Kanye West Breaks Down While Talking Abortion: 'I Almost Killed My Daughter'


Rapper Kanye West, who has four children with wife Kim Kardashian, accounted his own experiences with abortion at a rally over the weekend, saying that he "almost killed [his] daughter" by asking his wife to get an abortion early on in her pregnancy with their first daughter, North.

“I was having the rapper’s lifestyle,” Kanye told the crowd. “I was sitting up in Paris, and I had my leather pants on … and I had my laptop up and I got all of my creative ideas...And the screen went black and white and God said, ‘If you f**k with my vision I’m going to f**k with yours.'"

“And I called my wife and she said, ‘We’re gonna have this baby.’ I said, ‘We’re gonna have this child,'" he went on.

“So even if my wife were to divorce me after this speech, she brought North into the world when I didn’t want to. She stood up and she protected that child,” he said.

“My Dad wanted to abort me. My mom saved my life. There would have been no Kanye West. Because my dad was too busy…” he trailed off before breaking down in tears.

“I almost killed my daughter,” he went on.

After a moment, the rapper continued, saying that while he doesn’t think abortion should be made illegal, more resources should be given to women so they can keep and raise their child instead of having to turn to abortion.

“It takes a village to raise a child,” he said. “Society has been set up for single moms to not have a village, to not have a child.”

Kanye has repeatedly spoken out against abortion, most recently telling Forbes in an interview that "Planned Parenthoods have been placed inside cities by white supremacists to do the Devil’s work."
