NO WAY IN NEW JERSEY

BASTARD NATION ACTION ALERT
BASTARD NATION ACTION ALERT! NEW JERSEY S1087/A2557

Please forward freely.

STOP DISCLOSURE VETO/WHITE OUT LEGISLATION IN NEW JERSEY!!!
ASK THE NEW JERSEY SENATE TO VOTE NO ON S1087/A2557! DON'T LET PASSAGE OF BAD LEGISLATION IN NEW JERSEY THREATEN EFFORTS IN OTHER STATES FOR TRUE EQUAL ACCESS FOR ADULT ADOPTEES!!
IT'S BACK!

S1087/A2557, (formerly S1093/A 3237) is due for a floor vote in the New Jersey Senate on Monday December 4. Please email or call the New Jersey Senators immediately and urge them to VOTE NO ON S1087/A2557. Please see contact information below.

The bill contains a birthparent disclosure veto provision. It also provides for a one year period following bill passage in which birthparents can file a veto to prohibit their names from being disclosed on the original birth certificates.

Bastard Nation: The Adoptee Rights Organization opposes legislation that denies any adult adoptees access to their own original birth records on par with all other citizens. Please let the Senate know that this issue is not about relationships between adoptees and their birthparents. It is about basic human and civil rights and the relationship between adoptees and the STATE of NEW JERSEY.

The New Jersey state government should not be in the business of denying adult adoptees access to their own birth certificates in a misguided attempt to appease a mythical adversarial standoff between adoptees and birthparents.

Inclusion of a disclosure veto in this bill perpetuates the violation of adoptee rights by making unaltered birth certificate access a privilege bestowed at the whim of birthparents.Passage of bad legislation is New Jersey could easily undermine efforts of dedicate d reformers who are holding the line for adoptee rights in other states. What happens in one state impacts what other legislatures will consider.

New Jersey's S1087/A2557 is an abomination in light of the restoration of the right of all records access to all persons adopted in Oregon, Alabama, and New Hampshire. Adult adoptees and all who support adoptee rights should stand united for unrestricted access laws and not sell out just to get a bill passed! Disclosure veto legislation is unethical and unjust!

Please e-mail, call, and write the New Jersey Senators and urge them to VOTE NO ON S1087/A2557!
