Right to Life New Mexico distances itself from anti-abortion billboard
Right to Life New Mexico is distancing itself from a controversial anti-abortion billboard that appeared in Alamogordo over the weekend. RTLNM is looking to have its name removed from the advertisement.
The billboard shows a man looking down at an outline of a baby and says, “This Would Have Been A Picture Of My 2-month Old Baby If The Mother Had Decided To Not KILL Our Child!”
The billboard is the work of Alamogordo’s Greg A. Fultz, who is featured in the billboard:
Fultz told the Alamogordo Daily News that the billboard is “merely a statement about anti-abortion and pro-life.” He says RTLNM originally agreed to endorse the billboard and have the organization’s name featured on it.
Betty Eichenseer, the president of RTLNM, said the group initially agreed to endorse the billboard, “but as the situation and time went on we received additional information from others that it no longer seemed in the best interest of Right to Life to participate in the billboard.”
Fultz also posted a YouTube video of the billboard being erected.
The billboard, installed on White Sands Boulevard, also bears the name of a group Fultz created called the National Association of Needed Information, although he tells the Daily News that it isn’t yet “an official organization.” It also bears the name of Fultz’s company, GEFNET.
Fultz told the Daily News he started the organization because of an incident that happened to him with a woman where “there was a pregnancy, then there wasn’t.”
“It’s my belief that fathers should have a say regarding pregnancy,” Fultz told the paper. “Women have all the power when it comes to pregnancy. The men get no say when a woman wants to go and have an abortion without the say of the father.”
