Kourtney Kardashian reveals she thought about abortion
After discovering that she was with child approximately four months ago, Kourtney Kardashian spent time agonizing over whether she wanted to be a mother. The star of Kourtney & Khloe Take Miami told People that she considered having an abortion.
“I definitely thought about it long and hard, about if I wanted to keep the baby or not, and I wasn’t thinking about adoption,” she revealed. “I do think every woman should have the right to do what they want, but I don’t think it’s talked through enough. I can’t even tell you how many people just say, ‘Oh, get an abortion.’ Like it’s not a big deal.”
Kourtney’s baby daddy, Scott Disick, helped to ease the anxiety by encouraging his on-again girlfriend to do whatever she felt was right, despite the fact that he wanted her to remain pregnant.
Ultimately, after speaking to her girlfriends, her physician, and consulting the Internet, Kardashian opted to keep her baby.
“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.” Kourtney added. “I’m 30 years old, I make my own money, I support myself, I can afford to have a baby. And I am with someone who I love, and have been with for a long time.” (People)
