The problem of drug use by pregnant women has been widely discussed and both social policy and legislation have been created in an attempt to deal with it. Using a black feminist analysis, this probing volume challenges these policies and laws, as well as much of the discussion, by examining the significant sexist, racist and class-based ideologies which underlie them.
