Kanye West on Families & Children



Asks staff to refrain from fornicating outside of marriage

West has made abortion a central component of his campaign, but told the paper he does not want to ban the practice, just prevent it. "You can't do that. I don't want to ban or stop or point fingers at anything." Instead he pledged "stipends for families that need support, creating orphanages that are really high-level desirable for people to go to, and the redesign of communities and cities in general to be supporting of families," West told the paper when speaking by phone.

The rapper is so committed to reducing abortion rates that he asked his campaign staff to refrain from "fornicating" outside of marriage, people aiding his candidacy told the paper.

The rapper has a generally broad campaign platform, with more goals than specific policy initiatives. Police reform, reducing household and student loan debt and bringing prayer back into school are some of his initiatives.

The culture of humanity needs to be family

West, who is vehemently pro-life, stressed the importance of family. "Family is just the key to the world, period. From our immediate family to our friends and family, our co-workers and family, our city and family, our state and family, our country and family, our world," the rap superstar said.

"The culture of humanity needs to be family," West continued, adding, "The design of our cities, the design of our schools, there's a lot of things designed for us to not promote family, they're designed to create separation." Abortion has become a central component of West's campaign, and the artist continued to reference it throughout the interview.

Birthday Lake: mothers safely experience pregnancy & birth

The next day he was asked: "with any candidate for any office, I ask, "what is it you would actually do?" He sent a handwritten outline of his plan to build an idyllic "eco-village" called Birthday Lake, which he later tweeted. Mothers could "safely experience pregnancy & birth" there, and children could be cared for afterward. He would not say if he envisioned the government building such places.
