Talk about “psycho ex.”
According to Tampa Bay Online, a New Mexico man publicized his break-up by making a billboard ad claiming his former girlfriend aborted their child against his wishes.
The sign, which can be found on Alamogordo’s main thoroughfare, features 35-year-old Greg Fultz cradling the outline of a baby. The text reads, “This Would Have Been A Picture Of My 2-Month Old Baby If The Mother Had Decided To Not KILL Our Child!”
Fultz’s ex-flame is suing him for violation of privacy and harassment. A domestic court official has recommended the billboard be taken down.
The woman may not have even had an abortion in the first place. Friends of the ex-girlfriend told the Albuquerque Journal that she had a miscarriage.
But Fultz’s lawyer attests that the billboard reflects reality.
“My argument is: What Fultz said is the truth,” Todd Holmes said, adding that Fultz acted within his free speech rights. “As distasteful and offensive as the sign may be to some, for over 200 years in this country the First Amendment protects distasteful and offensive speech.”
Attorney Ellen Jessen is looking out for the ex-girlfriend’s rights and said her client’s personal life is of no concern to the public.
“Nobody is stopping him from talking about father’s rights. … but a person can’t invade someone’s private life,” Jessen said.
