Right to Life of an Unborn: Practice of Abortion in South Korea from a Buddhist Standpoint

Abhinav Anand, Ajit Kumar Behura


Intentionally ending the life or development of a foetus is called: abortion. Spontaneous abortion and induced abortion are two types, where spontaneous refers to a miscarriage, and induced abortion is a procedure performed by a licensed physician when there is a possibility of danger to the life of the mother. Buddhist tradition rejects the practice of abortion; it believes abortion is the deliberate destruction of an innocent human life.
