BASTARD NATION ACTION ALERT


MISSOURI HB 509

PLEASE FORWARD FREELY!

ATTENTION ALL ADOPTEES WHO LIVE OR WERE BORN IN MISSOURI

Last week the House Judiciary Committee heard testimony on HB 509 which restores the right of Missouri adoptees to access their original birth certificates. The Committee will probably vote on the bill on April 10, 2007.

The bill permits any person adopted in the state, 18 years or older, to access their original birth certificate upon request. This is a clean bill with no restrictions. Bastard Nation: the Adoptee Rights Organization supports the bill.

HB 509 can be found at http://www.house.mo.gov/bills071/biltxt/intro/HB0509I.htm

The relevant part of the bill reads:

Upon receipt of a written application to the state registrar, any adopted person eighteen years of age or older born in the state of Missouri shall be issued a certified copy of his or her unaltered, original, and unamended certificate of birth in the custody of the state registrar, with procedures, filing fees, and waiting periods identical to those imposed upon nonadopted citizens of the state of Missouri. Nothing in this subsection shall be construed as violating the provisions of section 453.121, RSMo.

If you have a Missouri connection please contact the House Judiciary Committee and ask them to support unrestricted access to birth certificates:
