Tricia Fraser filed a lawsuit Tuesday against Texas-based Life Always over the billboard that went up briefly in Manhattan earlier this year.

Life Always did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

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.” 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.
