New York state has an outdated and unfair law discriminating against tax paying adult adoptees who, are no longer in the custody of adoptive parents. Adoptees who were not privy to any of the proceedings at the time of the adoption finalization.There is no just reason for preventing original birth certificates from being in the hands of the rightful owners.The sealed record law signed by Governor Lehman 1938 is a violation of the
tenets of human rights. It's past time New York!
