Letters to the Editor May 3, 2011

If Obama were adopted, he would never see his birth certificate

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 amended birth certificate is issued, people are kept from viewing/possessing their truthful documentation of birth. Their 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.
