Adoption reform means taking away the fraud, coercion, lies, misinformation, and lack
of information from the adoption industry. It means no longer falsifying documents, or
defying natural parents' rights to their children.
National Infant Adoption Reform Act
Years ago, there were several people working on a national bill for infant adoption
reform. Unfortunately, there has not been any acceptance in the legislation to push for
such reforms. Therefore, in order to get the information out there, here is a draft of
the National Infant Adoption Reformation Act. Because it
has had so many contributors and authors, and you would like to take on the task, feel free
to copy, distribute, and make changes as you feel inclined, taking into consideration
adoptees and natural families rights. Great time and energy went into making this bill,
and it would be a shame to not see it through.
