In this article, the author aimed to analyse the question of the place of illegal abortion in the system of crimes against life and health. In order to achieve this goal, a layer of tasks was accomplished: consideration has been given to the present stage of the development of the legal regulation of illegal abortion and the doctrinal approaches available regarding the legal regulation of this procedure and its legal consequences, as well as the criminal law analysis of this offence. Separately, in order to achieve the above objectives of the study, the author highlights the aspects of proper qualification of illegal abortion, as well as the analysis of features (criteria) differentiating between illegal abortion procedure, murder and murder of a newborn baby by the mother. Ultimately, the author, using general scientific methods of research, as well as private scientific methods, among which are comparative-legal and system-structural methods, concludes that the problem of distinguishing related crimes against life and health is relevant, both for Russia and for other countries of the world. The correct location and proportion of illegal abortions, which may be differently labelled in other countries' legislation, is essential for the case-by-case management, correct sentencing and the prevention of similar crimes in the future.
