To the United Nations:
We, the adoptees, treated as second-class citizens of this world, discriminated against for circumstances beyond our control and against our will, having been denied our true name, nationality, heritage and birthright, for which our birth parents are responsible, do collectively and internationally unite in protest against the denial of our human rights to access the information pertinent to our personal growth, emotional development, and physical well-being. The laws in place are structured not to protect the innocent, but the guilty. Therefore do we hereby demand the unconditional release of the details of our birth, to which we are entitled, by birth.
The author of this petition has been blessed to have been reunited with her birthmother and the SIX children she had subsequently, and cannot imagine having gone through life not knowing them- especially after having grown up alone, abused and isolated in her adoptive environment.
But there remains a father and three more brothers whose identities are a state secret- secrets which are of benefit to no one but adoptive parents- many of whom are deceased. Furthermore, there is a class action lawsuit that will be launched in the near future, on the grounds that ALL adoptees not granted access to their original birth records have automatically been issued a DEATH SENTENCE without DUE PROCESS OF LAW! Ask a lawyer! This fact alone is enough to open records across the board! Meaning, that without updated medical history, we are at risk for any genetic timebombs that may be ticking away inside us. How many lives have already been lost because of this Forget the emotional side, that can and will always be challenged. Leave aside the \"rights\" argument. We have been sentenced to death by those who have no power to do so. Kangaroo court. Tree hangings. Think about it.
