Kourtney Kardashian was faced with a â€œPapa Donâ€™t Preachâ€ moment when she found out she was pregnant, and in the end she made up her mind to keep her baby.
However, she explains in a lengthy interview with People that she seriously considered abortion and in the end, decided that wasnâ€™t the right choice for her. Normally the Kardashians arenâ€™t people we glean life lessons from, but we admire Kourtneyâ€™s honesty and the fact that sheâ€™s delving into territory thatâ€™s still taboo to talk about in the mainstream, especially by Hollywood celebrities.
Kardashian said that once she found out she was pregnant. She, â€œdefinitely thought about it long and hard, about if I wanted to keep the baby or not, and I wasnâ€™t thinking about adoption. I do think every woman should have the right to do what they want, but I donâ€™t think itâ€™s talked through enough. I canâ€™t even tell you how many people just say, â€˜Oh, get an abortion.â€™ Like itâ€™s not a big deal.â€
Ultimately, she realized that she had no reason not to keep the baby. â€œFor me, all the reasons why I wouldnâ€™t keep the baby were so selfish: It wasnâ€™t like I was raped, itâ€™s not like Iâ€™m 16. Iâ€™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.â€
Kourtney has another reason to celebrate these days – her show â€œKourtney & Khloe Take Miamiâ€ premiered to record ratings on the E! network this week.
