Last year, Jessa Duggar sparked controversy when she likened abortion to the Holocaust. And now it appears her sister-in-law, Anna Duggar, is taking a page out of the newlywed’s book — by using Black History Month to spread her pro-life message.
On Feb. 2, the pregnant star of ‘19 Kids and Counting’ took to Twitter to share a message from a pro-life organization, which read, “Because of the violence of abortion, over 16 million black people are history too.”

Fans were quick to criticize not only Anna, but also the Radiance Foundation (who posted the original picture) for using Black History Month and #BlackLivesMatter — a movement dedicated to bettering the lives of African Americans — to endorse their own interest.
“Wow this is so offensive I cannot think of what to tweet! This should be removed,” one Twitter user wrote.

Another added, “You have no idea of the struggles and heartaches of being African American has been and is [and] how hard it is to get people to accept Black History Month as a month in general. How growing up in school and it never being mentioned in a curriculum at all can truly hurt those of the African American community.”
