Rapper Kanye West praises abortion on CD likening himself to Jesus
LOS ANGELES, June 17, 2013 (LifeSiteNews.com) – Rapper Kanye West's new single, which glorifies aborting the babies men conceive with their mistresses, leaked out to the public just as Kim Kardashian was about to give birth to his baby girl.
The song, “Blood on the Leaves,” appears on his new album "Yeezus." The title is a blasphemous play on his nickname "Ye," the last two letters of his first name.
The third verse begins by talking about “second-string b----es trying to get a baby”:
Then she said she impregnated; that's the night your heart died
Then you gotta go and tell your girl and report that
Main reason 'cause your pastor said you can’t abort that
The song goes on to talk about the costs of fatherhood, such as not snorting cocaine, buying a new Mercedes, or abandoning one's wife:
Now your driver say that new Benz you can't afford that
All that cocaine on the table you can't snort that
That going to that owing money that the court got
On and on that alimony, uh, yeah-yeah, she got you, Homie
'Til death but do your part – unholy matrimony
“The lyrics clearly describe a man who knocks a mistress and pressures her toward aborting her child, so that his wife will never find out,” writes Perez Hilton, a homosexual Hollywood gossip columnist.
The song samples the classic Billie Holiday tune “Strange Fruit,” a song exposing the outbreak of racially motivated lynching in the South. She sang with an intention to stop the murder of black people.
Kanye became a father with Kim Kardashian, who gave birth to a baby girl on Saturday morning via c-section. The child was approximately one month premature.

Kardashian was raised by an Armenian Apostolic Orthodox father and a Catholic mother, both churches that fervently oppose abortion. Although Kim Kardashian clings to her Armenian heritage, she currently attends Life Change Community Church.
"Kimye" has been the subject of media attention for months, including a rare segment on Conan O'Brien's TBS show, Conan, which depicted their unborn child backing away from a Planned Parenthood office in fear.
Kim's sister, Kourtney, said stories of post-abortion trauma convinced her to keep her baby in 2009.
West has sallied into controversial territory before. In February 2011, he wrote a Twitter message that again addressed mistresses and abortion: "An abortion can cost a ballin' nigga up to 50gs maybe a 100. Gold diggin' bi---es be getting pregnant on purpose. #STRAPUP my niggas!"
When asked if he was speaking from personal experience, Mr. West replied, "It ain't happen to me but I know people."
His tweet, since removed, angered British singer Lily Allen, who had recently suffered her second late miscarriage. "Never has a tweet put me in such a bad mood,” she wrote. “This is wrong on so many levels."
