Critics have been taking aim at a tweet that was sent by Planned Parenthood on Saturday, with one outlet claiming that the controversial organization "unselfconsciously parodied itself."

"Every child deserves the opportunity to live up to their God given potential. @HillaryClinton #blacklivesmatter," Planned Parenthood wrote before receiving an onslaught of harsh responses.

The tweet was quoting from a statement that Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton uttered during Saturday night's debate, but critics pointed to purported hypocrisy in light of the fact that Planned Parenthood is the nation's largest abortion provider.

"The same organization that snuffs out over 320,000 unborn babies has the gall to talk about children – make that 'every child' – deserving the same opportunity to live out their potential," Dave Andrusko wrote for LifeNews.com, a pro-life website. "They even dragged God’s name into it."

Live Action's Cassy Fiano added, "It’s unbelievable that someone at Planned Parenthood thought this was a good message to send out."

The responses on Twitter were even more pointed.

Christian hip-hop artist Derek Minor responded, "How do #BlackLivesMatter when most abortion clinics are strategically placed in black neighborhoods?"

And writer Mollie Hemingway of the Federalist tweeted back, "My God. And you kill how many per day?"
