The controversial anti-abortion billboard in SoHo will be taken down, Rev. Al Sharpton told the Daily News this afternoon.
The mother of a child who has unwittingly become the face of anti-abortion had voiced concern, wanting the billboard taken down. Metro first wrote about the controversial billboard earlier this week.
Tricia Fraser said she had no idea her daughter's image would be used for anti-abortion billboard in SoHo.
Fraser told Fox today that her daughter’s image was taken from a stock image, originally shot two years ago at a modeling agency.
Now, her daughter, Anissa, is the face of an advertisement declaring, “The most dangerous place for an African American is in the womb.”
The ad drew ire from Public Advocate Bill de Blasio and Council members, all slamming it for being offensive and racist.
The group behind the ad, Life Always, said it is in honor of Black History Month and intended to highlight high abortion and death rates among black women and children.
But Fraser said she’s not on board.
"I would never endorse something like that," she told Fox.
