Beginning on June 3, 2005, Ohio requires the reporting of the birth of a child with fetal alcohol syndrome for Data Gathering purposes to the Birth Defects Information System. Ohio Admin. Code § 3701-57-02. Both prior to and subsequently from that date, another legal provision mandates that the Department of Alcohol and Drug Addiction Services provide a manner of determining the aggregate number of children born to women who are addicted, at the time of birth, to a drug of abuse and of children born with an addiction to or a dependency on a drug of abuse. Ohio Rev. Code Ann. § 3793.15. Yet, this latter law alone does not create an affirmative duty to report a woman who has used alcohol during pregnancy or a child with fetal alcohol syndrome.
