i agree, my dh said "why is he doing that, that is his business, not for the public,, blah blah"
and i said, because he's mad that he doesn't really have a say in what she does with her body...
if she did have an abortion, and he wanted to father the baby, look at it from his point of view...

he didn't say one word..

Tough call really. I am a firm believe in both fathers' and mothers' rights, and there is no right answer in this situation.

I do understand why the man put the billboard up; he put it up because he is hurt and angry because he feels a great loss. Think of the pain that a woman feels when she loses a child that she wanted. I imagine that a man feels that exact same pain when he loses a child. Some people retreat into their pain, some belt it out for the whole world to see.

Too bad it ever has to come to these decisions for men and women.
