    You should all know that the best thing to do is fight foolishness with Photoshop. Here is my rebuttal, and I fully endore anyone to blow it up to billboard size &/or distribute anywhere on the internet.

    Hmmm… his previous billboard printed out is ex’s name: Created for N.A.N.I: National Association of Needed information.

    Worst backronym ever. What does it even mean?

    Then he apparently got scared, or the courts told him to change it: In the picture above it’s been changed to C.A.N.I. Coalition About Needed Information.

    I guess he forgot that he had made a tortured backronym to fit his ex’s name, and actually thought he was onto something, so wanted to keep it just as terrible.

    And yeah. The day a guy dies in childbirth is the day a guy gets “the right” to weigh in on abortion.

    • littlestripes says:

      Exactly. In a perfect world, men and women would always discuss their feelings on children and what they would do if the woman got pregnant before they got naked together, but it’s not a perfect world. Men can’t get pregnant. They can’t give birth. It’s just not their decision.

      That, and if we made some sort of law that required they always were part of the decision, assholes like this would force the woman to give birth to a child she doesn’t want to give birth to.

      Apparently, this woman actually had a miscarriage, but even if she had an abortion, it appears that she had a lot of health problems that would have made carrying a child to term very dangerous, from what I’ve read.

      re: “The day a guy dies in childbirth is the day a guy gets “the right” to weigh in on abortion.”

      That’s baloney. It’s an ethics issue – open to all of humanity. It’s akin to telling a stay-at-home mom, “the day you make the money is the day you get to have a say in how it’s spent.”

            “A purely elective abortion I am afraid I am going to have to disagree with you.”

            That and a box of cookies will get you a box of cookies. This is a very complex issue, on an individual level, every time it is faced. And it is faced and decided by those people with their lives and bodies at stake, every time. Those people should be trusted to make this complex decision based on their own personal circumstances, which you and the rest of the public don’t and can’t know. This should be the end of the discussion. However, it seems that because these people are women, their decisions and considerations are not trusted.

            I’d rather have the box of cookies.

          • Mister44 says:

            I DO like cookies.

            I don’t like people who approach this as “people telling other people what to do with their bodies”. It’s more deciding if human life has inherit value, at what point it becomes valuable, and the ethics surrounding this.

            I also find it so ironic that people who argue the point of their body being theirs and they should be trusted with the choice were at one point trusted with the choice to take one of many measures to avoid conception, yet failed. (Slightly off topic – a male contraceptive may be avialable soon. http://www.wired.com/magazine/2011/04/ff_vasectomy/)

            I do believe there are legit reasons for abortions – but elective ones I can not agree with.

            That said, I don’t think they should be illegal. I also think the way to reduce abortions is by ending the social ills that lead to them, not put up signs or protests.

            I take an approach that is summed up well in this article http://www.theatlantic.com/magazine/archive/1975/09/on-abortion-a-lincolnian-position/4933/

          • teapot says:

            Pro life and Pro contract killer. You have an odd sense of ethics there.

            were at one point trusted with the choice to take one of many measures to avoid conception, yet failed.

            It would be nice if the GOP wasn’t trying to legislate against promotion of contraception.
            http://www.associatedcontent.com/article/1430300/republicans_say_no_to_stimulus_plan.html

            It’s more deciding if human life has inherit value, at what point it becomes valuable
            A pragmatic approach:
            Human life is only as valuable as its constituent parts. Hydrogen, oxygen, carbon, nitrogen, calcium, and phosphorus. A born human is more valuable because personality becomes one of those parts. An unborn human is not much more than a parasite with potential to become something more. Potential that is driven by the continued operation of the mother’s body. Mum dies, so does baby. Giving birth is so called because it is the point at which you give life. Once something is given it cannot be taken back. Before it is given the giver can still choose whether to give or not.

            It’s not very complicated.

          • Iscah says:

            Why would you assume that those people seeking abortions ‘failed’ to use birth control? I’ve used birth control reliably during my marriage (and thanks for assuming that’s my responsibility) but I’m pregnant at the moment.* Even double failsafe birth control isn’t 100%, but the number of people who have the resources for and access to that level of contraception is sadly very low, thanks to the efforts of the anti-abortion, anti-women-having-control-of-their-own-sex-lives movement.

            I appreciate the article you linked to, but I fail to see, still, what place YOU and YOUR opinion have in the process of determining the value of human life, and the ethics surrounding the process. What makes you a more qualified judge or ethicist than I? Nor do I feel you’ve done a very good job identifying what makes an abortion ‘elective’, but no doubt you get to decide.

            *Yes, I’m having the baby. As if it were your business.

        If you cannot have an abortion, then your opinion on the matter is purely secondary. Yes, it is an ethics issue FOR WOMEN WHO CAN HAVE AN ABORTION. PERIOD. And they get to live with the decision they make. All other person’s opinion on the matter, regardless of intent, are irrelevant.

        Yes, I am a bit opinionated on the matter, specifically because of the fact that if all of the abortion advocates had their way, I would have gotten to watch my wife die instead of her being able to terminate a non-viable pregnancy.

        Just like body piercings, if you don’t have any, then your opinion on the matter is totally secondary. I personally don’t want to have your uninformed opinions inflicted upon me as if you have some level of expertise in the matter. There is way too much of that going on already.

  11. Owen says:

    This is libel.

    He’s literally calling her a murderer. Regardless of whether she had a miscarriage or an abortion, she is not a murderer by legal standards (or by any other standards, in my opinion). Thus, he is libeling her, and should be prosecuted.

    He’s also a terrible human being, but that’s not prosecutable.

  12. EeyoreX says:

    Christ, what an a… No, actually, it’s more like “What is this, I don’t even…”

    This guy clearly has some sort of severe mental problem. Assholeism doesn’t really enter into it – no sane person would behave like that. I agree that it’s actually a good thing for society that he’s “flagging” himself in this fashion, wearing his broken personality on his sleeve, but we should be debating ways of making him seek professional help.

  13. Smoakes says:

    She should put up a billboard that says “I had a miscarriage and this man put up a billboard claiming I killed his baby” with a picture of him.
    Hell, I’d donate five bucks to a fund to pay for that billboard.

    Of course it was probably legal for him to do this; free speech and all. But that doesn’t mean it was OKAY or socially acceptable for him to do this. He should never be invited to a party or get laid again.
    Shunning is a socially vital tool, to handle all the things that need to be legal but should never happen.

    What’s also upsetting is that he found multiple people/organizations to help him do this. (I’m assuming he didn’t do the photoshopping, printing, and actual pasting of the billboard up all by himself.) And not one of them said, “Um, crazy asshole guy? No, we’re not doing this.”

      So shame them. Start an internet campaign saying something like: “The New Mexico Right to Life Committee, Coalition About Needed Information and GEFNET support middle-aged pagan asshole to harass teenager girl he impregnated.”

      I admit the “pagan” is a bit unfair, but considering several of these organizations might be very conservative, it’ll probably help shake them up and make them more careful about the crazies they support.

    Interesting all around. My first reaction would, of course, be the whole free speech angle. If my girlfriend had an abortion with getting my buy-in, I’d feel justified in saying awful things about her decision.

    But those awful things would have to be truthful. Period.

    If he didn’t get his facts straight, if an abortion didn’t happen then that billboard is, at minimum, a reprehensible error and an awful overreach. It might also be some sort of actionable harassment.

    If an abortion did occur then…meh. He can scream about how much he’s been hurt in public all he wants, justifiably or not, crazy asshole or not. I’ve seen ex-lovers screaming at each other in public before. Hell, I once knew the dubious joy of standing over a man whose woman just stabbed him in the stomach while we waited for the ambulance and hoped she didn’t get all stabby again. She was standing 10 feet away the whole time and it was pretty clear that if I had left or if any of the other neighbors who showed up immediately had left, she would have finished the job.

    In the vast range of things people do to each other after love goes south this case is flashy but nowhere near the truly evil end of that range.

      Abortion is a legal medical procedure. You would not be justified in saying awful things” about such a thing.

      Not to mention that’s it not your body, and therefore not your final decision. It’s her decision. Period.

      Lastly, this guy is an abusive asshole. Why would you even *want* him to be part of such a decision?

      • benenglish says:

        Perhaps not. But if my girlfriend terminated a pregnancy without telling me (which seems to be what this guy thought was happening) I’d be deeply hurt and might shoot my mouth off about it. I would expect folks to cut me some slack on that score.

        I doubt that I would deserve that slack, though, if I was crazy enough to put my unedited thoughts on a billboard. Clearly, this guy went too far.

        …this guy is an abusive asshole. Why would you even *want* him to be part of such a decision?

        As a general rule, the sperm donor (Is that pejorative enough to convince some of the haters around here to cut me some slack?) should be assumed to have a stake and at least be notified. It’s the decent thing to do.

        In this particular case and based on what’s come to light since the initial posting, this guy seems completely unqualified to provide useful input into the decision. So no, I wouldn’t even want this guy to be a part of such a decision.

        But that’s not the same as saying that no penis-bearer should ever be notified or consulted, that they have no rights, and their feelings don’t matter.

        Sure, it’s *ultimately* the woman’s choice…but there’s a lot that can or should happen before she gets to “ultimately”.

          Really, this guy should have been notified? Go read up on this guy. He is abusive, and a likely stalker. And he should be notified?!

          Sure, it’s *ultimately* the woman’s choice…but there’s a lot that can or should happen before she gets to “ultimately”.

          If the relationship is healthy, then of course that’s what we wish would happen. But that relationship was NOT healthy. Do you really think he would have reacted wonderfully to her saying, “Dear, I’m going to get an abortion!”

          Really?

          He reacted this way when he didn’t even know how the pregnancy ended (it was a miscarriage) — how do you think he would have reacted had she told him she was planning on getting an abortion?

          No, not all men “should” be notified.

          I can’t believe, with all the evidence of what a PSYCHO this man is, you’re still trying to argue what she “should” have done, had it been an actual abortion.

            The guy is just saying that it’s right thing to do in MOST cases to let the ‘sperm donor’ know what is happening and that if his girlfriend aborted he’d shoot his mouth off. But that, and again this was two lines above what you quoted:

          A current girlfriend/wife with whom you otherwise had a decent relationship, sure. And you, whom we’re assuming are a normal, non-stalky kind of guy–sure.

          But this is an ex-girlfriend–and the sort of ex-boyfriend against whom one tends to get restraining orders. You can see what he is.

          For the ex-girlfriend–especially considering the likelihood that any further attempt at contact on her part would be pointedly used as an excuse to harass her–what would be the point of such a discussion?

    • SamSam says:

      So if it’s true, then the billboard is fine with you?

      What if it were someone known around the town, who used the billboard to say “My ex-Girlfriend left me for a woman. She’s a stinking lesbian!” Would that be ok, if it were true? How about a poster of, again, a known person, that said “My ex-boyfriend’s penis is only 2 inches long, and he can only get aroused when I dress like a child!” Would that be ok, if it were true?

      Sorry, no. You can’t use a billboard to share things like that, especially if, as in this case, you’re sharing something that might certainly lead to harassment of the person you’re targeting, or even physical violence towards them.

      • benenglish says:

        …then the billboard is fine with you?

        Oh, no. It’s a total dick move. It’s just that I’ve seen so much worse that I find it pretty tough to get as worked up some of the folks around here.

        Funny you should mention the example of “My ex-girlfriend left me for a woman”. When I was a young teen, my pastor’s wife (Southern Baptist church) left him for a woman. The gossip and vituperative crapola that circulated weren’t on a billboard but were no less public.

        I didn’t think it was OK then. I don’t think it’s OK now. In this particular format, specifically, I said I was open to the behavior being found potentially actionable.

        If all was right in the world, the suggestion elsewhere on this page that the guy be shunned would be effectively invoked.

      I don’t mean we’re going to sterilize you, no not that at all, women are going to get smart and decide not to reproduce with you and will selectively terminate any pregnancy resulting from contact with you. Trust women, trust their choices – I sure as hell don’t tell my husband what to do with his life since we’re partners and he respects me and my choices.

      • benenglish says:

        You are part of the volume of men who should NEVER EVER BE ALLOWED TO REPRODUCE.

        I wrote a half-dozen paragraphs condemning this guy for being a dick while (almost parenthetically) indicating that, beneath the contemptible assholiness, the guy possibly had a bit of a point that terminating a pregnancy without telling the father is also a dick move, a move that might leave him hurt and inappropriately expressing that pain.

        I get the whole “trust women, trust their choices” thing. I agree with it. It’s ultimately her decision and hers alone because she’s the one who’s pregnant. I said nothing that could reasonably be interpreted as denying that reality.

        Yet because I didn’t express perfect condemnation of the man and perfect support for the woman when I didn’t have all the facts, you claim to be able to understand how I think and apparently feel qualified to comment on my suitability to swim in the gene pool.

        Overreact much?

        Abortion, religion, gun control – it just doesn’t pay to try to post a nuanced view about any of the internet holy wars because both sides will open up on you with both barrels.

    I’m developing a few corollaries to the law of absolute free speech. First, a reminder; The Law of Absolute Free Speech states that anyone can say anything at any time and no federal agency can do anything about it, legally. (The Fed can still do what ever they want and the onus is on you to prove what they did was illegal.)

    1. Your rights to free speech end when I tell you to shut up or stop paying attention to you. (Harassment is not protected speech)

    2. Exercising your right to free speech does not confer any immunity from social stigma.

    There will be others. Even if I deplore what you have to say, I may still defend your right to say it but, I will likely consider you to be an ignorant asshole anyway.

    Men are allowed to feel betrayed about not being consulted on the abortion of a child they contributed to. I understand their frustration when they are consulted but their partners decide to abort it anyways. But men need to realize that there is a very big difference between Motherhood and Fatherhood. Culturally, pragmatically, physically, psychologically. I mean, let’s face it, even in the most progressive circles the majority of mothers still do most/all of the childrearing. Some fathers do contribute an equal or greater amount, but this is generally not in the majority (very unfortunate).

    Abortion is hard for everyone, the mother included. But ultimately it is never a man’s choice to decide what a woman should do with her body and her life, ESPECIALLY when he is not in a relationship with that woman. Men need to understand the necessity for support of a woman’s decision. If she does not feel comfortable being a mother (it doesn’t mean she won’t in the future), that choice needs to be respected. Men who respect and who don’t hate women will understand this.

    Just because a man has the ability to impregnate a woman, does not mean he has the license to control what she does with it. Men have to realize this, and the reasonable ones already do. The rest who think they have the right to control the women they’ve slept with really need some serious social rehabilitation.

    I hope for this very young woman to move onto better and bigger things. I hope she’ll avoid dating creepy older abusive sociopathic men. When I was 18 I made a mistake myself with an older creepy man, luckily he wasn’t abusive, just an immature man-child with a drinking problem, but the age difference was weird. These relationships sometimes happens. I’ve learned my lesson and moved on and now demand better for myself. I really hope she does too! She’s way too young for this!

    If her name were on the billboard and she didn’t have an abortion, I think there might be a libel issue, but as it stands I think he’s probably within his rights. Maybe she could file a harassment suit, or something, but would it be worth it? More bad publicity and more contact with that dude for her. Better to just let it go.

    That’s not how you hold a baby.

    “This would have been a photo of my scaring the shit out my 2 month old baby, had it survived to full term, and had my teenaged baby mama let me anywhere near the child, which given my psychotic breakdown after the break up, is pretty un-fucking likely…you know what, if you see me on the street, please haul off and punch me square in the face.”

    There…FIFY.

    That baby in the picture is ‘shopped — it doesn’t even look like him.

    If you have such a problem with abortion, it might be best not to have unprotected sex (or sex at all) with a teenager, who is more likely to feel unprepared for parenthood and exercise her choice to terminate.

    But all speech should be protected. That’s the only way it works. And if it’s not true then I hope there’s pro-choice organization standing by to fund a libel suit.

    That poor girl should sue that bastard and New Mexico Right to Life Committee for libel. That billboard is the epitome of malicious intent.

    He might want to make sure he’s the father, the kid seems to have a bit more melanin than he does.

    Surely this is getting pretty close to a violation of HIPAA. She probably won’t be able to enforce a judgment against this dipshit, but the New Mexico Right to Life Committee is probably good for a couple of bucks.

    And Antinous? *chapeau*

    Mister44@#80: What the holy fuck is a “purely elective” abortion? Mine was certainly my choice…. OHHHHHH I know, you mean you get to be the arbiter of what you consider a “proper” reason for an abortion.

    You’re like my friend that said in front of me once, “I believe in the right to choose an abortion, but I don’t believe in abortion as a form of birth control.” When I pressed her on what she meant, because it certainly is a form of birth control (as in, you get one, you don’t give birth) she meant “Oh you know, just getting one because it’s easier than using the pill or saying no…”.

    I just fucking stared at her.

    Much like a lot of pro-life women will get an abortion because their circumstances are special. After all, the only moral abortion is the one you make excuses for.

  53. IWood says:

    Actually, you know what? It’s neither. That was me swallowing a single-source story whole and making a judgment without any real support for it. I’ve actually got no idea what’s going on here, and because I wasn’t really inclined to look further into it, I should’ve just kept my trap shut.

    This human had sex? Natural Selection is awesome, but too slow in some cases.

  55. pauldavis says:

    I don’t anyone needs to suggest that he can’t put this stuff up on a billboard. The point is that words, like actions, have consequences. And he should face consequences from what he’s done here, even though he had the right to do it. I have the right to be a complete asshole to everyone I know, and if I was, I’d expect something to happen as a result. In this case, shunning seems like it would be a good place to start.

  56. lknope says:

    He’s actually doing worse and accusing her of murder on the billboard. It says “Kill our child” not “abort her fetus” or even “abort our unborn child.” If it didn’t say “pro-life” you wouldn’t be entirely sure what happened. Or what he says happened since it may have been a miscarriage.

    I like the “he refused to marry” being part of the criticism. As in, I don’t like it. He is not a good candidate for a husband or father no matter who he “knocks up.”

    I am friends somebody who actually knows this prick, and he assures me the bastard is in Hog Heaven right now, with all the attention being flung in his direction.
    In fact, the dumb fuck is about as close to a human manifestation of Eric Cartman as is humanly possible, and he not only feels absolutely no regret or shame for anything he’s done during this entire pathetic charade, but he actually thinks it’s all a wonderful, witty joke and is now expecting women to start throwing themselves at him because he just got famous.

    Let this all end, people. Ignore him, and let him die, soon, in the loneliness and contempt he so richly deserves.

  59. nehpetsE says:

    This guy is a total fucktard in EVERY way possible.

    Given that “pro-life” folks have proven quite willing to murder people, This billboard is akin to putting a contract on the teenager he knocked up.

    I’m sure pro-life sites have already posted her home address.

    If it freaks you out to think of a woman aborting your kid, you might try talking before fucking. Most women have a pretty good idea of what they’d do if they got pregnant. If they say yes, I would have an abortion, and that’s unacceptable, you could not have sex with them. Or use a really effective method of birth control and cross your fingers.

    I’m not buying this whole post-abortion trauma thing. Yes, some women might change their minds on the issue after actually being impregnated. It’s a risk. Use a condom. Better yet, encourage her to get a Mirena.

    As for this guy… well, I can’t say anything original about him because it’s all been said. He wanted attention, he got it, and I hope he chokes on something and dies alone.

    Steve Tyler was whining about “post-abortion trauma”, how when he impregnated his 15-year-old legal ward (after throwing out her birth control pills) she went out and got an abortion and it’s still so hard for him cry cry cry. I’m sorry, HE wants sympathy?? I can’t even listen to “Love In An Elevator” anymore. (snif)

    Actually this really *is* libel. If there is a fund to contribute to a suit I would totally be in for a donation.

    If this waterbag was tweeting these things about anyone in the US Gov’t, he would be in prison. I’m probably not the first to think it, but this guy is going to end up killing someone. Sadly, I doubt it will be himself.

  63. TooGoodToCheck says:

    So. . . the big upshot to all this is that from here on out, everybody in the nation knows exactly how unpleasant this guy is. Anyone choosing to date him has been informed about the risks.

    For all the young women who _aren’t_ his ex-girlfriend, this billboard could be a very useful warning.
