Should adopted adults be able to reverse their adoptions and have all legal ties restored with natural families.

I accept this challenge and will be taking the stance that adopted adults should not be able to reverse their adoptions and have all legal ties restored with natural families.

Pro, please present your initial arguments so I have material to refute.

Good luck!

Well, my opponent has forfeited. I'm not sure what to post, because in order to make this fair I will not present arguments.

Good luck to my opponent, that is if he doesn't forfeit again! ;)

What do you mean by legal ties? (itemize)

So, wait, are we assuming

A) said adult knows who their natural parents are, and
B) their natural parents consent to the change?

Also, what are you suggesting changes in the event that such a reversal occurs? Is it viewed as retroactive? What legal process is required for such a reversal?

I think it should be legal. Is it currently not? I think as an adult, more than any other time in your life is it important to feel in control of who you are and your own life. Especially as to who you physicically, morally, and legally are. End of discussion. Adopted people would choose , i think to remain "adopted" because of the good meaning that name has come to represent. If you want to be part of your biological family, there's no reason why they shouldn't be allowed to. That'd be kind of cruel.
