Man posts billboard condemning ex for abortion
By Sam Adams [ Fri Jun 24 2011 3:44 PM ]
Greg Fultz says his ex aborted their child. So the 35-year-old college student put up a billboard about it. The billboard, which shows Fultz happily cradling the silhouette of a an illustrated infant, reads "This Would Have Been A Picture of My 2-Month Old Baby If The Mother Had Decided Not To KILL Our Child!"
She sued him and said the baby was miscarried.
Fultz had financial help sponsoring the roughly $13,000 ad, but not all abortion rights supporters are happy with the move. Right to Life New Mexico, which is listed as an endorser on the sign, asked to have its name taken off.
Fultz, meanwhile, is clear in his intentions. “I wanted to get out this message. I felt it was important and powerful enough to maybe sway one person’s mind from having an abortion.” A judge ruled that billboard must come down, but Fultz' lawyer says the ruling would infringe upon Fultz' constitutional rights. At the time of this post, it still stands beside the main thoroughfare in Alamogordo, N.M.
