SEOUL, January 5, 2010 (LifeSiteNews.com) – A group of South Korean doctors are hoping to motivate the people of their country to reexamine the catastrophic pro-abortion culture in which they live. They are hoping to force the government to enforce the existing abortion laws, by organizing groups to discourage women from having abortions and to report clinics that perform them illegally.
Dr. Choi Anna and her colleagues held a news conference in November to ask “forgiveness” for having performed illegal abortions, and have since formed the group Gynob which calls on other doctors to declare whether they have performed illegal abortions.
Obstetrician and Gynob member Dr. Shim Sang-duk said the group’s goal is to call attention to the hypocrisy of the un-enforced abortion law and to end abortion in the country entirely.
There is little stigma attached to abortion in this country that for decades encouraged the medical profession to provide abortion and contraception to Korean women for patriotic reasons, and was a lucrative business for them.
“We see a tendency to have one perfect child and abort the rest,” Dr. Choi said. “We had women demanding an abortion simply because they had taken cold medicine or drunk too much while pregnant.”
“We sold our soul for money,” added Dr. Choi. “Abortion was an easy way to make money.”
The resultant current fertility rate of 1.19 children per woman, one of the lowest in the world, caused the government to abandoned the population control policy, and is now frantically moving in the opposite direction to save the nation from a self-inflicted demographic implosion that threatens to undermine the nation’s economic and social survival.
In November, President Lee Myung-bak convened a government meeting to call for “bold” steps to increase the nation’s birthrate.
“Even if we don’t intend to hold anyone accountable for all those illegal abortions in the past, we must crack down on them from now on,” Health Minister Jeon Jae-hee said at that meeting.
Just like the economic meltdown fueled by over inflated assets, abortion was the gravy train that helped fuel this culture of greed and death. Women’s rights? Give me a break. There would be no abortion if there wasn’t any money to be made from it.
And now…everyone is starting to figure out that payback’s a bitch, eh?
Good luck in reversing the culture of death with a government program or enforcement. It won’t work.
You need a thoroughly pro-life ethic. That means education and a lot of time. Time that South Korea just doesn’t have.
Like Fr. Euteneuer says, “Look at Carthage, the Phoenician empire was much more powerful than Rome for a period of time. But Carthage had a religion that offered human sacrifice of babies. Eventually it degraded from within and collapsed on itself.” “We’ve got a serious crisis on the horizon. I’m not a prophet of doom but I don’t see this going any other way but a serious political crisis that’s going to affect the globe,” he said. In the “moral dimension of the law of nature,” the killing of countless millions of children through the 20th and 21st centuries will require a tipping back of the scales of cosmic justice on an unimaginable scale, he said.
And in other news, the auto demolition continues in the land of Francesco, Jacinta, and Lucia….while Europe hastens the death wish.
