From the Paper:"Infanticide is the murder of children either before or after its birth, according to French Criminal Codes infanticide is only the murder of the infant after its birth therefore the death of a new born baby, however within the English legal system it is classified as the destruction of life from conception to the age of three years old (Walsh PG).
Infanticide normally happens when the food supply is limited, this can be seen to occur within Chinese and Eskimo communities. Moreover, female infanticide is more common especially within strong patriarchal communities, and also within communities where a child is deformed or touched by evil, for example twin, these may be slain at birth (Anonymous PG)."
