PATERSON - The mother of a girl who was featured on a controversial anti-abortion billboard in New York City is angry that her photo was used in such a manner.

The ad featured a picture of Anissa Fraser with the text, "The most dangerous place for an African-American is in the womb."

Her mother, Tricia Fraser, admits that a contract was signed allowing the photographer to use the picture at his discretion, but that the use of the photo in that context goes too far and that she should have been notified before an ad of such a controversial nature was allowed to be put up.

Fraser is now demanding an apology from the group who paid for the ad, the local chapter of Life Always.

The ad has since been removed after the city received numerous complaints about it.
