Where I remain confused is the seperation between the OBC and the fact that your birth certificate is a legal document that must contain information for identifcation.
I don't have my ODL (original drivers license), my OSS (original social security card) or my OML (original marriage license) As long as I have the information that is contained in those documents, I can use what I have for ID, why does not having that little piece of paper make it a civil rights issue. What civil right is lacking?
If you tell me it is sentimental, I can appreciate that. (I love the photo of a 16 yr old me in that drivers license picture). But sentimentality is not civil rights.
I support open records to the information but just don't get the legal need for a reissued legal document. Is the battle for the information or the OBC?
