Are you pregnant and considering
adoption? My name is Robin Fleischner and I’d like to share with you a Birth
Mother’s Bill of Rights which I’ve composed in the course of
over 25 years as an adoption attorney speaking with thousands of birth mothers.
You have the right to be treated with respect and compassion throughout the adoption process. You have
the right to understand all your options including adoption,
foster care, and parenting your child. You have the
right to obtain prenatal medical care. You have the right
to obtain counseling. You have the right to choose the
adoptive parents for your child. You have the right to meet and interview the adoptive parents. You
have the right to make sure that the adoptive parents
are legally qualified to adopt under the laws have their state. You have
the right to be represented by an attorney at no cost to you. You have the right to obtain assistance with your expenses.
You have the right to make sure and know that your adoption is safe and legal. yYou have the right to
choose the kind of adoption that you pursue
whether it’s open, semi-open or closed. I hope that this Bill of Rights will assist you in making the best for your unborn child.
