Kanye West’s powerful statement on being pro-life



Cerith Gardiner - published on 10/08/22

With over 31 million followers, maybe the designer and musician will inspire younger generations.

Rapper, songwriter, record producer, and designer Kanye West has been in the news a lot recently for taking some stances that have divided the internet. His partnership with Adidas is under review since he was seen sporting his “White Lives Matter” t-shirt (with an illustration of Pope St. John Paul II on the front) that many have argued does not help the fight for racial equality.

While it is public knowledge that West has some significant mental health issues, and perhaps some of his musings and actions at times may be as a result of a mood swing, there are some things that he has shared that are truly noteworthy.

Notably, the father-of-four affirmed in an interview on Tucker Carlson Tonight that he is pro-life. He explains that the lanyard that he designed has a photo of a baby’s ultrasound. He wants to share the message that he cares “about the fact that there’s more Black babies being aborted than born in New York City at this point.”

The talented designer also shared how he doesn’t care what others think of him, stating:

I perform for an audience of one, and that’s God.”

While it’s always heartening to see celebrities lend their weight to the pro-life cause, West can count over 31 million followers on his Twitter account alone. He’s internationally admired for his musical and design talents, and his thoughts, no matter how radical, become a topic of discussion among the generations, young and old.

Now that he has shared his feelings concerning abortion, maybe he’ll be able to influence some of his fans, and further the pro-life cause.

If you skip to 1 minute 58 you’ll here West discuss his beliefs about abortion.
