I ask that you support this proposed legislation and that you decline to introduce legislation that fails to provide adult adoptees with the unrestricted right to obtain their own OBCs.
The truth about Florida is this: no OBC access bill will get through the Florida legislature this session without legislators adding crippling and discriminatory restrictions. Ask questions. But insist on true answers.
When you fact-check claims of anonymous people who tell adoptees to swallow inequality, the decision is easy. No to HB357. It’s yet another disaster.
Adoptees and more than two dozen state and national organizations oppose Florida’s HB357, a badly flawed anti-equality bill
Florida’s HB357 creates an inequitable two-class system of OBC access that requires a forty year period to pass after an adoption before most adoptees can obtain original birth certificates upon request.
