Restore Adult Adoptee Access to Original Birth CertificatesThis petition is addressed to Members of your State House
Eligible Signatories: All free people of this universe are eligible
We call upon all state legislatures to restore, unconditionally, the right of adopted adults to access their unaltered original birth records.
Adoptees are parties to a contract they did not sign, and most were not even old enough to read. Current law in most states continues to treat adoptees as children in perpetuity long after they reach adulthood. Although they were party to a legal proceeding that forever altered the course of their life as children, they cannot even examine the documents as adults. Adult adoptees seek restoration of a right every other American takes for granted, unrestricted access to the public document that recorded their birth, unaltered and unredacted.
