Iconic rapper, entrepreneur, and self-identified presidential candidate Kanye West tweeted images of unborn children and declaring that “these souls deserve to live.”
The tweet, posted late last week, was quietly deleted, however, after West received major backlash from pro-abortion advocates.
West deleted the tweet about an hour after posting it.
The tweet was followed up with several photos of West’s children, which pro-abortion advocates were happy to respond to with anger over his pro-life sentiments.
ok we know your kids are cute but not everyone that gets pregnant wants to have one

No. He’s posting his kids to show that his babies are the reason why he took his stance on abortion .

Following his presidential run announcement, West gave an interview explaining several of his stances, including that he is pro-life.
“I am pro-life because I’m following the word of the Bible,” West declared, adding that “Planned Parenthoods have been placed inside cities by white supremacists to do the Devil’s work.”
“Democrats had us voting Democrat for food stamps for years, bro. What you talking about? Guns in the 80s, taking the fathers out of the home, Plan B, lowering our votes, making us abort our children…. I can’t tell y’all how to feel. But what I can tell you honestly is how I feel,” the rapper said in an interview with fellow rapper Big Boy last year.
West also notably triggered Tesla CEO Elon Musk with remarks suggesting that he opposes both abortion and vaccination.
“We may have more differences of opinion than I anticipated,” Musk said just days after assuring West of his “full support” in his candidacy. That tweet, however, also appears to have been deleted.
