Reality TV Star Kourtney Kardashian Chooses Life

LIFESITENEWS

“I can’t even tell you how many people just say, ‘Oh, get an abortion.’ Like it’s not a big deal,” says the star.

Kourtney Kardashian, the famous socialite and model, told People magazine in a recent interview that she considered having her unborn child aborted but changed her mind after reading about the traumatizing effects of abortion online.

“I looked online, and I was sitting on the bed hysterically crying, reading these stories of people who felt so guilty from having an abortion,” Kourtney told David Caplan of People.

Kardashian, who is most famous for her role in the reality TV show Keeping Up with the Kardashians on E!, announced last week that she was pregnant.

Though Kardashian openly supports abortion as a legitimate choice in her interview, she says that she wrestled with the decision, something she thinks not many people do.

“I do think every woman should have the right to do what they want, but I don’t think it’s talked through enough.”

However, after researching the emotionally and physically devastating effects of abortion on women, she said, “I was just sitting there crying, thinking, ‘I can’t do that.’ “

“I felt in my body, this is meant to be. God does things for a reason, and I just felt like it was the right thing that was happening in my life.”

Further, Kardashian says she recognized that her motives for aborting the baby would have been selfishly driven. Kardashian, who with her sisters Khloe and Kim owns the clothing boutique DASH, said, “For me, all the reasons why I wouldn’t keep the baby were so selfish: It wasn’t like I was raped, it’s not like I’m 16. I’m 30 years old, I make my own money, I support myself, I can afford to have a baby.”

Disturbingly, though, Kardashian said a number of people advised her to get an abortion without much thought to the gravity of the matter.

“I can’t even tell you how many people just say, ‘Oh, get an abortion.’ Like it’s not a big deal.”

Luckily she was advised by a friend to see a doctor, and the doctor encouraged her to research abortion online. He also told her that she would never regret having the child, but she might very well regret aborting it.
