Kanye West speaks out against abortion: “Thou shalt not kill”

Reading Time: 3 minutes

Fresh off the release of his latest album, “Jesus Is King,” rapper Kanye West spoke out against abortion in an interview.  West describes himself as a Christian and his album is heavily influenced by Gospel music.  Many commentators are unsure of what to think of West’s apparent conversion to Christianity, but West minced no words when speaking out against abortion.

When asked about his controversial support for Pro-Life President Donald Trump, West responded by pointing out the history of racism in the anti-Life Democrat Party.  West said, “We brainwashed out here, bro.”

He continued, “Come on, man. This is a free man talking.  Democrats had us voting Democrat for food stamps for years, bro.  What is you talking about? Guns in the 80s, taking the fathers out the home, Plan B, lowering our votes, making us abort our children.  Thou shalt not kill.”

Anti-Life pundits are calling West’s comments “wildly inaccurate” and “outlandish.”  Certainly, West does not make a robust argument for his assertions, but other people have.  For example, rapper and actor Nick Cannon explained the eugenic origins of America’s largest abortion business.  Cannon said in a 2017 interviewer that Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger “wanted to exterminate the negro race and that was going to use her organization that she founded to do so.”

Cannon’s comments are by no means unwarranted.  Other cultural commentators have compiled evidence that Sanger’s eugenics led to a targeting of African American populations.  Sadly, Sanger’s eugenic plot to destroy African American communities has come to fruition in many ways.  The abortion rate among Black Americans is much higher than other groups.  In fact, a black baby in New York City is more likely to be aborted than to be born.

While West refers only to the Democrat Party and not Planned Parenthood, the radical anti-Life agenda of the Democrats and America’s abortion corporation has converged in recent years.  The Democrat Party now refuses to support any candidate who does not fully endorse a radical anti-Life policy at every level of government.  In turn, Planned Parenthood’s political arm distributes millions of dollars to promote anti-Life candidates in national, state, and local elections.

Other anti-Life pundits have attacked West for seeming to conflate Plan B with abortion.  Anti-Life writers claim that Plan B solely prevents pregnancy and is not abortifacient; however, Plan B is deceptively marketed as emergency contraception rather than an abortion pill.  There is no question that Plan B can terminate a pregnancy, thus ending the Life of a preborn child. 

West’s condemnation of abortion and pointing out the negative effects the abortion industry has had on the Black community in America are a marked departure from his previous statements.  While West had not publicly taken a position on abortion, he sent a controversial tweet on the subject in 2011 leading many to believe he was anti-Life.  Through his recent alleged conversion and continuing faith journey, perhaps West has come to recognize the truth of the Pro-Life position and had a sincere change of heart. Becoming Pro-Life in the entertainment industry, which is notoriously anti-Life, certainly does not seem like a calculated move to advance West’s career.

Regardless of how West’s Pro-Life comments affect his business prospects, he has one of the largest audiences of any entertainer in our time.  Whether or not West’s comments are comprehensive and fully articulate the Pro-Life position, he is in a position to encourage millions of people to stop and consider the issue.  Like the comedian Dave Chappelle who recently outraged anti-Lifers with his shocking jokes about abortion, West’s comments may spur people to consider the anti-Life status quo in the entertainment industry and start asking the hard questions about how our society continues to deny basic human rights to the preborn.

  1. “Thou shalt not kill”

    One of a number of misleading translations in the KJV. From the original Hebrew the best translation is “Thou shalt not murder”. Not all killing is murder. The killing of non-human creatures for food is not murder. Killing in self defense is often not murder. A lawful execution resulting from fair due process is not murder. Killing a defenseless unborn human being IS murder! The Preamble of our Constitution declares the value of our Posterity. How is an unborn child not a member of our Posterity for which we should be ensuring “the Blessings of Liberty”? Doesn’t that Liberty include the freedom to be born?

    The Preamble also establishes the principle of ensuring “the Blessings of Liberty” upon our individual selves. None of us should have to endure the imposing of any kind of slavery upon us by anyone else. Our bodies and our minds should be free to live abundantly. Each one of us should be at Liberty enough to always be able to do all the things that we OUGHT to be doing. Blindly giving in to our passions and impulses only brings us into bondage to material substances and to tyrants.

  2. Margaret Sanger was a racist “B” who hated all humans of color. How the world have so many embraced this “Hitler” like philosophy is beyond logic and comprehension. God help us please!

  3. ABORTION:

    Didache 2:1-7 (Apocryphal New Testament)
    “..thou shalt not procure abortion, nor commit infanticide..”


    Did you know…

    The Apostles of Jesus wrote a rule book for the true Church called The Didache:
