Adopted Baby Blues

I am glad that President Obama was able to obtain a copy of his Original Birth Certificate to prove that he was born in the United States.

However, if President Obama had been born and adopted in the United States, he still would not be able to produce his Original Birth Certificate for the public or even for his own viewing. By law, he would only be able to produce an “Amended Birth Certificate.” (An Amended Birth Certificate is issued at the finalization of a person’s adoption. This “birth certificate” replaces a person’s birth name with a new name and his/her natural parents’ names/information with his adoptive parents names/information. Once an ABC is issued, a person is kept from viewing/possessing their truthful documentation of birth. His/her Original Birth Certificate is sealed forever.)

I wish President Obama had been adopted so that the country could see how discriminatory it is to seal an adopted person’s birth certificate and replace it with a falsified one.

We’re not going to be able to do it if we just make stuff up and pretend that facts are not facts.” ~President Barack Obama, 3/27/2011.
