Romana-Mihaela Ţepeluş

Abstract


This article presents some considerations about the similarities and differences between the Hungarian Criminal Code (HCC) and the Romanian Criminal Code (RCC), both of which are in force at present, with regard to the criminal offence of abortion, respectively termination of pregnancy. 

Generically, abortion is defined as the non-survival of the underdeveloped fetus, as a consequence of the illegal use of means of termination of the intrauterine pregnancy which result in its expulsion. 

In the Romanian Criminal Code (RCC), the crime of termination of pregnancy is provided in Title I: Criminal Offences against the Person, Chapter IV: Aggressions against the Fetus, Article 201, and in the Hungarian Criminal Code (HCC), in Chapter XV entitled Crimes against Life, Limb and Health, in Section 163.
