Petition to put fathers names back on original birth registrations for Ontario adoptees

For those who are not aware, please read Cat Hen's following description posted on the new Ontario Government’s Idea Board: 
“From 1960 to 1980, unwed father's names were illegally removed/omitted by the Ontario government. Many parents were illegally denied the right to name the father despite the law at the time allowing them to. Father's gave their consent. Many of these people are Aboriginal adoptees who were wrongly taken from their families. The UN has now asked the Ontario government TWICE to restore these names of adoptees as it affects Aboriginal rights. The UN Special Rapporteur Professor Anaya is disgusted that the Ontario government still refuses to do so, hurting Aboriginal families. Many parents still want the names put back for adoptees and many fathers are still giving their consent to do so.”
“Please restore these names as the UN has requested. Otherwise, how can this be fair and just to those who are being punished simply for being adopted? They are being denied human rights that the UN has said numerous times that they are entitled to and that all other Canadians enjoy.”
Please vote YES on this issue and share widely. The more votes we can get the better. She is trying to get the government to restore the illegally removed/omitted unwed father's names back onto the original birth registrations of adoptees. To get the Ontario government to notice, we have to give this post as many YES votes as possible.
To find the post, register then just type in "adoptee" or "birth registrations" and vote on the post when you locate it.
Here is the link for that. Many thanks for your support. ~ Cat Hen

As the single largest unregulated industry in the United States, adoption is viewed as a benevolent action that results in the formation of “forever families.”
The truth is that it is a very lucrative business with a known sales pitch. With profits last estimated at over $1.44 billion dollars a year, mothers who consider adoption for their babies need to be very aware that all of this promotion clouds the facts and only though independent research can they get an accurate account of what life might be like for both them and their child after signing the adoption paperwork.

Why tribes do not recommend the DNA swab

Rebecca Tallbear entitled: “DNA, Blood, and Racializing the Tribe”, bearing out what I only inferred:

Detailed discussion of the Bering Strait theory and other scientific theories about the population of the modern-day Americas is beyond the scope of this essay. However, it should be noted that Indian people have expressed suspicion that DNA analysis is a tool that scientists will use to support theories about the origins of tribal people that contradict tribal oral histories and origin stories. Perhaps more important,the alternative origin stories of scientists are seen as intending to weaken tribal land and other legal claims (and even diminish a history of colonialism?) that are supported in U.S. federal and tribal law. As genetic evidence has already been used to resolve land conflicts in Asian and Eastern European countries, this is not an unfounded fear.
