Kanye West sparked further controversy on Wednesday by tweeting and then deleting a pro-life message shortly after an interview expressing his aversion to planned parenthood.
The 43-year-old musician, who announced his plans for a presidential nomination in 2020 earlier this week, went back to Twitter to share a very life-friendly stance with a photo showing fetuses after six months of pregnancy.
According to TheBlast, West shared the images from a Google search with the phrase “What does a 6-month fetus look like?” Along with a tweet saying “These souls deserve to live”. The store reported that the tweet was quickly removed from West̵

The now-deleted tweet came on the same day that West spoke to Forbes in an interview, not only talking about his presidential election, his opinions on Donald Trump and Joe Biden, but also targeting and accusing planned parenthood, To be part of a larger conspiracy supported by white supremacists.
The store reported that he believes “planned parenthoods have been brought into the cities by white supremacists to do the devil’s job.”
West responded to his opinion no different than saying, “I am for life because I follow the word of the Bible.”
In a statement to TMZ on Wednesday, Nia Martin-Robinson – director of black leadership and engagement at Planned Parenthood’s national headquarters – said: “Black women can make and want and deserve access to our own choices about our bodies and pregnancies to have the best medical care available. “

“Any suggestion that abortion is black genocide is offensive and infantilizing,” continued Martin-Robinson. “The real threat to the safety, health and life of black communities arises from the lack of access to high quality, affordable health care, police violence and the criminalization of reproductive health care through anti-abortion opposition.”
Forbes spoke to West about his ranch near Cody, Wyo, in what the magazine called “four hours of interviews.” West, who says he was diagnosed with bipolar disorder, often referred to himself in the third person and claimed that he was “one of the most powerful people”, although it was recognized that there are “many extraterrestrial superpowers”.
In the same interview, he made it clear that his tweet over the weekend, in which he said he would run against Biden and Trump as president, was serious. West had previously expressed his support for the current president, which led to a meeting with Trump in the Oval Office in 2018. However, he told Forbes that his support for the 45th president had ended.
He said that if he won the presidency, he would model his White House on the fictional country in “Black Panther” and say, “Let’s get back to Wakanda.”
