WE DEMAND OUR ORIGINAL AND TRUE BIRTH CERTIFICATES AS OUR IDENTITIES, NOT FALSE ONES.

Adoption violates universally accepted children's rights, as enshrined in the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (1989) to which Australia is party.

Adoption treats children as commodities - chattels to be procured, owned and re-labelled.

Adoption is touted in wealthy Western countries as an act of altruism and humanitarianism to rescue children, but it is really a disguise for an ethically dubious third-party family formation method.

I've had enough of the deception of adoption and the inherent betrayals which continue to be inflicted upon adopted children and the adults we become.

There is no need to continue doing adoptions. There is no need to continue the legal falsification of birth certificates and identities.
