The ancient Scandinavians would toss babies they weren't able to feed off of cliffs or leave them outside in the wintertime to freeze to death.
In Jesus' day, Roman citizens would take unwanted babies and abandon them by the side of the road to be eaten by wild animals or vultures.
Regardless of how the child is killed (exposure to the elements, gravity, wild animals, doctors or pills) the result is the same. It's still murder.
