An Act granting equal access to original birth certificates to all persons born in Massachusetts was engrossed and enacted by the House and Senate, and was signed into law by Governor Baker on 8/5/2022. All adoptees born in MA, regardless of date of birth, will have access to their own original birth certificates, effective 11/3/2022! We extend
endless thanks to everyone who has worked to make this happen, but especially to our sponsors, Senator Anne Gobi, Representative Sean Garballey, and Representative Kate Hogan. Click here to read the bills' history during this session.
