Bastard Nation Position Papers  Includes articles on open records, adoptive families, privacy issues, conditional access legislation, abortion, registries, and more. If you don't understand why we say that Delaware does not have open records, read the article on conditional access legislation and understand why this legislation is worse than no change at all!

Stealing Human Rights  Excerpts from a statement made by Gerry Gambill at a conference on Human Rights at the Tobique Reserve in New Brunswick, Canada back in August, 1958. In his speech, Mr. Gambill warns about the ways in which this society goes about taking away the human rights of Native American Indians. Substitute "adoptee" or "birthparent" or "adoptive parent" (or "gay" or "women" or "homeless"...) and you will not only begin to understand, but also you will learn how to resist. Think about this one!

Uniform Adoption Act  You don't have to be a lawyer to understand this basic information. Find out how this bill not only treats all parties in adoption (except the lawyers!) as second class citizens, and tops it off by questioning the maturity of adoptees who demand their rights.

Voices of Adoption  One of the oldest and most acclaimed adoption search and activism sites on the Internet, with lots of great stories and resources.
