Rapper Kanye West blasted the nation’s largest abortion provider, Planned Parenthood, saying it was created by “white supremacists to do the devil’s work.”
The 43-year-old rapper, who announced Saturday that he’s running for president of the United States, in what some consider to be a publicity stunt, voiced his disdain for Planned Parenthood in an interview with Forbes magazine.
“Planned Parenthoods have been placed inside cities by white supremacists to do the devil’s work,” West told the magazine.
“I am pro-life because I’m following the word of the Bible,” he added.
Planned Parenthood said in response to West that his comments were “offensive and infantilizing.”
“The real threat to Black communities’ safety, health, and lives stems from lack of access to quality, affordable health care, police violence and the criminalization of reproductive health care by anti-abortion opposition,” Nia Martin-Robinson, director of Black Leadership and Engagement at Planned Parenthood’s national headquarters, said in a statement to TMZ on Wednesday.
The rapper’s public conversion to the Christian faith has occurred alongside gospel worship services he’s led around the country.
