Abstract

This article reports the results of a qualitative framing analysis of the coverage of fetal alcohol spectrum disorders (FASD). The findings indicate that media discourse about FASD is characterized by differing story types and competing frames. The study also documents the recent emergence of a new frame in opposition to the prevailing abstinence frame in health coverage. This frame has shown physicians to be conflicted in their advice about drinking during pregnancy.
