Recently abortion has become a hot topic in Thailand.  A few weeks ago, two thousand fetuses were found in a temple in Bangkok; brought there from an abortion clinic. 

Abortion is illegal in Thailand except under a few narrow circumstances, such as rape and to preserve the health of the mother.  I didn't really know the legality of abortion until recently, but its not surprising that the practice is almost always illegal here with a ninety-eight percent Buddhist population that includes a lot of people who don't even like to kill insects.
