Abortion Ban

Was reading news on Yahoo and came across this article: http://sg.news.yahoo.com/afp/20100301/tap-lifestyle-skorea-population-abortion-2a5be5e.html

What do you think? I think a ban on abortion might not necessarily be good for the country. I’m not sure how S.Korea is, but if the teenage pregnancy rate is high, then perhaps, forcing these teenage girls to give birth is not really advisable. I mean, you increase the birth rate, but there are many other implications – like are these girls able to provide for the little mouths. Also, the article also mentioned that the decreasing birth rate is partly due to delayed marriage. Shouldn’t the government do something about that then, since these couples are the ones they should be targeting at?
