Kanye West advocated for the lives of unborn babies again on Friday after he broke down in tears earlier this month when he shared how both he and his oldest daughter were almost aborted.
The celebrity rapper and husband of Kim Kardashian has been talking about abortion often lately. West recently converted to Christianity, and, earlier this month, launched a presidential campaign.
On Friday, he wrote a series of posts on Twitter mourning how the abortion industry targets unborn black babies and mothers for abortions.
“Over 22,500,000 black babies have been aborted over the past 50 years,” West wrote.
It is true. Since abortion became legal nation-wide in 1973, pro-life leaders estimate that more than 20 million unborn black babies have been aborted in America.
While abortions hurt families of every race and color, they disproportionately harm African Americans. Health data indicates black Americans have a disproportionately high number of abortions compared to other racial groups. In New York City, city health data shows that more African American babies are aborted in the city than are born each year.

West also shared a New York Post article Friday about Planned Parenthood distancing itself from its racist eugenicist founder Margaret Sanger. Several weeks ago, West blasted the abortion chain as a “white supremacists’” organization.
Its founder, Sanger, believed some people were “human weeds,” “reckless breeders” and “morons” who never should have been born. She also spoke to a KKK gathering in 1926. Today, Planned Parenthood is the largest abortion provider in America, aborting more than 345,000 unborn babies each year.
For West, the abortion issue is personal. During a campaign rally in South Carolina earlier this month, he gave an emotional speech about how his mother almost aborted him and, later, how he and his wife almost aborted their first daughter.
The emotional speech apparently upset his wife, who supports Planned Parenthood, and West said he did apologize to her for sharing the personal information without her permission.
However, on Friday, West reiterated his sorrow about the fact that he even considered ending his daughter’s life.
“I cried at the thought of aborting my first born and everyone was so concerned about me …” he wrote on Twitter. “I’m concerned for the world that feels you shouldn’t cry about this subject.”
Some of West’s comments have been bizarre. But many people identified with his emotional, unscripted speech about his daughter’s life and their choice not to abort her.
“My mom saved my life. My dad wanted to abort me,” West said earlier this month. “My mom saved my life. There would have been no Kanye West because my dad was too busy.”
Then, he started crying.
“I almost killed my daughter!” he screamed. “I almost killed my daughter!”
“[Kim] called me screaming and crying … she said, ‘I’m pregnant’ … She said she was pregnant and for one month, and two months, and three months we talked about her not having this child. She had the pills in her hand,” West continued. “The screen went black and white and God said, ‘If you f— with my vision, I’m gonna f— with yours.’ And I called my wife, and she said, ‘We’re gonna have this baby.’ I said, ‘We’re gonna have this child.’”
Later in the speech, he said he does not think abortions should be illegal, but society should provide more support to help mothers choose life for their unborn babies.
