Thanks for writing to us.
Just taking 40 ml vodka only once is not likely to put your child at such high a risk so as to contemplate a medical abortion. Now that you know the problems of alcohol consumption in pregnancy, you must avoid taking it in future and continue with this pregnancy.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
