Sorry, CTMom, you just don't get it. Here, I'll shout it for you: THE AMENDED BIRTH CERTIFICATES ARE ALL LIES!<quoted text>
Adoptees have the right to apply and pay for an ammended birth certificate and a regular birth certificate. Doesn't mean they'll get both. I have a right to work and apply for work, doesn't mean I'll get the job. If states and federal gov't recognizes ammended bc, then for all intents and purposes the rights of adoptees have been met. States and federal gov't can't possibly recognize both an ammended certificate and an initial birth certificate, for the same person, because the official information on both is inherrently different (parentage).
Is that clear enough? They state that this person was born on this day to this mother. Not true. In a shocking number of cases, even the birth date and place were deliberately falsified. How would you like if you found out that all of the facts of your very existence had been obliterated and lies installed in their stead?
