    If she actually did have an abortion, then it should definitely be allowed. It's no different than the billboards you occasionally see with women publicly shaming their cheating husbands.
    I have never seen billboards shaming cheating husbands, but this is a form of harassment and I don't think our public space should be used to cause people emotional pain or damage. This is a form of bullying as far as I am concerned, and this is adults. Adults should set a better example... and if it results in personal loss, discrimination, etc. for his ex, then she has every right to sue his ass off.

    I would agree with you, if it was just a billboard sending a message and he was just a model/actor whatever. However, this message is intended for his ex... though it doesn't mention her name, it is still directed at her. If he is going around and saying her name and saying that billboard is for her, then that changes the whole thing. He is using public space to bully and harass her, and our communities should stand up to all forms of bullying... Children are killing themselves due to harassment and bullying. Bullying of children, adults, or anybody shouldn't be turned into a damn public spectacle or embraced as freedom of speech.

    I don't think so. Abortion is legal. To say someone had an abortion is not a tort, even if they didn't. At least I can't see why it would be.

    But that's what I thought was curious about his board. He didn't use the word abortion. He said, I think, kill. Now that could be a tort, but even then the girl's identity would have to be made known, too.

    I don't know. Lawyers?

Though in this case it's the government force being used against the 1st, not 4th (that was individual, if one wishes to make that argument).
    All I am going to say about the guy is that he seems like a seriously creepy ex boyfriend... taking a billboard ad to gain your attention! I mean, ****, she had an abortion... she decided she didn't want to be with HIM, broke up with him, and had an abortion. This guy comes off as angry and bitter AT HER, and unwilling to let go.

    I'd guess his own behaviour before the abortion and break up, influenced her decision to abort and break up. I am guessing he probably had some kind issues and creeped the poor woman out... Good God, I hope she never has to deal with him again.

    His face is used... If you know him, even casually, you might be able to figure out who he is talking about. Furthermore, he might be telling people personally whom the billboard is about. If it were an actor/model holding a ghost baby, that would be different... If she can't prove the billboard is directed about her, then we wouldn't have probable cause to believe the billboard is about her either... but that's not the case.

    The guy is a creep. This is his ex girlfriend who probably doesn't want to talk to or have anything to do with him. I think this is stalkerish and all around creepy.

    If my ex posted a misleading billboard about me in our community, I'd freak the hell out and try to get it removed.

    LOL... the one that had the abortion/miscarriage.

    How many of his exes had an abortion/miscarriage? If only one did, then it's obvious who he is attacking in the billboard.

    All of them, I hope. Score one for the gene pool.

    Sorry, but virtually positive they'd have to commit a crime.

    Shewolf, assuming she aborted his child, you make it seem like it's odd he's angry.
