It's well known that hard drug and alcohol use while pregnant can cause congenital abnormalities in a developing fetus. I'm sure whoever wrote this article knows that, and I'm guessing you do too.

What about if they don't know she's pregnant? My ex-wife's college roommate didn't think she was pregnant until the second trimester. She wasn't planning to get pregnant, she was on the pill but suffered a bout of flu before the pregnancy, which means she likely puked up one or more pills. She was a competitive distance runner with very low body fat, so her cycle was screwed up, and it was not unusual for her to miss periods, even two in a row. When she missed the third, she started to get concerned. During that period, had she been a heavy drinker and unaware she was pregnant, she could have done some real damage, even caused a miscarriage? Should she have been charged if that happened.
I saw an interesting statistic the other day, 20-50% of pregnancies end in miscarriage. The number varies so much because the majority have a miscarriages happen before the woman knows she's pregnant, so Gawd, if you believe in one, is a far more effective abortionist than is Planned Parenthood.
