I received a call from the New York State Department of Health yesterday and spoke with the acting director of vital records. Here’s what I learned.
Department of Health
NYARC and Adoptees United Inc. seek more information from New York state courts about how they will handle requests for information under the new law.
The DOH report shows that opposition in New York to an adult adoptee’s unrestricted right to obtain his or her own original birth certificate appears so muted today as to be virtually non-existent.
NYARC believes the meeting was productive and that it signaled strong and increased support for passage of clean adoptee rights legislation in New York.
Action Alert: Tell the New York State Department of Health that equal rights matter. It’s time to get it right. It’s time for a clean adoptee rights law in New York.
