We have received several communications from women in Pennsylvania expressing their fear of the passage of PA Bill HB 162. Pennsylvania appears to be following New Jersey in exposing women who suffered catastrophic pregnancies and were rescued by the confidential adoption process.
For women who will be impacted by this legislation, we recommend you review our blog entry Governor Chris Christie signs death warrant for aging and elderly women in New Jersey, May 5, 2014 and The Opening of Sealed Adoption Records: Privacy and Redaction, May 20, 2014.
Although the legislation in Pennsylvania in not exactly like the New Jersey legislation, the life altering impact is the same for women traumatized by confidential and unwanted pregnancy no matter what her age.
The Storm is coming. You are stronger than you think. You have options. Don’t let the State of Pennsylvania control you destiny. Be proactive. You are not alone.
