you know what, if her info wasn`t on the billboard, then I don`t think so. but I think the whole pro-life thing is bupkis and the billboard was in HORRIBLE taste. sorry, but as a Black, agnostic, bi-sexual, I am damn tired of people telling me what I can/can`t do with my body and my life.

That makes no sense at all, of course the father of a child should have to pay child support if he is not the primary custodian.

When a woman is pregnant, she does not lose the right to control her body to her male partner or anyone else. If she doesn`t want to have a baby, then she doesn`t want a baby. The man has no say over her body one way or another, because it is HER body NOT his.

One the other hand, when the child is born and can live on it`s own, it has nothing to do with the woman`s rights vs. the man`s rights it has to do with the child`s right.

The child must be supported financially and it is the responsibility of both parents, unless BOTH of them decide to give up their rights and put the child into the custody of the state.

If the risks and costs nor decision are not his, then neither should be the cost and responsibility.

She should not be able to sue for child support.

Or are you trying to have it both ways?

If a man or "father" could step in and fill the role of the fetus`s host and assume all the costs and risks then he should be allowed to do so. Until then it`s really no his decision. Pregnancy has it`s risks and costs which a man simply can not negate or chose to take on himself. If the risks and costs are not his, then the decision is really not his either.

@MeGrendel Yes, the "LAW" is good enough for me. Thank you for sharing your previously uncited source, it does appear that 21 states recognize the killing of a fetus as "fetal homicide" from the point of conception. Interesting, but irrelevant.

The Supreme Court still does not define abortion as the "killing" or "murder" of a human being. So as far as the law is concerned, the sign is still untrue and potentially libelous. She didn`t kill anyone.

There is also a difference between killing a fetus, say by stabbing it through the mother`s stomach, and the mother simply denying it the right to live inside of her at her bodies expense. If it could live then it would, no one is actually killing it, but it can`t live without a human woman`s body to support it so it doesn`t.

If a man or "father" could step in and fill the role of the fetus`s host and assume all the costs and risks then he should be allowed to do s

Wendypants-"Pro-choice, as a woman`s body is her own..."

Ergo, anything within a woman`s body is her own.

Ergo, women have no right to ask for child support for any child she has without consulting the man.

For that matter, the same argument holds true for my tax money. I didn`t have any say so in her having a child. So she shouldn`t qualify for WIC.

Sounds fair.

NotTHATbored-"where are you getting your information about these "most states""

The LAW good enough for you?

National Conference of State Legislatureslists is by state. In all 34 state recognize a fetus as a victim.

Also, it is NATIONAL law. It`s called the `Unborn Victims of Violence Act of 2004" and was signed into law. Its definition is "a member of the species Homo sapiens, at any stage of development, who is carried in the womb".

Please see:
Title 18, Chapter 1 (Crimes), §1841 (18 USC 1841) and
Title 10, Chapter 22 (Uniform Code of Military Justice) §919a (Article 119a).

"Right on freedom of speech."

An abortion is a medical procedure. Why should freedom of speech allow someone to disclose a part or parts of a woman`s medical history in a way that may defame her character and damage her financially? Shouldn`t people have to consent to have their medical information shared? Especially when she explicitly has requested that information not be made public? I think people have a right to privacy when it comes to their medical history.

NotTHATbored-" think you are confusing the issue here. There is in fact no legal precedent saying that getting a legal abortion is "killing" a child, so as far as the law is concerned she did not "kill" anyone."

I didn`t confuse the issue at all, seeing as I was not taking issue with the law. My statement read, "many people consider aborting a child `killing`." Which is a true statement. The law is a different issue. By law she did not kill her child. Not everyone agrees with this law. (but it IS the law)

"There may be a precedent that murdering a pregnant woman after a certain point her pregnancy constitutes as a double murder"

For most states in the US, ANY point of her pregnancy constitutes murder of the unborn:
Alabama: "an unborn child in utero at any stage of development, regardless of viability"
Alaska: "at any stage of development, who is carried in the womb."

So what do you think should happen if they want different and mutually incompatible things? Father wants the baby, mother wants an abortion - how does your "decided between BOTH parents" work then?

I see it as a deception trying to prettify a very ugly situation. There is no way to have both parents decide, no way at all. Next step is usually saying that she should listen to him, blah blah. Also a deception trying to prettify a very ugly situation. An emperor might decide to listen to a serf, but that doesn`t mean they have an equal say in running the empire.

I think the man should be kept as ignorant as possible as often as possible, preferably never knowing there was a pregnancy. He`s utterly powerless and can do nothing but suffer. There`s no need to rub his face in it. That`s just nasty.

It way to hard to sit here and judge either of them with out knowing the full story, She should have talked about it more with him (If/before) she made any decisions, and he shouldn’t have put the billboard up. They both need some councilling or something.

There may be a precedent that murdering a pregnant woman after a certain point her pregnancy constitutes as a double murder, but that point is almost certainly past the point where you can have a legal abortion. It would almost certainly fall into the same time period as the outlawed "partial birth abortions" where, yes, doctors actually kill the child not just remove it.

Ok first off, abortions are not legal everywhere,where this was done it might be. But the point is that there is no reason or rhyme behind it. People would be just as p`d if someone who is all for abortions had a billboard erected portraying a mother murdered by her own son. (With the caption : If they`d only had let her get an abortion.) People do stupid things all the time. She did stupid in some eyes, he did stupid in others`. Stupid makes the world go `round people.

Unless you are anti-war, nonviolent as much as possible, and vegan, you are not "pro-life". Jains, technically are the most "pro-life" of belief systems. Being against abortion is tactfully called pro-fetus (pro-fetus rights).

Many so-called "pro-life" people are really more about mandatory pregnancy.

I`m saying if a man wants to manipulate a woman who is disabled, then he is weak and needs to be carried off to La-La land. However, if a man stands up and will make the 3:00 a.m runs to the store, be pregnant himself and experience what it truly is like to be pregnant, then by all means I will listen to his past experience and what he has to offer.

for_lillian-"For him to say that the mother KILLED his baby suggests that the baby was actually born"

Many, many people consider aborting a child `killing`. Just because you disagree does not make them wrong (nor you right).

As mentioned earlier, there is legal precedent that killing an unborn child is not only `killing` but can also be classified as murder.

If a woman wants a man to `keep their idiotic noses out of a woman`s reproductive parts` then they need to make sure that the men keep THEIR reproductive parts out of hers. The child is a product of both, and the responsibility of the same.

But, if you think a woman`s `reproductive parts and choices` are hers, and hers alone, then the child is hers, and hers alone, and you agree that she should not be able to go after the guy for child support if they choose to birth it.

Or, are you attempting to have it both ways? (of course you are)

For him to say that the mother KILLED his baby suggests that the baby was actually born, which is a felony had a murder been committed. Again, not going into pro-life vs. pro-choice, but he does state he doesn`t know if it was a miscarriage or abortion, just that he *suspects* it was an abortion. He named his organization the same name as his ex.

Jen: while I agree there should be more resources available to men regarding the loss of a child for whatever reason, the moment a cisgendered male carries a fetus to term for 9 months, morning sickness, prenatal pills, and care, then he can have the 50/50 say in what happens.

If the woman actually had a miscarriage, then this is a jerk move, but he still shouldn`t be brought up on defamation. She isn`t actually identified on the billboard and he`s some nobody, so her character isn`t really being defamed by the billboard. Further, when her likeness is not being used and she is not mentioned by name, anything he does has nothing to do with her and he should be free to do what he will. He shouldn`t be tied to her, unable to do or say anything that might reflect badly on her, simply because they once dated.

It can`t work that way. If they disagree, one has to have the final say. That`s the only say that matters, so the only possible scenario is that one has absolute power and the other has absolutely nothing. Anything else is just a facade covering the truth, a deception.

The text cut off for no reason at the end of the last post read:

If so, go tell that to someone who`s just had a miscarriage.

Since I`m forced to go into a second post, I`ll write some more.

Subjectively (and that`s what matters when it comes to psychological harm), it is possible for a person to regard a foetus as being their baby before birth. And, radical idea though it is, I regard men as being people.

Of course they can, because they have political power. Anyone with enough power can have anything as many ways as they want, that`s how it works.

As is often the case, I have an unusual opinion. I expect rage from both sides.

I regard abortion on demand as the least bad option available, so I think it should be legal and available.

The reason I think of it that way is personal autonomy, so it follows that I think that only whoever is pregant should have any legal rights on the subject.

Where I am apparently weird is that I don`t consider it a good thing to dehumanise men.

Despite what many people think, men are people and can suffer psychologically. There should be compassion for men whose children are killed and who can do nothing to protect them.

You can argue that they aren`t children until they`re born, so the men have no reason to be upset.

His original organization was N.A.N.I. which happens to be the same name of his ex in question. Her uterus is her business regardless of abortion or miscarriage, not the business of the public. He owes child support to his other children, yet spends $1,300 to erect this billboard. His twitter includes a lot of jokes about DV, wanting to harm and kill his ex. Nani was 17/18 when she was pregnant, disabled, and this guy is in his 30`s. He has a past history of harassing women. He has stated he`s for abortion sometimes, so he`s not exactly a pro-choice kind of person. He`s not even sure if his ex had an abortion or miscarriage, just that one day she was pregnant and one day she wasn`t. You will find a lot of interesting things when you Google this guy.

@DixxyRarr I totally agree with you. that`s my thinking. If you know how to make a baby and you know the ways to prevent having a baby plus the effectiveness, yet you still chose to do them then that was your choice and the baby is the result. But whatever, what really annoys me is having the gov`t all up in the abortion business. Just protect the country and let folks handle themselves.

You want to know why they charge you with 2 murders if you kill a woman when she`s pregnant? Because for all intents and purposes, that was going to be a life that the murderer had no right to end.

The woman can choose to end that life before it starts because, well, it`s her body and she has the right to that choice. The murderer did not have the right to make that choice. I find it hard to believe you couldn`t think of that on your own.

However, the discussion here should be whether or not he has the right to put this billboard up. You`re damn right he does.

Also, consider this: Many,many years ago, 2 poor,single women became pregnant and opted for abortions. Both ultimately decided against it and had their babies. In so doing, one mother gave birth to Leonardo da Vinci and the other gave birth to Adolph Hitler. So you see, this argument could go on indefinitely.

There are many states that will charge someone with two counts of murder when the person killed is pregnant (at least 23 to 25 weeks...can`t remember). So by that reasoning, abortion should also be illegal as well. Tell me why that isn`t the same thing. You Pro-lifers cannot have it both ways.
On a personal note, I`m against abortion but it`s for moral reasons. I personally think if you`re going to stick your dick in a woman then you damn well better be prepared to accept all consequences of that act. Condoms aren`t 100% effective but they help. But when they break, what are you going to do? Sue Trojan and make them raise the kid? Bottom line is we, as a species, need to accept responsibility for our actions. It is only our own moral guidance that will allow us to raise a better generation than our own and really, isn`t that what we want to do anyway?

Its really annoying when people use that as a argument to support abortion. A females egg and a males sperm are just that...it is when they join that a human begins to form. Sperm is nothing without the egg and vice versa. THAT is why women have periods because the egg is useless without the sperm to fertilize it.

Although I feel his pain for wanting a child, she was going to do what she wanted to do no matter who deems it right or wrong. People can argue it until they`re blue in the face but the fact is there are women who don`t care to have children at a particular time and find abortion to be the best way to "get rid of the problem" Of course this doesn`t include victims of rape, my heart goes out to those poor women/girls. Hell even if abortion was made illegal everywhere and a woman REALLY didn`t want that child, she would probably risk her life in getting illegal operations. I`m Pro life all the way, but I`m also realistic. At the end of the day people will do what they want to do, consequences be damned.

Regardless of whether or not she had an abortion, I think it`s a good thing that this baby didn`t end up tying the girl to this batpoo crazy douche.

@totterhey In the US, I think free speech applies to everything except speech that would specifically incite violence (ie` fighting words`), if I remember the constitution right (which I probably don`t).

The woman says she miscarried.

This guy`s probably just insane.

But he has the right to be insane on a billboard as long as it doesn`t identify who she is.

It`s only free speech if you`re making a point or discussing an issue, that happens to offend someone involved. If you`re just going out defaming and slandering someone then you can STFU. If I put up a billboard saying "JOE BLOGGS HAS SEX WITH CHILDREN", where are all the tools who believe I have some kind of right to say that?

Well, if he`s the father I can understand an abortion.
God, that baby would be ugly.

Let`s step back and look at this from diffrent angles. On one hand, the dude is understandably upset, however, does anyone else think he over reacted by putting up a billboard? You handle your emotions in a mature fashion, ex: getting some therapy, talking it out etc. What you don`t do is act irrationally and out of spite and erect a billboard. Now as for the woman, do I think she should have told him? Yes. But perhaps it was an accidental pregnancy (birth control mishap, etc) and she was not ready to be a mother. Is that her fault? No. The answer isn`t simply "well then she shouldn`t have had sex" we`re humans with an inate desire to f*ck. We`ve simply managed to find ways around gettting pregnant. There are a lot of variables that we are completely unaware of.

Since it`s not a picture of her, and her name is`t on it, I don`t see where there`s anything wrong with it.

Overall, dick move, but within his rights I suppose...

That said... If she hadn`t let her own name out of the bag, and it had somehow been traced to her, THEN she could get him for all kinds of sh*t.

Also, apparently his site says "the tragic event my ex was pregnant and lost the baby but didn`t bother to tell me how. so I assume the worst i believe the baby was aborted." So he ASSUMED she had an abortion, even though she/her friends say it`s a miscarriage.

Pro-life is pretty damn irresponsible. What if the baby is an alien? Or a f*cking Ghost?! Huh? HUH? Take that, pro-life ghost supporters.

I`m iffy on this. He has freedom of speech but it`s also defamation of character and it`s infringing on her rights because it`s airing her private medical matters [whether it`s true or not] to the whole world without her consent.

As for the campaign itself, it isn`t going to persuade anyone. A lot of women wouldn`t have the support of the child`s father, and the child`s father being involved doesn`t solve the fact that she has to go through 40 weeks of an unwanted pregnancy, with permanent damage to her body [some less serious such as stretch marks, some a lot more serious life long health problems, not to mention the cost of pregnancy and child rearing]. It`s honestly something that should be discussed *before* having sex, so if you don`t like the choice your partner would probably make, you can choose to not sleep with them in the first place.

this is disgusting and that man is a drating animal. the woman had a miscarriage and he had the nerve to rub it in her face with this distasteful act? This is blatant harassment in my eyes, especially because of the emotional distress it caused the woman it was directed at.

@Elderban,

not true, the ladies FRIENDS say she didn`t have an abortion, if I needed support I`d go to my friends too, because they will LIE for me as well.

After reading the (full story) I agree that he has a right to keep the billboard up, it may be controversial and unpopular (like the westboro baptist church) but the 1st amendment allows for free speech.

I support this message, and find it so sad that there wasn`t a thing that this man could do to save his unborn child. HE/She was as much his as he/she was hers.

GO PRO-LIFE......
