-Father of Aborted Child Speaks Out -On a Billboard!

by Dr. D ~ June 7th, 2011

Railroad water tower in Alamogordo, New Mexico...

(Alamogordo, NM via Wikipedia)

A man who was upset that his former girlfriend aborted their unborn child without consulting him posted his feelings on a billboard along the main thoroughfare in Alamogordo, New Mexico. The billboard read:

“This Would Have Been A Picture Of My 2-Month Old Baby If The Mother Had Decided To Not KILL Our Child!”

It also showed a picture of Greg Fultz the potential father holding an outline of an infant.

Although the ex-girlfriend was not named in the billboard or in the press, she sued to get the billboard taken down and a local court agreed with her. Now Fultz is appealing the court ruling and his lawyer says that it is a matter of ‘free speech’.

Response: It will be interesting to see how this plays out in the courts. Other court cases have maintained the mothers rights for an abortion over the objections of the father. However, this case is framed to be all about ‘free speech’ and really doesn’t name the woman. If she hadn’t sued then no one would know who it is except for probably close friends.

This case is well on its way towards going viral with those taking sides depending largely upon ones view of abortion rights. Obviously I sympathize with the father though a billboard is a rather radical response.         *Top
