Abortion Practiced By The Woman Herself Or By Her Parents
1. That there is a pregnant woman who has suffered an abortion;
2. That the abortion is intended; and
3. That the abortion is caused by –
a. the pregnant woman herself
b. any other person, with her consent, or
c. any of her parents, with her consent for the purpose of
concealing her dishonor.
The liability of the pregnant woman is mitigated if the purpose
is to conceal her dishonor. However, there is no mitigation for
the parents of the pregnant women even if their purpose is to
conceal their daughter’s dishonor, unlike in infanticide.
