Get Your Vote On

Chances are, if you read my blog regularly, you are connected to adoption in some way. That in mind, I ask you to take a minute or so from your busy life to sign this petition at change.org to return adult adoptees the right to their original birth certificates.

I don’t talk about them that much because they don’t apply to me personally since Korea doesn’t have birth certificates anyway. But the denial of original birth certificates to adopted adults in America is unjust and should not be allowed. I personally feel that it goes against all of the civil liberties that the United States stands for. I believe it’s wrong for adult citizens to not have access to birth records due to “confidentiality” of other adults.

In addition to the fact that denial of birth certificates is unfair and discriminatory, since the Patriot Act went into place after 9/11, some adoptees have faced difficulty getting passports or other documentation because their birth certificates are amended.  Can you imagine not being able to go on vacation, to visit family, or on a honeymoon because you are LEGALLY not allowed to get a certain piece of paper? Millions of adopted persons around the country live with that reality every day.

Please go to change.org and sign your name in support of adult adoptees having access to their birth records. Be against discrimination of ANY kind.

The ten petitions with the most votes will be presented to President Obama, so we need all of the votes we can get! Post this to your blog, twitter, or facebook. Email to your friends. Ask them to vote and stand behind all of the Americans who deserve their records.
