#Children's Rights


Formally petitions the Government to acknowledge Irish adopted people’s full identities that the on-going discrimination and breach of their human and civil rights due to the circumstances of their birth be immediately legislated for.

And further petitions to return the rights of Irish mothers and the States failure to allow them access to their adult children’s information.

Legal adoption came into effect on January the first 1953 in Ireland with the first legally adopted people reaching the age of 18 in 1971. During the past 60 years, eight Adoption Acts and an amendment to the Constitution have been brought forward. All without a single piece of legislation to grant information rights or statutory based information and tracing services to adopted Irish people.

Adoption Rights Now! Is petitioning for change now!

2. That adopted adults have access to all information to know their families of origin, their own original name, their mother’s name, their place of birth, the circumstances which led to their adoption and their early care and medical treatment.
