on Blast!

***Please take a second to [carefully] read this billboard***

A New Mexico man’s decision to lash out with a billboard ad saying his ex-girlfriend had an abortion against his wishes has touched off a legal debate over  free speech and  privacy rights.

The sign on Alamogordo‘s main thoroughfare shows 35-year-old Greg Fultz holding the outline of an infant. 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-girlfriend has taken him to court for harassment and violation of privacy. A domestic court official has recommended the billboard be removed.  But Fultz’s attorney argues the order violates his clients 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,” Todd Holmes said.

The Supreme Court recently weighed in on the distasteful “Free Speech” of the Westboro [former] Baptist Church Cult and I want you to please respond to what the billboard says.

What do you think is he justified or is this wrong?

Where does your free speech end?
