The Iraqi legislator has issued many laws which aim to provide protection and safety to the children such these laws are the Juvenile Welfare Act and Child Care Act as well as the other texts that found in the Iraq punishments law. Although these laws assure and abide to ensure the safety and protect this stratum, what is disseminated at present, that there is a phenomenon needs an attention especially from the legislation point of view which is the abandon of the child and kill them.
