Barack Obama's Original Birth Certificate

The information below is provided by

"When an adoption is finalized, a new birth certificate for the child is customarily issued to the adoptive parents. The original birth certificate is then sealed and kept confidential by the State registrar of vital records. In the past, nearly all States required a court order for adopted persona to gain access to their original birth certificates. In approximately 29 States, the District of Columbia, American Samoa, Guam and Puerto Rico, a court order is still required to gain access to the original birth certifcate. 12

12 Arizona, Arkansas, California, Connecticut, Florida, Georgia, Hawaii, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maine, Massachusetts, Missouri, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, North Carolina, North Dakota, Oregon, South Carolina, South Dakota, Texas, Utah, Virgina, West Virgina and Wyoming.

The question is if Barack Obama was adopted and a name change was done to Barry Soetoro and a new birth certificate was issued. Would Barack Obama have to get a court order to get a copy of his original birth certificate. The one that is displayed on his smears campaign website.

Access to Original Birth Certificate
Citation: Rev. Stat. 578-14; 578-15; 338-20
If a new birth certificate is issued, the original birth certificate shall be sealed. The sealed document may be opened by the department only by an order of the court or when requested in accordance with 578-15

The birth parent may be provided a copy of the original birth certificate upon request.

If he was not adopted, or if he was adopted and a new birth certificate was never issued, then his original birth certificate would be available to him.

There would be a question on the proof required for the name change in Indonesia.
