Nick Cannon usually keeps things pretty light and breezy, and that is just one reason why he has shocked fans by making such strong statements against Planned Parenthood and a woman’s right to control her own reproductive rights. The show host, performer, and now former husband of Mariah Carey is likening Planned Parenthood to eugenics and genocide, and says that black women in particular have been pawns.
Nick Cannon, who just finalized his divorce against Mariah Carey, has just announced that he is expecting a child with ex-girlfriend Brittany Bell, says the Inquisitr. Cannon received a settlement from Carey, and now Carey is trying to get a settlement out of her former fiance James Packer for a broken engagement. Carey also claims she is keeping the $10 million ring that Packer gave her. Prior to making a statement about Planned Parenthood, Nick Cannon had not shown much of an interest in politics.

But Slate says Nick Cannon, a self described “great thinker,” calls Planned Parenthood a cause of genocide on the black community. By providing reproductive health care services, Planned Parenthood is the agent of genocide on the black community. When asked to further describe what he meant, he accused the organization of propagating “modern-day eugenics” and “population control.”

But Nick Cannon says it is not just Planned Parenthood hurting the black community. On Twitter, Cannon called out some other entities that are to blame.
“Same issue I have with Planned Parenthood I have with corps like McDonalds, Hennessy, Privatized Prisons, public education etc.”
Cannon’s latest theories perhaps goes back to Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger’s belief in eugenics theories as evidence that the organization wanting to control the breeding of poor people. Perhaps Nick Cannon has been following the theories of former presidential candidate Ben Carson, who falsely claims that Planned Parenthood puts its clinics in predominantly poor black neighborhoods to pressure women into terminating their pregnancies.
Anti-abortion activists have likened abortion to slavery.

The Huffington Post said that Nick Cannon likened choosing between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump to choosing what gun you’d prefer to get shot with. Cannon said neither candidate had much to offer oppressed communities.
“Hillary was [sneaking]… Think about all the stuff they did with Planned Parenthood and all that type of stuff. That type of stuff is to take our community and forget gentrification, it’s real genocide, and it’s been like that for years. This system is not built for us. This is not our land. I appreciate it. I love it, wouldn’t want to live nowhere else, but this wasn’t designed for our people.”
Cannon then said again, that Planned Parenthood was modern day eugenics.
“We are in the midst of Spiritual Warfare and only a few are in tuned with the battle. But we will fight for those who are sleep…”
Cannon then posted some Malcolm X quotes on Instagram.
After that, TMZ caught up with Nick Cannon at LAX where Cannon claimed that Planned Parenthood was all about population control. He said that Planned Parenthood is simply serving up organized genocide.
Nick Cannon started sharing his thoughts on Planned Parenthood and abortion when he was interviewed on The Breakfast Club last week. He says he does not trust the organization, as it has a “hidden agenda.”
Do you agree with Nick Cannon, or do you believe his theories on Planned Parenthood sound a bit paranoid?
