I’m all for father’s rights. I think they should be co-equal with mother’s rights just as soon as the child is born.
Before the child is born? When we’re just talking about cells that are parasitically living off of the mother in an invasive way as they mangle the woman’s organs, while the father says things like “you want ice cream and pickles, jeeze” then I think it’s okay to have the mother’s rights supersede the father’s.
Of course, there are tough cases. When the mother wants to get an abortion while the father wants her to bring the child to term, the situation calls for a reasoned and compassionate solution. As we think through what to do in these situations, we need calm and respectful discourse.
You know, the kind of things that work great on a giant billboard in the center of town…
The Associated Press reports (gavel bang: ABA Journal) that a pissed off husband named Greg Fultz has been order to take down his billboard. He says it’s a matter for Pro-Life free speech. The judge says he’s harassing his ex-wife. I say he’s just being an a$$hole. What do you say?
Here’s the sign:
Whatever dude. This WOULD NOT HAVE been a problem had you Used a CONDOM!
In any event,
But Fultz’s attorney said his client is adamant about protecting his free speech rights and will appeal.
“He said he is prepared to go to jail for this,” attorney Todd Holmes said.
“His position is that this billboard is not really about her. It’s about his statement of fathers’ rights.”
It was unclear if the woman had an abortion or a miscarriage.
“Unclear”? Is it possible that this woman pulled a Kay Adams-Corleone on this guy; told him it was a miscarriage when actually it was an abortion?
Because the only, and I mean ONLY, justification for this sign would be if she lied to Gary Fultz about having a miscarriage for a while, and then told him:
“It wasn’t a miscarriage. It was an abortion. An abortion, Gary. Just like our marriage is an abortion. Something that’s unholy and evil. I didn’t want your son, Gary! I wouldn’t bring another one of you sons into this world! It was an abortion, Gary! It was a son Gary! A son! And I had it killed because this must all end!”
Can we just make that the Kay Adams-Corleone rule? If a woman lies to you about a miscarriage and then tells you she actually aborted your kid because “this must all end,” then you are allowed to take out a huge sign in your town calling her out.
And if that’s not what happened, you’re not being a pro-life crusader, you’re just being a dick.
