Kanye West has shared a series of previously unseen photographs of his children after facing backlash over a now-deleted anti-abortion tweet.
On Wednesday, the rapper shared a screenshot of a Google search on Twitter, that asked: “What does a six month fetus look like?”
Alongside the image, West wrote: “These souls deserve to live”.
However, West quickly deleted the tweet after fans heavily criticised his anti-abortion stance. “No man should be able to control what a woman does with her body,” tweeted one person.
Another added: “Does he not understand that serious pregnancy complications can require inevitable late-term abortions?"
West deleted the tweet and then shared photographs of his four children with his wife, Kim Kardashian West.
“I am pro-life because I’m following the word of the Bible,” he told the publication.
West also criticised US abortion service Planned Parenthood, saying: “Planned Parenthoods have been placed inside cities by white supremacists to do the Devil’s work.”
His comments have been condemned by Planned Parenthood.
Nia Martin-Robinson, who is director of black leadership and engagement at the organisation, told the Daily Mail: “Black women are free to make our own decisions about our bodies and pregnancies, and want and deserve to have access to the best medical care available.
“Any insinuation that abortion is Black genocide is offensive and infantilizing.”
The singer's wife, Kim Kardashian West, has previously expressed her pro-choice views, having met with the president of Planned Parenthood in an episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians in 2017.
“The perception of Planned Parenthood is that it is an abortion clinic; that is nothing what it is like,” she said on the programme.
“Hearing that first hand [women’s stories] really made it real for me,” she added in a subsequent Instagram post announcing her support for the organisation.
In his Forbes interview West also indicated that he would be running an anti-vaccination campaign. He said that he’s suspicious of a coronavirus vaccine, terming vaccines “the mark of the beast.”
He added: "They want to put chips inside of us, they want to do all kinds of things, to make it where we can’t cross the gates of heaven.
"I'm sorry when I say they, the humans that have the Devil inside them."
