Kanye West is continuing his ongoing rant against abortion, and now claims that over 22.5 MILLION ‘Black Babies’ have been aborted in the last 50 years.
Kim Kardashian’s husband took to Twitter and posted the shocking comment regarding the number of abortions in the black community in the past five decades.
The rapper included an article in his tweets which detailed Planned Parenthood’s decision to remove the name of one of it’s founders, ‘Margaret Sanger,’ from their building due to her ‘ racist legacy.’
“Over 22,500,000 black babies have been aborted over the past 50 years,” Kanye tweeted.
As you can imagine, the message started a fire storm of debate on the subject, and many social media users were furious with the rapper for supporting a position which doesn’t give woman the right to choose.
“Yep and that’s 22.5 million times a woman exerted her reproductive freedom. Congrats ladies. Keep it up,” one person tweeted.
Another added, “I get that this is a personal issue for you but women should have the right to choose. It isn’t your say.”
As we reported, Kanye had an emotional breakdown during his first Presidential campaign speech, where he sobbed about the fact that him and Kim had considered aborting their first child.
During the speech, West also revealed his own father wanted his mother to end her pregnancy but his mother ‘saved’ his life.
Several reactions to Kanye’s controversial statements were directed at his references to his own life. “North was born in a very privileged household, many of those abortions were because of poverty and lack of resources. Let people do what they think is best, it’s their right,” on person tweeted in reaction.
Kanye tweeted earlier in the day about the same topic saying, “I cried at the thought of aborting my first born and everyone was so concerned about me,” he wrote.
He added, “I’m concerned for the world that feels you shouldn’t cry about this subject.”
As you know, the Kardashian family says Kanye is in the midst of a bipolar episode, and are asking for everyones understanding while they attempt to get him help. But, the rapper addressed his mental health on Friday, saying, “I am quite alright.”
As for planned parenthood, it appears Kanye is attempting to amplify the issue of its co-founder’s racist actions in the form of eugenics.
“The removal of Margaret Sanger’s name from our building is both a necessary and overdue step to reckon with our legacy and acknowledge Planned Parenthood’s contributions to historical reproductive harm within communities of color,” the chair of Planned Parenthood of New York, said in a recent statement.

The continued, “Margaret Sanger’s concerns and advocacy for reproductive health have been clearly documented, but so too has her racist legacy.”
Kanye is receiving some support for his statements, including one tweet which read, “Thank you for speaking out. I know you are receiving a lot of attacks, but the mass killing of millions of children in the womb is our nation’s greatest tragedy.”
As we reported, Kim Kardashian flew to the couple’s Wyoming ranch to speak with Kanye, but returned home a short time later. It appears the couple could be headed for a divorce, and Kanye shows no slowing down with his ongoing attempt to become the President Of The United States.
