Popular American rapper, Kanye West has reportedly asked his campaign staff working on his long-shot presidential bid, to abstain from sex outside marriage.
According to New York Times, the 43-year-old independent presidential candidate – who is married to reality TV star, Kim Kardashian West – asked that campaign aides “refrain from ‘fornicating’ outside of marriage.”
“In addition to his stance on extramarital sex, the rapper wants to bring back prayer in schools and provide religious groups with greater government support,” the Times reported.
KanyiDaily recalled in July, Kanye West cried during his presidential rally on the issue of abortion, revealing that his wife, Kim Kardashian, considered not having their first child, North West.
The rapper said that his own father had wanted his mother to abort him, and that he realized he had “almost killed” his daughter.
“In the Bible it says thou shalt not kill,” he said. “I remember that my girlfriend called me screaming and crying. At that time I was a rapper, I was out there, I had different girlfriends. Hey I don’t give a f***. So my girlfriend called me and I just thought to myself, please don’t tell me.
“And she said I’m pregnant. For one month and two months and three months, we talked about her not having this child. She had the pills in her hand. If you take it, the baby’s gone.
“I was sitting up in Paris, and I had my leather pants on. I’m in the apartment where my wife was actually robbed, and I got all my creative ideas … and the screen went black and white, and God said if you f*** with my vision, I’m going to f*** with yours.
Eventually Kanye West reached his point, saying abortion should “always be legal”, but there “should be an option of maximum support”.
His idea, which he called a “maximum support”, was to give every woman the option of taking a large payment from the federal government to help her raise her child.
He mentioned the policy a couple of times – the first time, the proposed payment was US$50,000, and after that it became US$1million.
“Everybody that has a baby gets a million dollars, or something like that,” he said.
Aftet the public outbursts two months ago, Kanye West paid a visit to a hospital after publicly apologising to his wife, Kim Kardashian, for ‘going public’ with their ‘private matter.’
