Nick Cannon Slams Abortion: A ‘Real Genocide’ Against Black Community

Back in 2016, rapper Nick Cannon appeared on a New York City radio show called “The Breakfast Club,” hosted by Charlemagne Tha God. During that appearance, they spoke about the presidential election between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton.

Cannon did not choose sides in the matter, however, he refused that Clinton was the better choice out of the two. His reasoning? Because she sided with Planned Parenthood, which he highly criticized, stating that they are attempting to get rid of the black community.

“Hillary was — think about all of the things they did with Planned Parenthood and all of that type of stuff.” Cannon said, “That type of stuff is to take our community — and forget gentrification — it’s real genocide, and it’s been like that for years. This system is not built for us.”

While this did take place a few years ago, I think it is still an important issue that needs to be addressed. Cannon is right. The first abortion clinic was opened by Margaret Sanger, who was a believer in eugenics and focused on minority communities. She believed that humanity could be improved by selective breeding. Sounds similar to any history lessons you know? Hitler believed the same.

Cannon released a song back in 2005 called, “Can I Live?” It portrays the story of his mother, who went through with a teenage pregnancy but did consider abortion in the process. While Cannon claims he did not write the song to make a pro-life argument, it still makes a powerful statement.

Cannon said, “I didn’t make the song to make a political statement. I’m just thanking my mom for being strong.” he added, “I’m not pro-life or pro-choice. I’m pro-Nick. I’m just happy to be here.”
