Actually, Fultz acknowledges, he isn't sure whether his ex, Nani Lawrence, terminated her pregnancy because she won't tell him. Regardless, he explains that while the billboard is "inspired" by his life events, it's not intended to target his ex. Its primary purpose is to serve as a much broader pro-life message, Fultz said.
"My original intentions when I started this campaign were quite simple," Fultz told ABC News. "I just wanted to shed the light on pro-life issues and fathers' rights. I have had no closure over my own personal loss and that's where the billboard came into play."
For Lawrence's part, her friends say she had a miscarriage, not an abortion, according to the Albuquerque Journal. Lawrence has taken Fultz to court for harassment and invasion of privacy. The court case focuses on the debate over constitutional rights to free speech (Fultz's) and to privacy (Lawrence's).

From Huffington Post:
A New Hampshire man is accused of faking a severe brain injury to trick a nurse into changing his soiled adult diaper.
Investigators in Hooksett say Eric Carrier impersonated his own father and posted classified advertisements on Craigslist seeking an in-home caregiver to assist his son, who Carrier claimed had been injured in a car accident.
"He had no disability. He wasn’t in a car accident," Hooksett Police Detective Janet Bouchard told the Union Leader.
When a nurse arrived at the house in March to discuss future care arrangements, she couldn't find the man who she thought had hired her -- only the 23-year-old suspect who was behaving as though he was suffering from a mental disability, according to police.
Believing that Carrier had been left home alone and was unable to care for himself, the nurse changed his diaper.
But she became suspicious when no one called her back to arrange for future visits and then alerted police.
Carrier has been charged with indecent exposure.
"He exposed himself and it caused alarm to this nurse," Bouchard said. "He brought her there under false pretenses."
FARMINGTON, Conn. -- Connecticut police say a man punched himself in the face, tore his shirt and threw his wallet and keys in a river to convince police he had been assaulted -- and wasn't a drunk driver.
Farmington police said Monday that Daniel Vagnini was arrested after reporting that he has been assaulted, then admitting he made up the story.
According to police, the 22-year-old Farmington man sped through a stop sign and nearly crashed into a car. Police say they later found his car and heard Vagnini in the woods. He told police he had been drinking in Hartford and was assaulted and blacked out.
Vagnini was charged with reckless driving, evading responsibility and driving under the influence.
A woman who returned a message left at Vagnini's home said the family would have no comment.
