Kanye West on Abortion



Planned Parenthood founded for eugenics against blacks

Over the past 50 years, West said, more than 22.5 million black children were aborted "strategically and on purpose."

"Planned Parenthood was set up and placed in minority communities to kill black people," West asserted. West then discussed Margaret Sanger, a founder of Planned Parenthood, whom the organization disavowed over her connections to the eugenics movement.

The rapper read a damning account of Sanger, "an avowed racist whose goal was to reduce the black population in America and she succeeded. 80% of abortion clinics in America are in minority neighborhoods."

Planned Parenthood was co-founded by Sanger in 1916 as America's first birth control clinic. While she was beloved by feminists for her views on women's reproductive access, she also supported eugenics, the discredited movement promoting selective breeding that often targeted people of color and the disabled.

While noting that black babies were aborted every day, West argued that "we are inside of genocide as we speak."

Pay a million per kid to discourage abortion

At the event in South Carolina, West said that if he were elected president, he would fight to keep abortion legal but would strongly discourage it by offering people $1 million for every child they have.

He announced a 2020 presidential bid earlier this month, running under what he's called the "Birthday Party." According to USA Today, West told the audience at the rally: "The maximum increase would be everybody that has a baby gets a million dollars or something in that range.
