    Well, it's a bit unclear what the facts in the case are, but the woman claims that she had a miscarriage and not an abortion. If that's true, then possibly the billboard is libel.

    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.

    He didn't mention her name. I don't have a problem with it. Freedom of speech and all that.

    You should have put a ring on her finger first you dumb ****. Seriously, **** you asshole, the abortion is as much your fault as it is hers. This is what happens when you choose not to act like a man; she can kill your children at-will and there isn't dick you can do about it. Way to go, father of the year. I hope you choke on your boyfriend's cock.

    It's hard to really say. I think that for the most part no one would have known anything about the woman had it not gotten the press it did. In and of itself it doesn't name anyone. While the court did order it down, jail time for something like this seems maybe a bit overboard. And then there are really the questions of 1st vs 4th. 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).

    Re: Seriously. A billboard??!

    Wow this is a messy one.

    1st off IMO the guy is a douchbag dick head.

    Now thats out of the way, his name isnt up ther, her name isnt up there so Im not really sure where the legal part comes in.

    Like some one else said if she didnt get an abortion that libel but again, no names were mentioned.

    Also invasion of privacy could apply because its medical history/procedure but again no names were mentioned.

    Tough call indeed . . . . . . .

    Im thinkin its right to take it down, and the jail time is if he doesnt comply with the court order so i have no problem with that.

    Re: Jilted ex-boyfriend puts up abortion billboard

    I don't see why he should.
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    If she had a miscarriage (there is some debate about that in the article), I believe he could be sued for libel, I am not a lawyer though.

    Also, he looks suspiciously like he wants to eat the child.
