    According to the second link I shared, - go read. Lots more information. He didn't even know if she had a miscarriage or aborted, ffs.

    Re: Jilted ex-boyfriend puts up abortion billboard

    I see this as entirely a legal issue and a question for the courts as per harassment/libel. I simply don't have enough info to judge on that. If she cannot make a legal claim of harassment or libel, then I have no problem with the billboard. Freedom of speech sometimes means the freedom to be an asshole.

    Edit: there is another question here too: if you owned the company that owned the billboard, would you have allowed that billboard to be put up?

    But a Judge already ordered him to take it down

    free speech doesnt allow you to harass or be libel or invade another person privacy like medical history, conditions, procedures.
    Where did you get that idea?

    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.
    What?? How is that allowed? That, and this billboard are definitely harassment.

    Oh, he's definitely a total loser. He took the acronym down, tho, so I'm really not sure what else the courts can do.

    Re: Jilted ex-boyfriend puts up abortion billboard

    I can't see a reason on the face of the Earth why this guy should have to take down this billboard. No personal info, and if you want to argue the point about "had decided to not kill," he could have just countered that its his opinion she did something to end the pregnancy -- medically or naturally or with irresponsible behavior. He could also have countered that he was boinking more than one chick, so how is his ex to know who he's talking about?

    Needless to say, the guy's an idiot douchebag, but I'm not a big fan of infringing on a douchebag's rights simply because they're engaging in douchebaggery.

    Also, I want a Rape Oven.
    I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.
