That said, we do discuss policy and politics a lot here. And although we're not a political organization, the topic of Adoptee Rights speaks to most of our authors and a large portion of our readership. In short, we'd like to spend time focusing on this topic this week. This could not be more timely as the 6th annual Adoptee Rights Day is tomorrow, August 12, 2013, corresponding with the 6th annual Adoptee Rights Demonstration.
So we open this thread today--this week--to our readers to comment: what does your original birth certificate mean to you? If you are an ally to the cause who is not adopted, what does it mean to you to support changing the laws in most U.S. states to give adoptees the same access to their OBC that everyone else who is not adopted enjoys?
