NEW YORK (AP) — A New Jersey mother who was shocked to learn that her 6-year-old daughter's face was on a provocative anti-abortion billboard in New York says she's angry she hasn't received an apology from the group responsible for the advertisement.

Tricia Fraser of Paterson tells The New York Daily News she was outraged by the ad. It said, "The most dangerous place for African-Americans is in the womb."

Fraser says the picture was taken at a modeling agency two years ago. She says she knew it could wind up being used as a stock photograph but didn't expect anything like this.

The billboard was taken down after blacks complained.

A spokeswoman for the anti-abortion group that created the ad, Life Always, says it won't use the girl's picture again.
