‘Kanye West launched his presidential bid with an unconventional rally that saw him crying on stage about abortion.
The rapper, who recently converted to Christianity, sobbed uncontrollably at one point when discussing the hot button issue.
He alleged that he had contemplated aborting his oldest child, daughter North, but his wife, reality TV star Kim Kardashian-West, was determined to go through with the pregnancy. They had North in 2013 and have had three more children together.
At the rally in North Charleston, South Carolina, West claimed his own dad had wanted to abort him but his mum refused.
‘My mum saved my life,’ he shouted from the stage while clad in a bulletproof vest with ‘2020’ shaved into the back of his head.
‘My dad wanted to abort me. My mum saved my life. There wouldn’t have been no Kanye West, because my dad was too busy,’ he said.
‘My stance is not to make abortion illegal at all. It should always be legal. But there should be an option of maximum increase available,’ he said…
West often spoke about his Christian faith during his speech, telling the crowd that everyone was ‘equal in God’s eyes’.
‘Sometimes people are controlled by demons, sometimes people are controlled by the environment that we are in but we are all God’s people, there [are] no bad people. There are lost people, but we are all God’s people,’ he said.’
