The Constitutional Court of Korea held at case on May 24 regarding South Korea’s laws on abortion. The court upheld the decades-old ban on abortion in 2012. The photos picture civic groups demonstrating for the decriminalization of abortion and anti-abortion groups standing for the current law. Several demonstrators were seen holding signs that read, “Unconstitutional,” reflecting their stance that anti-abortion laws violate basic human rights. Human Rights Watch, an international non-governmental organization, issued an amicus brief to the Constitutional Court of Korea on May 24 saying that South Korea’s anti-abortion laws are incompatible with the country’s human rights obligations.
