Rossi: Should Adoptees Have Access to their Original Birth Certificates?” [1/28]

On the show tonight, we’ll discuss whether or not adoptees should have access to their original birth certificates. It’s always been a hotly debated topic pitting birth parents who wish to keep their identities secret vs. the adult adoptees who wish to obtain their family history, especially as it pertains to health matters.

According to this:

A state Senate committee with a long history of supporting adoption rights overwhelmingly approved a bill Monday that would allow adopted people to obtain their original birth certificates that reveal their parents’ names.

Winning support from the Senate Health, Human Services and Senior Citizens Committee was never in doubt: the panel supported similar versions of the bill eight times since 1996, Chairman Joseph Vitale (D-Middlesex) said.

But pressure from Catholic church leaders, anti-abortion rights advocates, the ACLU and the State Bar Association, who argue that birth parents surrendered babies believing they would remain anonymous, have successfully killed the measure since it was introduced 34 years ago.

Take the poll below. Do you support the right of adoptees to have access to their original birth certificates?

Here’s some of what we’re working on for tonight’s show:
