The online world is buzzing about the Houston rapper, who’s out and about promoting his financial self-help book, “How to Survive in a Recession.”
He reportedly calls a chapter in his book “Abortion." He goes so far as to say abortion is necessary if the parents aren’t a couple.
Here’s a quote being pulled from the rapper as he was hawking his book on Houston hip-hop station: The Box
“I think abortion is necessary on some occasions. People be against it, but people don’t deal with the real life situations some people deal with. I don’t think it’s right, I don’t think it’s good to have a baby and not be with the father.”
The rapper reportedly bases his stance on the fact that he was raised by a single mom, a woman who he says worked “ seven days a week, 12 hours a day.” He also says he has no idea who his father is.
Oh, and the single dad (yes, you read that right) reportedly equates abortion with birth control, if it’s done immediately after conception:
“Even though I got three baby mamas … it’s working out. But it ain’t right. I ain’t saying wait three or four months. If it’s immediate, it’s like birth control to me.”
Needless to say, his comments his drawing fire:
Somone on Vibe.com says:
While I agree that people should make wiser choices before sleeping with a partner or having a child, acting like abortion isn’t a serious, life-altering decision and is as easy as popping a birth control pill is almost as irresponsible as getting yourself mixed up with the wrong person in the first place.
AllHipHop.com calls the rapper’s comments an “epic fail.”
But there is some support: A commenter on vladtv.com says: Why you mad at this guy's opinion? In a way he kinda right. Everybody isn't fit to be parents and condoms aren't 100 percent.
