Kanye West slammed abortion and pro-abortion Democratic politicians last week in an interview promoting his first Christian album, “Jesus is King.”
West is the husband of Kim Kardashian and a well-known abortion supporter and often controversial celebrity who visited President Donald Trump in the White House last fall. He recently said he became a Christian, and his latest comments have some speculating that he may have become pro-life, too.
“Democrats had us voting Democrat for food stamps for years, bro,” the rap star told radio host Big Boy last week, according to Live Action. “What you talking about? Guns in the ’80s, taking the fathers out of the home, Plan B, lowering our votes, making us abort our children…. I can’t tell y’all how to feel. But what I can tell you honestly is how I feel.”
For years, black pro-life advocates like Dr. Alveda King have been calling out racial targeting by the abortion industry and the Democrat leaders who support it. Research by Protecting Black Life found that 79 percent of Planned Parenthood surgical abortion facilities are located within walking distance of African American and/or Hispanic/Latino communities. Statistics also indicate that black women have a disproportionately high number of abortions compared to other racial groups.
It appears West is beginning to realize the truth.
During the interview, he also criticized people for expecting him to vote Democrat because he is black, The Daily Wire reports.
“So you mean to tell me I make every decision based off my color?” he continued. “The most racist thing a person could tell me is that I’m supposed to choose something based on my race.”
Kanye West went on to lament how Democrats have essentially brainwashed black Americans into voting for them with promises of food stamps and kicking fathers out of the home.
“We’re brainwashed out here, bro. Come on, man. This is a free man talking,” said West. “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.”

These remarks are a huge change for West, who previously appeared supportive of abortion. In 2013, his song “Blood on the Leaves” promoted abortion as a way to avoid the responsibility of fatherhood and the consequences of an extra-marital affair. In 2011 on Twitter, he also hinted not so subtly that there are women who intentionally get pregnant so they can extort money from their husband or boyfriend to pay for an abortion and keep quiet about it.
West now insists that he is a Christian, and his life is changed.
“Now that I’m in service to Christ, my job is to spread the gospel, to let people know what Jesus has done for me,” he said.
He told Billboard magazine that he asked people working on his new album to live by Christian principles, too, including abstinence until marriage.
“There were times where I was asking people not to have premarital sex while they were working on the album,” West said. “When people pray together and fast together, the power is increased.”
