The story said  Tricia Fraser filed a lawsuit Tuesday against Texas-based Life Always over the billboard, which some people denounced as racist and offensive.

 

The billboard pictured Fraser’s daughter, who is black, along with the words, "The most dangerous place for an African-American is in the womb."

 

The lawsuit claims the use of her daughter’s image was "defamatory, unauthorized and offensive," the story said. It called the billboard "racist."

 

Though the photograph was obtained legally, the lawsuit claims its license prohibited the use of the image in "defamatory" ways.
