Do adoptive parents commit fraud when they have their children’s birth certificates censored and edited, to the detriment of their children’s health and personal quest for knowledge about their heritage. Is Mr. Christie going to be the head of the crusade against birth certificate alteration in all its forms because he is a man of principle who totally didn’t say and do that transphobic thing because he is transphobic, it’s just that he loves birth certificates so much and hates anything to do with editing these precious records.
Heh. Since global child trafficking is literally 100% legal in the U.S., hard to say what constitutes “fraud” there anymore. One of Angelina Jolie’s adoption agents who made over $9,000,000 USD profits from buying and selling Cambodian children (and erasing all their birth records, natch) was charged with fraud, but ONLY because she failed to declare the 9mil on her taxes.
Meanwhile, this cis scummy U.S. politician is crying “fraud” at trans* people seeking to edit incorrect birth certificates. LOL stay classy, USA.
While I can’t comment much on the second half of the post that the OP posted, I can comment on the first portion.

In the case of adopting children, at least within the United States, it is not the parents that alter the birth certificates but the child placement agencies and courts.
Changing the Original Birth Certificate (OBC) is part of the standard procedure of adoption (particularly closed adoptions). When the adoption is finalized, as I said before, the courts and child placement agencies create a new birth certificate for the adoptee with the names of the adoptive parents (“aparents” as they’re called in some adoptee circles). While it is difficult, adoptees are sometimes able to obtain their OBC later on…. after doing a lot of digging, fighting for it in court, and spending money to get it. Digging, going to court, and spending money is also sometime (often enough) required also to unseal the adoption records of the adoptee.
While I have not yet obtained my OBC, I have gone through the ring of getting my records unsealed & trying to track down my biological family (bfamily). I have also worked with many adoptees to help them in their journey of unsealing their records and find information on their biological parents (bparents) and families. I’ve also had to do loads of research about the adoption industry, particularly as it pertains to native adoptees. Although aparents can sometimes be pretty shitty (as could biological parents), more often than not the blame for false documentation of adoptees and making it difficult to obtain records of adoptees prior to being adopted lies primarily with courts and child placement agencies.
However, given that names on adoptees’ birth certificates are also subject to change between the OBC and the birth certificate post-adoption, I feel that everyone ought to have the right to have whatever name their prefer on their birth certificates as well as access to any and all birth certificates that are created for them.
Pretty sure Dickensianwerewolf was being his sharp, snarky self by posing the question of adoptive parents committing fraud— but hey, your serious response is great and useful, boosting for my U.S. adoptees, cheers! X
in regards to hyunsu’s murder, holt is now publicly saying that the bruises on hyunsu’s body could be “MONGOLIAN SPOTS” or BIRTH MARKS - audacious claims considering the AUTOPSY found “a fracture at the base of skull, bruises to the forehead, swelling of the brain and wounds to other parts of the body..blunt impact to the back from a linear and triangular shaped object.”
but why wouldn’t holt be audacious? this isn’t the first time children who have been adopted through holt have been murdered by their adoptive parents. in 2008, when four korean children were murdered by their adoptive parents, holt’s response was: “Holt International Children’s Services investigated and found that the Sueppels were a very good family when the children were adopted. They had no criminal records. Mr. Sueppel’s parents and brothers had decent jobs.”
apparently if you have no criminal record and your parents and brothers have decent jobs… by holt’s standards, you are a “very good family” - NO! yes, there is abuse in biological families but we can’t screen biological families before they have children. however, we can and SHOULD screen adoptive families rigorously before we place children in their care. clearly, the screening process at holt (who placed hyunsu AND the four 2008 murder case victims) and catholic charities (the american agency hyunsu was placed through) is NOT working.
holt must take responsibility for its part in hyunsu’s death!!
