Kourtney and Khloe Take Miami star, Kourtney Kardashian recently revealed that she was pregnant by on and off boyfriend of 2 years, Scott Disick. Kourtney is now opening up her difficult decision on whether or not to keep the baby.
“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,” Kardashian, 30, tells PEOPLE exclusively. “I do think every woman should have the right to do what they want, but I don’t think it’s talked through enough. “
Even though Scott and Kourtney split in November after 2 years of dating, he has remained supportive. The duo reconciled after finding out about the pregnancy.
According to Kourtney, she was confused and concerned when she first found out about the pregnancy. She continues, “I called my best friend crying, and I was like, ‘I don’t know what to do.’ She said, ‘Call your doctor, and at least find out the risks and stuff.’ “
After reading stories of people who felt guilty after an abortion, Kourtney says she recalls crying hysterically. With further research, she started to realize that an abortion wasn’t an option for her. “I was just sitting there crying, thinking, ‘I can’t do that,’ ” she says. “And 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.”
Kourtney says she planned to abort the baby for selfish reasons. “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. And I am with someone who I love, and have been with for a long time.”
Kourtney of course has decided to keep her baby.
While I appreciate Kourtney’s honesty in this issue, it’s starting to seem like a bit TMI (Too Much Information). Not sure the public wants to know all the gory details of forgetting to take her birth control pills, and her agonizing decision on choosing not to abort.
