MENTXAKA, Rosa. Notas sobre la suspensión de la condena capital de la mujer embarazada en el derecho romano. Fundamina (Pretoria) [online]. 2014, vol.20, n.2, pp.628-637. ISSN 2411-7870.

Progress in the movement to abolish the death penalty has been linked with what has been called "humanitarian law" and has been considered a victory for contemporary democratic societies. However, the suspension of the execution of the capital sentence for pregnant women has its roots in Roman law. In this paper, I reflect on the reasons for such an exception and its historical evolution in the Roman Empire. Modern humanitarian considerations were probably not known in Roman law.
