Up next on listener-supported radio, two straight white dudes discuss growing up African American lesbian

Fellow listeners, lend an ear, and then perhaps spare a moment to ask WHYY two individuals, neither mother  nor adoptee, were chosen to discuss adoptee equality and the myth of "birthmother confidentiality".

Adoption and Open Birth Records

Monday, June 21st, 2010

There is a bill before the New Jersey assembly that would give adult adoptees access to their birth records. While adoptees argue that they have a right to this information, others say that the privacy rights of the birth parents should be protected. This hour, we'll debate this issue and look at the growing trend toward openness in adoptions. Our guests are University of Pennsylvania law professor Anita Allen and the executive director of the Evan B. Donaldson Adoption Institute, Adam Pertman.

By now you have to know that Adam, god bless his soul, always manages to be in the media. As a person I really like him, but I wish he would spread the wealth, and learn when he needs to turn the reins over to adopted people.

To his credit, I believe I remember him saying something along the lines of adoptees and mothers need to be the ones in this conversation.... or maybe that was the LAST public radio adoptee rights debate that featured two adoptive parents LOL! It's hard to keep these public radio shows that feature no adoptees nor mothers straight!!
