Kanye West has proclaimed his pro-life views in an interview with radio host Big Boy while promoting his new album, Jesus Is King on Friday.
West, the highest-paid rapper of 2019, declared that black Americans have been “brainwashed” into voting for the Democratic Party despite the fact the party promotes pro-abortion policies that are harmful to them.
West, who has sold 21 million albums and 100 million digital downloads worldwide, said: “We’re [black Americans] brainwashed out here, bro. Come on, man. This is a free man talking.
“Democrats had us voting for Democrats with food stamps for years. What are you talking about guns in the 80s, taking the fathers out the home, Plan B, lowering our votes, making us abort children. Thou shall not kill… I can’t tell y’all how to feel. But what I can tell you honestly, is how I feel.”
The comments represent a huge change for West who has previously appeared supportive of abortion. In 2013, his song ‘Blood on the Leaves’ he promoted abortion as a way to avoid the responsibility of fatherhood and the consequences of an extra-marital affair.
Speaking of his pro-life views West insisted he wasn’t worried about being “cancelled” by fans over his new Christian and pro-life beliefs.
He said, “I’ve been cancelled, I’ve been cancelled before they had cancel culture. I was cancelled before they had the term.”
Kanye isn’t alone in feeling like this. Black Americans are an increasingly significant part of the pro-life movement with prominent campaigners calling out the US largest abortion provider, Planned Parenthood, claiming that it targets Black American communities.
Planned Parenthood’s founder Margaret Sanger notoriously wrote, in 1939, “We do not want word to get out that we want to exterminate the Negro population and the minister is the man who can straighten out that idea if it ever occurs to any of their more rebellious members.”
Planned Parenthood has more recently been caught on video accepting donations for racist and eugenicist abortions.
Recent Centers for Disease Control (CDC) statistics revealed that in one US State African-Americans constitute represented 32.2 percent of the population but 62.4 percent of abortions. By contrast, white people represent 60.8 percent of the population but 24.7 percent of abortions. Even abortion activist groups, such as the Guttmacher Institute admit that black women are more than 5 times as likely as white women to have an abortion.
