An angry New Mexico man, jilted by his lover, lashed out and paid to have a billboard ad put up in which he states that his ex-girlfriend had an abortion against his wishes.
The billboard, in Alamogordo, New Mexico has sparked a legal battle over privacy issues and free speech. The ex-girlfriend has now taken Greg A. Fultz to court accusing him of harassment and a violation of her privacy. A domestic court official has recommended that the billboard be removed, but the man’s attorney argues that the billboard’s removal violates his client’s right to freedom of speech.
The billboard, which is along the town’s main road shows the 35-year-old man holding the outline of a baby. The text reads, “This Would Have Been A Picture Of My 2-Month Old Baby If The Mother Has Decided To Not KILL Our Child!”
The woman’s friends say she miscarried, and did not have an abortion.
The anti-abortion Right to Life New Mexico group said that despite their name being on the billboard, they no longer endorse Fultz’s billboard.
“As the situation and time went on we received additional information from others that it no longer seemed in the best interest of Right to Life to participate in the billboard.,” said Betty Eichenseer, the president of RTLNM.
