Thank you for the link and for your perceptive analysis. I think you are right. The idea of illegitimacy is so abhorrent here in South Korea, that abortion in such cases is frowned upon by almost no one.

Also, what you say about the skirting of the law and authorities looking the other way is true of many matters here in South Korea, from traffic laws to prostitution.

Here's an article that helped this Anglo-Saxon see the good points of a more flexible approach to the law: Rule of law vs Confucianism. A similar idea was briefly conveyed in this great speech: olzhenitsyn's Harvard Address.
