Kanye West Says He’s Against Abortion, Vaccines
US rapper Kanye West has made headlines again. This time for anti-vaccine and anti-abortion stance.
In an interview with Forbes earlier this week, West said that he believed that Planned Parenthood groups, which provide reproductive healthcare and education, ‘have been placed inside cities by white supremacists to do the Devil’s work’.
Planned Parenthood recently gave a public reply to Kanye’s allegations, claiming, “Black women are free to make our own decisions about our bodies and pregnancies, and want and deserve to have access to the best medical care available.”
“Any insinuation that abortion is Black genocide is offensive and infantilizing. The real threat to Black communities’ safety, health, and lives [stem] from lack of access to quality, affordable health care, police violence, and the criminalisation of reproductive health care by anti-abortion opposition.”
Regarding the development of a Covid-19 vaccine, he said: “It’s so many of our children that are being vaccinated and paralysed … So when they say the way we’re going to fix Covid is with a vaccine, I’m extremely cautious. That’s the mark of the beast.
“They want to put chips inside of us, they want to do all kinds of things to make it where we can’t cross the gates of heaven.”
West added that Covid-19 was ‘all about God. We need to stop doing things that make God mad’.
He said he may have contracted the disease in February: “Chills, shaking in the bed, taking hot showers, looking at videos telling me what I’m supposed to do to get over it.”
