The Ex-Boyfriend from Hell

Jilted Ex-boyfriend Puts up Abortion Billboard

Wow. This guy is a total jackass. Even if her name or picture isn’t on the billboard, Alamogordo NM isn’t that big of a city. ~35K. It wouldn’t be too hard to figure out who she is. They already identified her as Nani Lawrence, but I’m pretty sure a lot of people knew before the papers reported it.

She and her friends say that she had a miscarriage. The kicker is that he doesn’t know if she had a miscarriage or an abortion. What the hell?? He doesn’t know, yet the billboard basically accuses her of killing their child? New Mexico Right to Life has withdrawn their endorsement and asked that their name be taken off the board. Good call.

She sued him for harassment and invasion of privacy, successfully. The billboard is coming down. Of course, the ex from hell is appealing it.

This whole case leaves me confused. Is it libelous because she had a miscarriage and not an abortion? Can it even be libel if her name isn’t on the billboard?

All I know is that if this ends up in the Supreme Court, and the sign is allowed up because of Freedom of Speech, I hope she gets even. She should get a billboard, and put it up right next to his if possible. It should say, “This is why he is my EX-boyfriend” with an arrow pointing at his billboard.

The lesson here is to be careful to avoid pregnancy. Birth control. And if you decide to ignore that sage advice, then choose who you sleep with wisely. You do not want a guy like this to be the father of your kids.
