- Adoptees' bid for access to birth certificates stirs debate
By DAVID CRARY, AP National Writer - Sunday Jul 9, 2017
Some opponents of full access argue that making the birth certificates available on demand would violate birth mothers' privacy and induce some pregnant women to opt for abortion rather than adoption.Some are willing to consider compromise bills that provide limited access, while others say it's wrong to accept anything other than unrestricted access equal to what's available for non-adopted people.The states that offer unrestricted access are mixed in their political leanings — Alabama, Alaska, Colorado, New Hampshire, Oregon, Rhode Island, Hawaii, Kansas and Maine.California and New York are two of the most liberal states, while conservatives control the statehouses in Texas and Florida, yet the adoptee-rights movement has struggled in all four to make headway on the birth certificate issue.State Rep. Richard Stark, who was adopted as an infant in New York State, introduced a bill in Florida's legislature this year that would allow adoptees access to their original birth certificates after they turn 18.Brodeur said he would oppose any bill that set the stage for birth parents to be found against their wishes by any adult offspring they had made available for adoption.Acknowledging that some are frustrated in trying to find their birth parents, he suggested that the state health department could become more active in helping birth parents and adoptees make contact voluntarily.Rather than letting adoptees access birth certificates on the same basis as other adults, the bill would require them to apply to a court, and the state health department would then try to contact the birth parents to inform them of the application.If a birth parent is located, and requests continued anonymity, the parent's name would be redacted before the birth certificate is released.Corrigan D'Arcy, a birth mother who has lobbied for unrestricted access in New York, says the bill ignores the experiences of states such as Oregon and Alabama, where there has been little outcry about expanded access causing harm to birth parents.Over the past 20 years, there have been several attempts in America's most populous state to expand adoptees' access to their birth certificates.Hard-line groups such as Bastard Nation denounced a provision that birth certificates would not be released if a birth parent objected; they wanted no restrictions whatsoever.Around the nation, numerous adoptees have been able to work around birth certificate restrictions by using social media or DNA testing services to track down their birth parents.Another option would be to circumvent the legislature and seek voter approval of unrestricted access via a ballot measure.In 2015, a bill that would have provided adoptees with unrestricted access to their original birth certificates passed the House on a 138-1 vote, yet failed to advance out of a Senate committee after Campbell blocked it.
