‘My mum saved my life. My Dad wanted to abort me… My mum saved my life, there would have been no Kanye West because my dad was too busy.’

‘She was crying… and for one month and two months and three months, we talked about her not having this child. She had the pills in her hand.’ He continued.

‘I’m in the apartment where my wife was actually robbed, and I have my laptop up and I have all of my creative ideas, I’ve got my shoes, I’ve got my next song cover… and the screen went black and white. And God said, “If you f**k with my vision I’m gonna f**k with yours”.

‘And I called my wife and she said, “We’re gonna have this baby”, and I said “We’re gonna have this child.’

Kanye West made it clear during the rally that he is anti-abortion and that every mother should be paid $1 million (£792,000) in a bid to prevent abortion.
