In a wide ranging, two-and-a-half-hour interview with Joe Rogan, rapper and presidential candidate Kanye West affirmed his strong pro life views and the devastating impact of abortion on the black community.
“I’m Christian so I’m pro-life,” he told Rogan. “It tears me up inside that I was part of a culture that promotes this kind of thing,” he said.
Kanye quoted statistics that found the greatest advocates for the practice of abortion are men between the ages of 31 to 37. “That’s how old I was. I felt like I was too busy. My dad felt like he was too busy for me,” alluding to the fact that Kanye and his wife Kim Kardashian briefly considered abortion, but ultimately rejected it.
“Planned Parenthood was started by a eugenicist,” he noted, referring to Margaret Sanger, the founder of the organization. Planned Parenthood has disproportionately placed abortion clinics in African-American neighborhoods, which has resulted in the extermination of roughly half the black population in the U.S. since 1973.
“There are 1000 black children aborted a day. We are in genocide. More black children have died since February than people have died of Covid. Where are we turning a blind eye?”
An “abortion culture” has propagandized young people. “They had child soldiers in Africa that were doped up and psyched out to kill their parents. In our culture we’re doped up and psyched out and made to kill our children.”
Kanye advocates decoupling the conversation from Planned Parenthood and a woman’s choice. “I will propose a plan to change the connotation of orphanages and foster care, not just verbally, to create environments with expecting families, that there is a place to go,” he said.
