A lot of adoptive parents are angry about one line in this film: It must be hard to love an adopted child like your own.
They are angry about this movie line but are perfectly content that their adopted child has a birth certificate that was permanently sealed from him/her and a falsified "amended" one issued.
Adoptees have to live their lives carrying around amended birth certificates and are NEVER allowed to see their original birth certificates containing their true names and the names of his/her true biological parents. Adopting parents get to have their names placed on the amended certificates as the birth parents! What lies!!!! These violations of a childs rights does not concern the protestors because it works for them! It is not their ethnicities, their heritages that are sealed. No, their newly purchased child will be forced to accept these lies are his/her truth. These self-righteous people own the copyrights to their adopted child's identity and could care less that it's FICTION that is on their child's birth certificate.
It is downright disgraceful and pathetic what people choose to protest.
We, the signees, want Orphan movie t-shirts to wear proudly because getting angry over one-liners and not giving a hoot about our (adoptees) civil rights is laughable.
We, the undersigned, would like Orphan movie t-shirts. We feel the outrage over one line in this movie is outrageous: It must be hard to love an adopted child like your own.
Adoptees are discriminated against every day in the United States of America. We are denied our basic civil rights to possess the documents that recorded our births! We are forced to accept falsified "amended" birth certificates that show our adoptive parents as our biological parents. Children are only born once! Birth certificates are vital records and should never be tampered with or edited.
A lot of adoptive parents are NOT up in arms about Amended Birth Certificates because it suits them. (They have an option to choose not to have their adopted child's birth certificate amended during the adoption process.) This option is seldom used. Why? It is not the adoptive parents who are losing THEIR ethnicities, THEIR heritage, THEIR biological identities with an amended birth certificate.
Adoptees want what all non-adoptees have and take for granted: Our ORIGINAL, UNAMENDED, UNFALSIFIED, UNSEALED BIRTH CERTIFICATES.
Please produce Orphan movie t-shirts because many adult adoptees are tired of all the fuss over a one-liner. We want to wear Orphan t-shirts proudly in protest against the civil rights violations we endure every day in this country.
Thank you for your time and attention to this matter.
Keep up the great work. Look what you've accomplished!
