Most states require reporting of newborns affected by prenatal exposure to illicit drugs to the child welfare system.  But there is a great deal of variability as to what constitutes evidence of prenatal exposure, much less great variation within states and even within hospital systems. The Federal Child Abuse Prevention and Treatment Act complicates these issues further, and recent studies have shown that CAPTA is having little impact on promoting welfare of children. 

Key questions: What rights do parents have as to how they wish to raise their child, vs. what responsibility does the State have in protecting children?  What role does toxicology testing have in decision-making?  How do inherent personal biases regarding race and social class affect placement decisions? How do clinicians’ attitudes toward and the reputation of child welfare systems affect our actions?  Can Federal legislation such as CAPTA really make a difference?
