Jason, you might want to quickly let everyone know about the petition. I don't think many people will go to the website unless you give them a bit more information on the exact nature of the petition.

I signed it.. Here's the petition details

Equal access for all adult adoptees to access their original birth certificate.
WHEREAS: American citizens who are adopted are denied their civil and human rights in regard to access to their own original birth certificates in most U.S. states ,

WHEREAS: State regulations denying unrestricted access to one's own birth certificate that apply only to a segment of the population, create a lifelong inequality for adoptees, regardless of age, in a way no others are subject to, and are thus discriminatory,

WHEREAS: This denial of equal civil and human rights was set in motion by regulations that were opposed from the onset by the Child Welfare League of America and were based on no-longer relevant social stigmas on infertility and illegitimate birth status,

This violation of civil rights needs to be repealed. Adoptees needs federal intervention to gain equal access.
