While only marginally related to Buddhism (simply by the fact that the 
majority of S. Koreans are Buddhists, at least nominally, though upper 
strata of the govt. and an ever increasing percent of the population is 
Christian), this might be of interest of to some, as an example of East-West 
cross-influence, cultural evolution, women's issues, etc. From NYTimes:

"Group Resists Korean Stigma for Unwed Mothers"



P.S. Please, no screeds about abortion here (did you know that it was 
illegal in S. Korea?).
