New Mexico judge orders removal of billboard lamenting abortion

Catholic World News - June 24, 2011

A judge in New Mexico has ordered the immediate removal of a billboard in which a man laments his girlfriend’s abortion.

The judge told Greg Fultz to take down the billboard, which is currently on display on a main street in the town of Alamagordo. The billboard shows Fultz holding an image of a baby, with a caption that reads: “This would have been a picture of my 2-month-old baby if the mother had not decided to KILL our child!”

Fultz’s girlfriend brought suit against him, saying that the billboard violated her privacy. Fultz counters that the woman is not identified in the sign. He has vowed that he will not voluntarily take down the sign. He will appeal the judge’s order.
