A New Mexico man said today he will fight to keep up a controversial billboard that suggested his ex-girlfriend had an abortion.
The billboard has a photo ofGreg Fultz holding the outline of a baby with a playground in the background. The large text beside the photo reads, "This Would Have Been a Picture Of My 2-Month Old Baby If The Mother Had Decided To NOT KILL Our Child!"
The sign is on White Sands Boulevard, the main thoroughfare in Alamogordo, N.M., and has been up since mid-May. Fultz's ex-girlfriend Nani Lawrence took him to court with a petition for domestic violence and charges of harassment and invasion of privacy.

Seems like free speech to me.
I don't think the 2nd amendment should be violated just because you don't like what is being said.
That is a form of tyranny.
Do you support free speech, yes or no?

What does "pro-choice" mean?
That is the key question. My last son was born at 26 weeks. He was less than 2lbs, and he is now a healthy 3 year old little monster, and I couldn't live without him.
Does pro-choice mean anyone should be able to abort any baby at any time? Because if that is the case, then some people will be murdering highly developed babies at 30-something weeks that could easily survive on their own!
It is ludicrous for women to assume that men have no emotional attachment to an unborn child. We grow up dreaming of becoming a father the same way women do. When we learn that a woman is pregnant, we run through the fairytale the same as women do. We imagine playing baseball, and learning to drive, and letting them crawl in bed with us during a thunderstorm. If a woman thinks it is entirely her choice to destroy a living being without any input from the father, it is entirely selfish and borderline criminal.
There are plenty of cases where people have been convicted for murdering an unborn child via DUI or assault or even accidents.
NOW, I will also argue the flipside for you,
There is no such thing as "Pro-Life" either. We can't legislate to the majority. Every case is unique. Maybe there is a health issue with the mother or the baby. Maybe the decision is made so early that the baby is not developed and could never survive on its own. Maybe there is an issue of rape or abuse or incest. We can't allow legislation to tie the hands of the doctors and consenting adults.
So, I would never support an entirely "pro-life" agenda, but neither will I support a woman's selfish right to abort a full-term healthy baby without any input from the father.
If there is some solution in the gray middle, then my ears are open.
