Apparently, folks have been busy contacting their local legislature about the illegal adoptions in Utah. As I mentioned in the Similar Cases section, Utah seems to lead the pack in the number of illegal adoption transactions.
Senator Luz Robles, D-Salt Lake County, said she plans to propose a bill to take on adoption rights for fathers. Right now Utah mothers can give their babies away without the father ever being notified.
“I’ve been getting a lot of phone calls and emails from people saying that they’re concerned that the state of Utah is becoming more, it’s almost like a place where you can buy a baby,” she said.
We can only hope something actually comes of this.
