Are you an Oregon adoptee? HB 2843, introduced by Representative Dave Hunt (D-Clackamas) would violate your right to access your own record of birth and repeal Measure 58. Call Rep. Hunt TODAY to protect your RIGHTS!
Call Representative Hunt TODAY, at 503-986-1900, or email him at firstname.lastname@example.org and firmly but courteously state your opposition to HB 2843. Tell him:
- Your right to access your own birth certificate was affirmed by over 600,000 Oregon voters in 1998.
- In the eleven years since Measure 58 was enacted, 10,000 Oregon adult adoptees have been given copies of their original birth certificates without incident or problems.
- Oregon adoptees and their supporters are firm in their support of the current statutes and will not accept a return to the era of secrecy and lies in adoption!
