Korea court says abortion ban is unconstitutional
South Korea’s Constitutional Court said on Thursday a law criminalizing abortion was unconstitutional, a landmark ruling that will overturn a ban on abortion that had been in place since 1953.

The court said in a statement the ban on abortion, as well as a law that made doctors who conduct abortions with a woman’s consent liable to criminal charges, were both unconstitutional, Reuters.com reported.

However, the court said the current law would remain in effect until the end of next year. The court had previously upheld the abortion law in 2012.
