Why Are We Protesting Helen Weinstein?
Helen Weinstein has repeatedly prevented New York State’s Bill of Adoptee Rights (A909) from moving forward for a vote on the assembly floor. SHE is the obstacle.
Every non-adopted person can easily obtain their original birth certificate. Adult adoptees should have that same right. Having one class of people treated differently than another based on the circumstances of their birth is the definition of discrimination. This is a violation of adopted citizen’s civil rights!
New York, being New York, is also VERY IMPORTANT to the rest of the countries fight to restore original birth certificate (OBC) access to adopted people. If NY was to restore adoptees civil rights, other states could turn quicker. New York, it has been said, “sets the tone”.
Do You Support An Adult Adoptees Right To Access Their Original Birth Certificate?
Then make it so! Make this important. Do NOT make excuses! Please join us and let your voices be heard! We can no longer just sit back and say "pass this!" We have WORK to do!
If you cannot be there in person, please write her, call her, email her. As her "concern" is the adoption mythology of "birthmother privacy", if you have a particular point to make on that side of the issue, it would be best.
