Kanye West posted and removed a pro-life tweet calling the six-monthly fetuses “souls” who “deserve to live.”
The controversial rapper’s pro-life attitude comes when he and Planned Parenthood have a fierce back-and-forth fight after claiming it was an organization run by ‘white supremacists to do the work of the devil.’
Sharing a screenshot of a Google search, 43-year-old Kanye asked, “What does a six-month-old fetus look like?”

Nia Martin-Robinson, who is director of Black Leadership and Engagement at Planned Parenthood, rebuked the star, calling his claims “offensive” and “infantilization” in a statement by DailyMail.com.
“Black women are free to make our own decisions about our bodies and pregnancies, and they want and deserve access to the best medical care available. Any insinuation that abortion is black genocide is offensive and infantilizing, ”Nia’s statement began.
“The real threat to the safety, health and life of black communities stems from a lack of access to quality, affordable health care, police brutality and the criminalization of reproductive health through opposition to abortion.”
Nia added, “At Planned Parenthood, we trust and stand behind black women who are in charge and continue to lead when it comes to the health, rights and physical autonomy of those in their communities.”

Planned Parenthood also pointed out that it’s not the first time Kanye has made headlines about “parroting factually inaccurate, right-wing talking points about reproductive health care,” as he made the “false equivalence” between Plan B and abortion last year.
Meanwhile, in 2017, Kanye’s wife Kim Kardashian West met Sue Dunlap, the president and chief executive of Planned Parenthood Los Angeles on an episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians, so that she could form an opinion about the organization and its services.
Planned Parenthood’s perception is that it is an abortion clinic; that’s not how it is, “said Kim, 39, enthusiastically in the episode, praising the group, while her sister Khloe said she was up for the choice.
Kim added, “Hear that first hand [women’s stories] really made it for me. She later posted about the experience on Instagram and said she was with Planned Parenthood.
Advocate: In 2017, Kim and her sisters Khloe and Kourtney Planned Parenthood visited Los Angeles, and later approved the organization saying, “ I’m standing with #PP. ”
“My sisters and I recently visited Planned Parenthood and learned that the United States House of Representatives has enacted a bill that will strip health care coverage of millions and increase healthcare costs, including Planned Parenthood patients,” she wrote.
Add: ‘They are such a great place that offers so much to so much! #istandwithpp. ‘
Kanye has also had a huge backlash for revealing his anti-vaccination stance, telling Forbes, “It’s so many of our kids getting vaccinated and paralyzed … So when they say we’re going to fix COVID with a vaccine, I am extremely careful. ‘
The rapper also claimed that in February this year he had COVID-19 and took hot showers and watched instructional videos to pamper himself. He then referred to every possible COVID vaccine as a “mark of the beast.”
