Re: Adoptees’ Birthright Bill (S873/A1259)

Dear Governor Christie,

I’m writing to you to ask you to sign the Adoptees’ Birthright Bill. Adoptees in the state have been fighting for over 30 years, to have their civil right restored. Every citizen in our country deserves to know their name, their heritage, and to have a complete medical history.

The bill is fair to both adoptees and birth parents. The bill protects birth parents’ privacy, since it gives birth parents the option to put a note in their child’s file, saying that they don’t want to be contacted.

I hope that you will do the right thing and sign the Adoptees’ Birthright Bill without delay.

  1. Do you have to reside in New Jersey for a letter to be effective?

    • No. It will HAVE more punch from NJ residents, but it is still good for him know that the whole country is watching.. remember he still might seek the nomination in 2016 for Pres. 🙂 You can tell him that you have family and friends in Jersey.
