Last month, News spread that Kourtney Kardashian – the American socialite best known for her family’s reality television shows “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” and “Kourtney and Khloe take Miami” – was pregnant.
And according to People magazine, she did her research before making a decision that would affect her and the life of her unborn child.
“I was sitting on the bed hysterically crying, reading these stories of people who felt so guilty from having an abortion,” she told People. “I was reading these things of how many people are traumatized by it afterwards.”
Dr. Alveda King, president of the National Black Pro-Life Union says, “Thank you Kourtney Kardashian, for saying what we’ve been saying all along. We don’t have to kill our children to have better lives.”
“Kourtney’s singing our song,” she added. “She found messages from post-abortive women like myself on the Internet and realized that abortion can cause a lot of pain and grief.”
King is also a member of the Silent No More Awareness Campaign, a group which posts the largest collection of post-abortion testimonies on the Internet “precisely for the purpose of exposing the truth about abortion,” she says.
Lorey Carter, director of Underserved Outreach for the CareNet said, “Kudos to Kourtney! She will experience first-hand that an unplanned pregnancy does not mean an unwanted child. Her doctor advised her well saying she would not regret having her baby.”
Carter added, “Motherhood does not deny a woman her full potential but helps her to embrace it. Many women became much more responsible and focused because they have a child depending on them.”
Kourtney Kardashian recently told People Magazine why she is keeping her baby.
“For me, all the reasons why I wouldn’t keep the baby were so selfish,” she said. “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.”
