scan photo posted online without my consent

My ex boyfriend has posted my scan photo online without my permission. I do not want it on his profile as I have no control over his privacy settings, do not personally know his two hundred and something friends and as it is his profile picture anyone who comes across him on Facebook can view it. As the picture is my unborn child and my womb, I feel I "own" the picture, not to mention the fact that I paid for it! I have asked him to remove it and reported it to Facebook but have not heard back from either him or Facebook. Does anyone know where I stand legally? The unborn child has no birth certificate, so he has no parental responsibilty so technically he could be anyone putting this photo online.

I see your point, but it's his child too.

Could you call him and talk to him if it is really upsetting you?

i think you're over-reacting a bit

it's a scan photo, no-one is going to recognise your uterus or unborn child from it are they?
does it matter if other people see it?
if you were so worried then why did you give it to him in the first place?

honestly, i think you need to ask yourself "does this actually, really, matter?"

are there other underlying issues that are making you feel so strongly about this?

It is a picture of a foetus in the womb - I can't see what harm others seeing this photo will do.

There is no risk of a paedophile changing the photo, of anyone recognising the foetus whilst out and about etc.

Does the picture have your details on it eg name/dob, due date etc? If so you might have grounds for asking it to be removed. Otherwise, does it really matter?

What happens when there is a baby/child - will he not be allowed to put photos on facebook?

Scan pictures do all look the same - what is it that bothers you about it? Will he not be allowed to put pictures of his DS/DD online once born?
