A once-clean bill in Iowa is now bad. SF621 grants parents an unchallenged power to alter an adopted person’s original birth certificate—for now, for future adoptions, and forever, even after the parent dies.
The bill has been transmitted to the House, where it faces skeptical Republican leadership and may not even be brought up for consideration. We need to let the Iowa House of Representatives know that this bill does not work and should not be brought up for debate. We particularly need to get that point across to House Republican leadership.
