‘Save Veronica’ protesters head to Washington to push for adoption law changes
Protesters will lobby Congress to change the Indian Child Welfare Act of 1978, after her adoptive parents in South Carolina lost custody of “Baby Veronica” to her birth father in Oklahoma. The South Carolina couple had raised the girl from birth.
TULSA — After a “Save Baby Veronica” rally earlier this year, organizers told people to hang on to their protest placards “in case we need to go to Washington, D.C.”
Now, they’re heading to the nation’s capital Wednesday, but not quite the way they expected.
