Kourtney Kardashian almost had an abortion

August 19th, 2009 // 96 Comments

Because pregnancies are publicity manna from Heaven, Kourtney Kardashian reveals to People she contemplated getting 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,” Kardashian, 30, who was shooting E!’s Kourtney & Khloe Take Miami at the time, 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. I can’t even tell you how many people just say, ‘Oh, get an abortion.’ Like it’s not a big deal.”

After taking to E!’s marketing department researching online, Kourtney decided to keep the baby:

“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,” she recalls. “I was reading these things of how many people are traumatized by it afterwards.”
After scouring the Internet, Kardashian says 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.”
Kardashian says she did some intense soul-searching. “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.”

While publicly admitting you contemplated aborting your child might not be the smartest idea, it’s obvious what Kourtney’s trying to do here: Downplay any suspicions about not wanting a baby so no one blames her when Khloe’s asked to babysit and ends up eating it. Always thinking ahead, those Kardashians.

    I am so moved by this expression of deep parental love.

  2. I don’t personally agree with the act of abortion, but there is always RU48-6. In my mind, that is a much lesser “evil” so to speak.

    Good thing she didnt.

    Think what you want, but you’re definitely going to hell if you kill your baby. Not to mention girls who usually get them are slutty or stupid. I’m 23 and am not having a baby till im like 30. And unlike so many stupid slutty girls, i’m smart enuf to make sure that happens as planned.

    Not that hard to not get knocked up if you have half a brain. And youre not a slut who opens her legs to any guy.

    Just sayin.

  6. …”And I felt in my body, this is meant to be. God does things for a reason…”

    Reason being you’re too fucking stupid to use birth control.

    Ah well, nice to hear of people taking some responsibility for their actions, anyway.

    @ 3, 4 – That morning after pill is basically last chance birth control isn’t it? Of course she’d have to take it as a precaution, probably wouldn’t know for days anyway

    UMMM Having sex does not make you a SLUT…
    HAVE AS MUCH SEX AS YOU LIKE…
    JUST BE SMART!

    That’ll teach her not to hang out in the men’s room anymore.

    If only her mother had gone through with an abortion…

    such a stupid girl. “God” didnt do this to you, Kourtney. You forgot to take your pill you dumb bitch.

  11. Alys

    You Kourtney B I T C H!!!!
    The pregnancy it is just another way how she is trying to get off the shadow of her sister’s ass!!..
    Very sad… she has to even make public that she is having a kida that wasn’t even plan with the looser of her boyfriend… I don’t even remeber why this bitch is “famous”…just because she has money..
    A single pregnant woman without money.. prostitute..
    A single pregnant woman with money.. she is a great woman!

    Well, at least the kid will eat good. With Khloe out there hunting wombats in the night, there will be no shortage of dead carcasses piled up out back to grill up!

    @7 “And unlike so many stupid slutty girls, i’m smart enuf to make sure that happens as planned.”

    That was the most amazing “Holier than thou” sentence ever. Your English teacher would be so proud.

  14. Lux

    @6: so not having an abortion makes Kourtney a non-slutty girl? Yeah, riiiiiiiight…

    My fav part is def the “I’m smart enuf”.

  15. squeehunter

    It would have been SO hard for her to carry around a baby with her life being so hard. So hard.

  16. Nameless

    This chick get pregnant because she forgot to take her pill and had unprotected sex. I agree its her body and she had the right to her own decisions but I disagree with her justifying abortion as an alternative means of birth control because her own stupidity,

    She is 30 YEARS OLD, not some teenage pregnancy.

    At this rate her baby will mature into adulthood before she does.

    Ultimately, I’m glad she came to her senses but I hope baby reads this one day and exacts his vengeance Stewie Griffin style.

  17. really

    I’m sure all those rape victims are stoked to hear that it’s your judgement that they go to ‘hell’ for aborting those babies, #6. BTW, when’d you get that direct line to god installed?

  18. google me

    UGH I HATE THESE KARDASHIANS!! SUCH DUMB BITCHES WHO HAVE NO RIGHT TO PROCREATE.

    @ #6,
    That is assuming that there is actually something called Hell and not just some made up place invented to dissuade people from behaving badly. I would argue that it’s more probable that it’s a fictional place. But what about her getting knocked up outside of wedlock? Are you saying one thing is worse than the other or is a sin a sin (in your book)?

    Just Sayin.

    In any event, any person who (like this Kardashian bitch) thinks unplanned pregnancy is no big deal should be shot. Period. Then again if they w

    Great, they’re breeding.

    This is a shame. Kourtney was the one i liked too. So she decided not to get an abortion because of the guilt she’d feel for doing it? Well thats a great reason. I mean loving the kid and not wanting to kill it would be better but hey, whatever gets her through the night.

  23. Danklin24

    So Laura, whats it like to a be a 23 year old virgin? Because you know, anstating from sex is the only sure way to guarantee you wont get knocked up before your planned age of 30. Or do you really think condoms and bc work 100%? Oh you do? thats cute.

  24. Jen

    #6: Right. Too bad Hell is a bunch of made up garbage . It’s nice to see that you think you know the mind of god ( not that he actually exists). You pro-lifers are so often the first bitches in line at Planned Parenthood when you get knocked up. Then you go right back to your sanctimonious horse shit. A clump of cells isn’t a baby, it’s a parasite and until the fetus is viable on it’s own it doesn’t have personhood. Whine all you want, but in the end it comes down to the old cliche: Don’t like abortion? Don’t fucking have one.

    Why do these no-talents get reality TV shows? Who actually watches that crap?

  26. lola

    At least this woman is being honest. Many women probably feel the same way, but only say things that makes themselves look good. She made the right decision and I only hope she loves this baby like it was planned.

    Saying that being responsible can stop you from getting pregnant is bull. Birth control is not %100 accurate even if taken like clockwork. No form of birth control is %100 effective. And to say that women should wait until marriage for sex or be abstinent until the want a baby is also bull. I think sex has been cheapened and is not taken seriously enough, but it is important to know if your partner is sexually compatible before marriage or it will end up in DIVORCE.

    OJ offered his own personal abortion service to her – he’s willing to work nights and he’s quick…

    “After scouring the Internet, Kardashian says she started to realize that an abortion wasn’t an option for her. ”

    Damn you Google! And Al Gore for that matter.

    That trashy family reproducing? I’m really for sterilization now!

  30. Randall

    too bad she didn’t get that abortion. I can think of at least 3 Kardashian related abortions that would have made this world a better place.

    #28 LOL, good one!!

  32. jlylec

    i wish kourtney-ney’s MOM had had an abortion. stupid fat broad. the state should cut that baby out of her now while it has a chance…living off brine in a petri dish would be a better shot.

  33. Well, at least the kid will eat good. With Khloe out there hunting wombats in the night, there will be no shortage of dead carcasses piled up out back to grill up! That trashy family reproducing? I’m really for sterilization now!

    If she can not remember her birth control pill @ 30 years old, how the hell is she going to take care of a kid?

    “how the hell is she going to take care of a kid? ”

    She won’t be. Nannies will be utilized.

  37. Jim Jones

    lol “God does things for a reason.” Yeah right, you’re living proof that that isn’t true. No, some guy stuck his dick in you, his sperm fertilized your egg, and now you’re pregnant. It’s not really some religious or cosmic mystery.

  38. Kimmi

    this woman has no class. She would probably eat her own young.

  39. I'm actually female

    Seriously, is she so stupid she believes all those “women” online talking about regretting their abortions are really women who had abortions? What an idiot. Everybody knows they’re actually guys who can’t get laid and James Dobson and angry Christian spinsters. I had an abortion, and you know what I felt afterward? RELIEF!! Enjoy those diaper changes and your saggy boobs, sister.

  40. mk

    starvation, abuse and child sex slaves all over the world and this nitwit thinks god had something to do with HER pregnancy? Way to take responsibility for your actions! She was probably stoned and drunk when she got pregnant and now she’s getting all preachy and god like.

  41. netstarman

    I wish she would get a abortion, if she can’t go to the doctors for it maybe start off small. She should go to a pool and get on the top diving board and do a belly flop.That sounds bad, but if the little aquaman pops out it would probably sound like a Cheerios box hitting the floor hard.

  42. joeamma

    Do you guys think shes going to get all fat and saggy now? I sure hope not, it makes us midgets look bad.

  43. Tori

    Why did she go back with that douchebag, piece of shit? I guess she likes being a doormat.

    The beauty of abortion is, that only liberals do it. I say reconsider, whore.

    Who wants to see this tramp stamped piece of scum without clothes….. This person defines disgusting and lowlife!

    25 – I love you. 6 – your parents are brother and sister, aren’t they.

    WOWWWWWWWWWW… Probably one of the most retarded statements I’ve heard all day…

    Mike, I hope you realize that the birth rates are much higher among people who are.. “less intelligent” Women who can not afford birth control, women who are not sexually educated, women who are stupid enough to fall for their hillbilly boyfriend.. aka LIBERALS… They are too stupid to a) keep their legs shut b) prevent an unwanted pregnancy… The truth is, more Republican, conservative women are smart enough to know when, and when not to bring a child into this world.. There just isn’t as many statistics about them because they can also afford an actual private Doctor as opposed to the free clinic that most LIBERALS are used to. The only “conservatives” that aren’t taking care of business are the bible bumping freaks of america.. They are too busy molesting their churchboys and practicing sodomy in the bathroom.

    People like you are the reason why the world will be completely full of usless retards in the years to come.

    On a personal note, Congratulations to Kourtney!!
    I am very jealous of the luxurious life your child will lead!!
