This just in! The National Council for Adoption has announced that it has ceased its 31-year promotion of adoption. As of April 1, the organization will be known as NCFAA: the National Council for Adoption Abolition. It’s first act will be to order states to open immediately, the original birth certificates of all adoptees with no condition. “It’s the least we can do. Our shameful acts have destroyed the lives of millions” says NCFAA president and CEO, Chuck Johnson. “We need to make amends. Whether they want them or not, we’re going to make sure that every adoptee in the United States receives ASAP a certified copy of their OBC.” Johnson says that NCFAA is so excited about its new mission that it will pay the cost of reproduction, certification, and FedExing of all documents. In addition to unsealing OBCs, within six weeks of April 1, NCFAA plans to open regional adoption abolition re-education camps for adoption agents, lawyers, and facilitators as well as Catholic Bishops, Mormons, civil libertarians, and coerced-pregnancy advocates. Special adoption abolition intensives for politicians are planned in each state starting with New Jersey, Missouri, Texas, California, Utah, and Florida. Utah politicians will receive special instruction on Continue Reading →
Big news out of Washington this morning! Tom Atwood has resigned as president and CEO of the National Council of Adoption “to pursue other professional opportunities.” No details given. The reigns of command, at least temporarily, have been turned over to Chuck “Gomer” Johnson who will act as interim Adoption Honcho. Dr. Pierce must be stomping through heaven’s floor. Johnson is a proponent of open adoption. The good news: as the director of an Alabama adoption agency, he was part of what he calls “the Alabama compromise” that restored the right of that state’s adoptees to unrestricted access to their original birth certificates upon request. The bad news: he supports “mutual consent” and is “open” to the idea of confidential intermediaries. Johnson also believes in working together and getting along with diverse groups. He doesn’t do name-calling. That’s a shame because NCFA is always so much fun to kick around when they call us commies, anarchists, and election thieves. It’s gonna be real interesting to see what this non-traditional appointment means. Maybe we can bring Gomer over to the Dark Side. Here’s the text of the press release: Thomas C. Atwood Resigns from the National Council For Adoption Alexandria, VA Continue Reading →
George W Bush opposes adoption! According to today’s Washngton Post, the White House is threatening to veto a change in the Federal Employees Paid Parental Leave Act that would permit federal and congressional employees to receive four weeks of paid parental leave after birth, adoption, or taking in a foster a child. The Congressional Budget Office estimates that the expanded benefits would cost $850 million between the second half of 2009 and 2013 — about $105 per federal employee per year. It’s “costly and unnecessary” according to Bush’s social welfare and family values brain. Unlike, say, the Iraq War, the War on Terror and TSA. The bill passed the House 278 to 146 with 50 Republicans voting for and one Democrat voting against it. A companion bill is in the Senate. RED ALERT:NCFA’s Tom Terrific Atwood should pitch his tent on the White House lawn on this one. Unless this bill passes and is signed into law, thousands of newborns will remain unadopted–victms of the brutish anti-adoption Bush administration.
