What about women who do NOT want to know the children they gave up for adoption, do they have the right to not have their identities revealed ?
No, you have a child, you owe them an identity, you owe them at least this – their place in the chain of life.
Does such a mother have a right to be free of the trauma of confrontation ?
I don’t believe a confrontation would be traumatic.
No right to that privacy. Once you are a mother, you are a mother – even if you don’t raise that child. The issue in reform is when the rights of the original mother infringe on the rights of an adoptee.
