Rapper and entrepreneur Kanye West, who recently announced he is running for President of the United States later this year, has said that abortion clinics were placed in cities by white supremacists to “do the devils work”.
West, who has had a revival of his Christian faith in recent years told Forbes:
“I am pro-life because I follow the word of the Bible. Planned Parenthoods (America’s biggest abortion provider) have been placed inside cities by white supremacists to do the Devil’s work”.
Planned Parenthood’s Director of Black Leadership and Engagement, Nia Martin-Robinson, hit back at Kanye’s remarks in a statement she said:
“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.”
However, the organisation itself was founded by Margret Sanger as the American Birth Control League in 1921, which was renamed the Planned Parenthood Federation of America in 1942.
Sanger was a staunch believer in Charlies Darwin’s theories on the origins of the human species was a proponent of racial eugenics and it quoted as saying in a letter a letter to Dr. Clarence Gamble on December 19th, 1939
“We don’t want the word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population.”
After peaking at a Ku Klux Klan meeting in 1926 Sanger and extolling the Darwinian ideas on human development sanger wrote:
“that the aboriginal Australian, the lowest known species of the human family, just a step higher than the chimpanzee in brain development, has so little sexual control that police authority alone prevents him from obtaining sexual satisfaction on the streets.”
In the United States since the legalisation of abortion in 1973 it is estimated that close to 20 million black babies have been aborted, that is nearly six thousand times more black babies killed in abortions than the number of black people who died at the hands of the KKK.
