(CNSNews.com) – Rapper Kanye West accused Planned Parenthood – the nation’s largest abortion provider – of “black genocide” through abortion.
“There’s some harsh facts that deal with the black genocide that is abortion. It’s happening every day, and right now God has given me the information, and he ain’t gave me no other information other than this information, and we have this right now, so that means he wants me to say this now,” West said in a Sept. 1 interview with actor Nick Cannon on his podcast “Cannon’s Class.”
“In 50 years, there’s been 22 million — over 22,500,000 — black people aborted strategically and on purpose. Planned Parenthood was set up and placed in minority communities to kill black people,” he said.
West said Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger “was an avowed racist whose goal was to reduce the black population in America, and she succeeded.”
“Eighty percent of abortion clinics are in minority neighborhood. Over 22,500,000 black babies have been aborted in 50 years. Over 1,000 black babies are aborted everyday, so that means we are inside of it as we speak. We are inside of genocide as we speak,” the rapper said.
Host Nick Cannon asked what West would say to people who think he doesn’t have the right to speak about abortion because he’s not a woman or who say that Planned Parenthood does “amazing things and are in those communities” because of need.
“I have to go to the word. God says he knew you before you were in the womb,” West said.
“Yup, Jeremiah 1:5,” Cannon said.
“One other statistic. Abortion is the number one killer of black lives in the United States. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, abortion kills more black people than HIV, homicide, diabetes, accidents, cancer, and heart disease – watch this one – combined,” West said.
“Combined – 3,000 shootings in Chicago a year, 700 murders. You gotta put that with heart disease. You gotta put that with HIV. You gotta put that with diabetes. You gotta put that with just accidents, and you put that with cancer, and it doesn’t add up to specifically abortions,” he said.
