This is a critical review of the Constitutional decision held in 2012 regarding the Article270 [Abortion by the Medical Personnel] of the Criminal Code. The Constitutional Court in Korea ruled this article to be congruent with the Constitution particularly Articles 10, 11 Paragraph 1, 12 Paragraph 1. Grounded on the ``law and society`` approach, this article tries to present the result of the empirical survey that investigated women`s experiences of, and perceptions about, abortion. The survey interviewed 34 women, whom had or had not abortion. Doing this, it is intended to let the women`s voice audible especially in the context of the court that does not seem accommodate the women`s voice even in the case of abortion. In the chapter II, for the sake of paving the road to interpreting the responses of the empirical data, it discusses the various aspect of the abortion in Korea such as the related Articles in the law, the social reality of abortion in Korea. Although most of abortion have been illegal according to the law, the number of abortions in Korea has been estimated to be large according to the preexisting social survey. Do Korean women`s right to abort has indeed been realized in the reality? ; How do we, feminist socio-legal scholars, interpret the phenomenon? In the following chapter, the result of the survey is examined according to the methodology of qualitative research. About the experience of ``abortion,`` most of abortion-experiencing women confessed the physical pain and illness. They also emphasized the bodily discomfort was deepened when it could not be shared with, and supported by, others. The experience of abortion seems particularly detrimental to the relationship with a male partner who was unable to sympathize with her experiences of the abortion. In this regard, the abortion tends to reconstruct women`s perception about sexual relationship and her sexual subjectivity, too. Women who got through the abortion tend to be more cautious in having sexual relationship, and their subjectivity seems more self-restricted. In general, the ban on the abortion let the women choose the ``unsafe abortion,`` and thus it seriously risks women`s reproductive health. If the policy-maker and legislators consider that no contraception can perfectly prevent women from the unwanted pregnancy, they have to accept the women`s needs. The abortions in Korea could be the expression of desperation rather than that of women`s right for autonomy.
