Build Families, Not Barriers

This petition was published by Joint Council on Jul 07, 2009

We, the undersigned, call on the CDC to eliminate the new TB protocols for children adopted abroad by U.S. citizens on the grounds that they are unnecessary for this population.

Implementations of the protocols for children adopted abroad by U.S. citizens are not in the best interest of this vulnerable population and create unnecessary delays.

Additionally, the protocols deny adopted children of U.S. citizens the right to U.S. medical care, while children of U.S. citizens who are born abroad are exempt. We request this change in order to ensure more children live in permanent, safe, and loving families.

We ask the U.S. government to help build families, not barriers.
