When is the First Amendment officially being abused? This scenario is a perfect example of abuse. A man is not happy with his ex-girlfriend’s decision to have an abortion (which she insists was a miscarriage) and he goes out and pays for a billboard that reads:
“This Would Have Been A Picture Of My 2-Month Old Baby If The Mother Had Decided To Not KILL Our Child!”
Also on the billboard, he is holding the silhouette of a baby. Greg Fultz, 35, is arguing that his ex-girlfriend robbed him of his choice, but the ex got herself an attorney and took him for to court for violation of privacy as well as harassment. When is enough enough? The first amendment argument has long been a point of controversy. So many groups (and individuals, in this case) hide behind it and are not held accountable for their actions because of it. There are very few cases where the first amendment is being used for the right reasons.
According to Fox News, the court has suggested the billboard be removed. This would be the first time that the argument over the first amendment rights would overshadow abortion rights.
