Kanye West has railed against emergency birth control and/or abortion, apparently not fully understanding whether or not they are the same thing.

In an interview with radio personality Big Boy, West alleged that the Democratics had everyone brainwashed in a campaign that focused on aborting children.
"We brainwashed out here, bro," West said.
"Come on, man. This is a free man talking. Democrats had us voting Democrat for food stamps for years, bro.
"What is you talking about?" he continued.
"Guns in the 80s, taking the fathers out the home, Plan B, lowering our votes, making us abort our children," West said.
Complex writer Trace William Cowen notes that 'confusing' the morning after pill with abortion is a tactic often employed by far-right voices.
Just to clarify, The Emergency Contraceptive Pill (ECP) contains medication which aims to prevent pregnancy after unprotected sex. Abortion is a medical procedure to end a pregnancy.
In an effort to drive home his anti-pro-choice rhetoric, the self-declared born again Christian quoted from the ten commandments.
"Thou shalt not kill."
The controversial comments have garnered praise from pro-life advocates and prompted fury from others.
"Women have fought SO hard for equality and now this fool wants to tell women “we” are killing children? Not on my watch," one Twitter user wrote.
"I hope Kanye’s album flops. Only men can get away w/ saying wildly inappropriate things & still get called a genius while being unintelligent AF," another Tweet read.
"He thinks Plan B is equivalent to an abortion. That’s not genius. It’s a lie. Y’all will find any excuse to defend problematic men."
Meanwhile, Donald Trump Jr. has taken the opportunity to praise West's new album, titled Jesus Is King, which he called "the epitome of fearless creativity".
"Leftists always try to silence those who are speaking truth. They’re waging a war on our family and culture," he added.
In a recent interview with Beats 1, West said his previous support for President Trump had been "God's practical joke to all liberals".
