G.O.O.D Music boss Kanye West might have let his Twitter fingers get the best of him. The hip-hop star went to the social media giant this week to share an opinion about abortion but ultimately had the post fade to black.
Kanye x Abortion
Yeezy went to his Twitter page this week with a very public stance about how he feels about abortion. West shared – then deleted – a religious tweet about the pregnancy operation preventing life.

“These souls deserve to live” -Kanye West’s Twitter
In a new Forbes interview, Kanye shares his public opinion about abortion. West credited his religion for making him go against a woman’s right to choose.
“I am pro-life because I’m following the word of the Bible.” (Forbes)
Wait, There’s More
This week, Planned Parenthood’s Director of Black Leadership and Engagement Nia Martin-Robinson spoke out against West. She took personal offense with West not supporting a woman’s right to choose.
“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 infantilising. The real threat to Black communities’ safety, health, and lives stems from lack of access to quality, affordable health care, police violence and the criminalisation of reproductive health care by anti-abortion opposition.” (TMZ)
Before You Go
Over the past few days, Kanye has flooded his social media pages with family moments. Notably, West has posted up pics of his children on Twitter.
