I noticed Koreans show deficient ethics in other areas, as well, such as euthanasia:
Or abortions - the reported abortions rates are incredibly high though the real rates are probably much higher:
Many Koreans seem to condone abortion and silently tolerate it. Even a Korean UBF "missionary" told me that abortion was not a real problem "since the Bible does not say anything about it". Reported cases of forced abortions by UBF leaders including Samuel Lee were simply ignored by the UBF Koreans, it did not seem outrageous or even mentionable to them.
I have the impression that Koreans have difficulties having a sense of "life ethics" or overall "Biblical ethics."
(I'm only talking about the democratic and Christian South Korea, not about North Korea. It makes no sense speaking about ethics in North Korea. I read torture, forced abortions and infanticide are the norm in North Korean prisons.)
I found one article that tries to explain this "ethical defects":
But I think this explanation is not really sufficient.
(Please do not think I want to bash Koreans. I want to understand them.)
