The Duggars have found themselves at the center of controversy once again, due to a social media post by Anna Duggar, who is currently expecting her fourth child

The wife of Josh Duggar, the oldest child of Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar, took to Twitter on Monday to retweet a pro-life post from The Radiation Foundation's Twitter page, which used Black History Month to promote an anti-abortion message. 

The tweet in question read, "Human beings should be remembered not dismembered. #BlackHistoryMonth #BlackLivesMatter #AllLivesMatter" which was accompanied by a poster image that said, "Because of the violence of abortion, over 16 million black people are history."

Both Anna Duggar, as well as the organization, have been criticized for the controversial tweet, which was posted the same day it was revealed that the Northern Ireland's Human Rights Commission won its battle for a judicial review of the region's abortion law (abortions are almost entirely banned there unless there is a direct threat to the mother's life).

"I am full of anger right now," one user wrote, adding that the Duggars should "respect" Black History Month. 

"Seriously?! You didn't really do that, did you? I am literally shaking my damn head...," another added to which The Radiation Foundation responded via Twitter, "If you mean highlight the destruction of human lives who will never be able to make history. Yes. We really did that."

While Anna has yet to respond to the backlash, this certainly isn't the first pro-life post that has popped up on her social media page, nor is it the first time that the Duggars have raised eyebrows for spreading their conservative beliefs. 

Jessa Duggar, the 19 Kids and Counting star who recently wed Ben Seewald, found herself on the receiving end of criticism after she wrote by a controversial blog post equating abortion to Holocaust, following a visit to the museum in Washington, D.C. 

Her father-in-law, Michael Seewald, later defended Jessa on his personal blog, writing, "The Holocaust was the deliberate extermination of a certain class of people...Abortion also is the extermination of a certain class of people deemed unworthy to live. The powers that be have legalized murder just as they did during the Holocaust. Any woman who chooses to may go to an abortion clinic and have her preborn baby violently killed."
