The Indiana House today, 72-24, voted to make it easier for those who are adopted to get access to their birth records.
Senate Bill 91 allows adoptees to get easier access to their birth and medical records.
Opponents against the measure say individuals who put their children up for adoption years ago had an expectation of privacy that should not be violated, however supporters say those records held valuable information that those who are adopted are entitled to know.
Indy Politics talks with adoption rights advocate Pam Kroskie of Hoosiers For Equal Access to Records about changes to Indiana’s adoption law and what it means.
