The study aimed to consider the support required of healthcare professionals from intentions and actions that contradict with the intent to commit a crime. The legal database was searched from April 1 to June 30, 2022, using the keywords “birth,” “abandonment,” “guilt,” and “judgment date 2012–2021.” Among the trials investigated, four cases were included in a study in which the findings of fact specifically indicated intentions and actions that contradicted the intent of filicide and abandonment after isolated birth. These precedents were examined by compiling information about the newborn’s father, the time of conception and delivery, and the newborn.
