Tindle, Elizabeth (1992) Who carries the can? Alcohol and pregnancy. Drugs in Society, 3, pp. 1-11.

Abstract

This paper examines legal aspects related to the damage of the foetus in utero and discusses who might have some responsibility for ensuring a healthy outcome. In 2008 the legal ramifications of damage to a foetus were investigated and Australian National Guidelines on alcohol consumption were passed recommending abstention during pregnancy.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
