Kanye West published another pro-life message on his Twitter page Thursday, this time thanking his parents for choosing life for him before he was born.

The celebrity rapper has been talking about abortion a lot this summer. It began after he launched his presidential campaign in July. During a campaign rally last month, he burst into tears when he shared how his parents had almost aborted him.

This week, he shared photos of his parents holding him as an infant and thanked them for giving him life.

“Thank you God and mum and dad for letting me live,” West wrote.

Some of West’s abortion comments have been bizarre. But many people identified with his emotional, unscripted speech about his parents’ decision to choose life for him.

“My mom saved my life. My dad wanted to abort me,” West said during a campaign rally in July. “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.

Several weeks ago, West also blasted the Planned Parenthood abortion chain as a “white supremacists’” organization. Then, earlier this month, 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.
