This week, our country is mourning the loss of 49 people’s lives and the wounding of 53 more in a horrific mass shooting early Sunday at a gay night club in Orlando, Florida.

The horrific act of violence is being blamed on radical Islamic terrorists; but Planned Parenthood quickly politicized the tragedy for its own gain. On Sunday, its PP Black Community arm tweeted a message blaming “toxic masculinity” for the tragedy.

The New York Times described the incident as the worst mass shooting in history. According to the report, the lone gunman, allegedly Omar Mateen, called police during the rampage and claimed allegiance to the Islamic State.

However, as the Media Research Council‘s Ashley Rae Goldenberg first observed, Planned Parenthood said the attack did not have anything do with Islam but with “imperialist homophobia” and “toxic masculinity.”

In a second tweet, the abortion business wrote, “Toxic masculinity enables rapists & rape culture, violent heterosexism & attacks on reproductive freedom.”

Planned Parenthood faced some backlash for the tweets, with people criticizing the abortion group for bashing men and defending Islam in the wake of such violence.

Pro-life advocate Ryan Bomberger also discovered the tweets and replied:

Several celebrities and pro-abortion journalists also have come under fire for exploiting the tragedy to promote abortion.
