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.

    Wow, apparently I’m really popular!

    Anyhow, I can’t believe how stupid most of you are. LMAO! I must have really poured some salt into the wounds of you little skanks who have already had an abortion or two, and you’re pissed I’m making you feel bad about it. Which you should. Regardless of whether or not you believe in god, abortion IS wrong, and what goes around comes around. I certainly wouldn’t want that weighing on my conscience.

    # 8: UMMMM, I didn’t say having sex makes you a slut. It’s when you open your legs to just about anyone that you’re a slut. And unfortunately, most girls I know who’ve had a baby-killing operation, fit the latter description. They’re the skanky-attention seeking whores who got knocked up by someone “they met a bar”. S-A-D. So yeah………shut your slutty mouth. Thx!

    #14: You’re a complete fag. I’m not typing a college essay here you idiot.

    #15: You’re just as stupid as #14. Did I even say that? No, I’m just making a point that most girls who do ARE sluts. Can’t argue with facts people.

    #18: I wouldn’t say they’d be stoked to hear that at all. They’d proably feel pretty rotten about themselves. What are you talking about? While I do feel for these girls who are put in this position, unfortunately it’s still not an excuse to play Creator and decides who should live or not. It’s not the baby’s fault either. It’s called adoption. But I can’t believe I’m even wasting my time writing this sentence, cuz the percentage of girls who get abortions due to this reason is maybe like 3%. MAX.

    #20: Like I said, what goes around comes around. If you get an abortion, you’re a bad person, and bad things will eventually happen to you, regardless of whether or not you believe in god. And use your fucking head you moron. Obviously getting knocked up before you’re married is a stupid thing to do, but as long as you’re not a murderer, I’m sure god will be able to forgive you. At least you haven’t killed anyone. Just sayin.

    #24: Not quite sure what “anstating” from sex means, but nope i’m not a virgin, and i’ve been having a great sex life with my bf for 6 years. And yeah actually the birth control and spermicide has evidently been working very effectively. Like I said, if you have half a brain and are careful, you’re pretty much guaranteed not to get knocked up. Don’t have half a brain, you twat? O, that’s too bad. :(

    #48: Don’t worry honey, you might one day be able to push the memory of the abortion out of your head, so you won’t have to think about it so much. Next time, be a little more careful.

    Choose life people! Your mom did!

    <3

    25 and 40 – I love you both.

    Laura – You are a big doo doo head. Stop it. Just stop it.

    I can’t wait to get pregnant just so I can gets me an abortion. Weee!

  4. Kim

    I am glad she did not go through with the abortion, more women should think it through.

  5. Laura

    Megan, you’re fat.

  6. lolkk

    Laura, you’re a man.

  7. Fati

    Huh. You people kill me. A 30 year old woman is ALREADY too old to be having a first baby. And you are thinking of having an abortion? Have you ever thought why there are so many people with inborn disorders out there? Because you are too selfish to have a baby before you are at least frigging 35 at which point your biological clock is ticking its last tick. You fucking idiots.

  8. sunflower1215xo

    yea…i would rather women get abortions than actually have the baby and later decapitate it and eat it’s brains…or stab it to death…beat it…strangle it…poison it….or breast feed it while drunk…AND BY THE WAY ALL OF THOSE INCIDENTS ARE TRUE AND RECENTLY JUST HAPPENED….http://news.aol.com/article/mom-boyfriend-indicted-in-boys-death/630563<--------that link right there you should all check out if you don't agree with abortion because I would rather see abortions occur than this sick, twisted shit...read the story and the parent criminal cases...maybe you'll reconsider

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

    This is because she was searching all the other celebrity moms who used their pregnancies and babies to cash in on all the magazines.

    This is EXACTLY how her life is going to play out now:

    1. Gets big and fat from being pregnant and cashes in on all the pregnancy/new mom magazines out there.

    2. Has the baby and sells the photos to all the tabloids.

    3. Hires a trainer to help her lose the baby weight then go cash in on all the fitness magazines telling new moms “How she lost the baby weight and you can too!” articles.

    4. Hires a team of Mexican nannies to tend to every need of the baby while she whines and cries about how hard being a celebrity mom is. If the baby daddy is no longer there she whine about how hard it is being a single mother.

    5. Kim sits on baby and it gets wedged in her ass crack suffocating to death. A charity fund is set up in the kids name to prevent Kim’s ass from being within 20 feet of children and possibly small animals.

    @Laura: honey, being called stupid by someone who has the writing skills of a six-year old is why I love this site.

  11. So that’s something you tell to People magazine? WTF is wrong with people these days?

  12. google me

    #61, no, this is what the Kardaskanks tell People magazine. The three sister’s IQ is less than their combined show size. Of course they’re going to say stupid things and do even stupider things.

  13. Kim

    Being pregnant will be a blessing to her.

  14. dunno

    I almost cared.

    I, dunno.

  15. Kelley

    Pissed you off, did we, Laura ? Fuck off and go thump your bible. There is nothing sadder in this world than an unwanted child. Pro Choice !! You call people you’ve never met “fags.” Do they all go to hell too ? Get a life.

  16. the real Martina

    Is it true that her step-daddy, Bruce Jenner, is the father? Because that would certainly explain why she would keep the child.

  17. Uhm, who cares?

    Alright, first of all, I think this baby will be good for her; It would make her more mature and probably force her to grow up– It worked with Nicole. Not getting the abortion is, in my opinion, the first step to responsibility (eventhough prior to that thought, she wasn’t.) At least she isn’t running away from her problems.

    Second, I don’t think religion should be talked about in these kind of situations, because obviously people get offended by seeing the word “God” or “Bible” on their monitor. Seriously people, if people like to put their opinion on things, just let it be instead of bashing on their religion or whatever they have to type and keep an open mind. People have freedom of speech– or rather freedom of typing– so set it aside instead of making a big fuss of it. Don’t like it? Don’t read it.

    On the side note, she’s 30, rich and can do anything she wants. Sure she “forgot” to take the pill, but c’mon she deserves a chance? (LOL)

    Easy way to lower all abortions by half:

    Get stupid people to use contraception. An IUD if possible – it’s more effective than sterilization. I have one and there ain’t no way (well, 1 / 1000) that Mr. sperm is going on vacation in my uterus.

  22. Darth

    Aww! And we can watch this all on her new show!

  23. Galtacticus

    She’s such a good and open girl! *gasp*

  24. Boogeyman King Dong

    I wonder when that tall girl next to her is going to be pregnant!?

  25. Prettybaby

    As snarky as I am everyday of my flipping life, I thought reading this…she seemed pretty cool. I can’t snark over it. She only talked about was almost every chick in this country has gone through.

    To the Religious Fanatics on here judging…come on. NEVER judge this type of thing unless YOU have been there. It ain’t easy sister.

    Oh and to the fat dykes on here with the “I wanna get pregnant so I can have an abortion” Really– shut the fuck up. Think of something funny to say.

  26. peaches

    I agree with 75 and add that even smart people using contraception can still get preggers. There’s nothing fail proof–even the pill and IUDs malfunction sometimes. Having abortion as an option is key for all woman. And don’t be so foolish–most women who have had an abortion don’t regret it and aren’t wracked with guilt about it, much as the religious fuckwits would like them to be.

  27. lol

    laura, i hope your contraceptives fail, so you can become a slut just like those who are so far beneath you.

  28. Jen

    I don’t see why she should feel embarrassed or ashamed for contemplating an abortion. The last I heard, it was legal. And nobody’s business.

    Not everyone who aborts a pregnancy has a shitty reason for it. Maybe some of them, but who can say what’s a good reason or not? I had an abortion once, after I was married. I was on birth control and it still happened. I didn’t miss a pill or anything. Not even one. Not ever. I might have kept the baby, but I’m a schizophrenic. I’m pretty well balanced on the meds right now but they seem to not work sometimes. I thought about it really hard and when it came right down to it, keeping the baby would have been wrong. They say I likely inherited the disease from my mother and I might have passed it on. Living life like this barely can be called living. I spend my entire life feeling things that my loved ones have to explain to me aren’t true. Sometimes what they say makes sense and sometimes it doesn’t. I spent the short time of my pregnancy catatonic most of the time, or so my husband tells me, laying on the floor because I’d scream when he tried to put me into bed. I don’t remember that part. All I really remember is that I felt like there was an infection eating me all up and not even my religious upbringing could save me from it. I thought about how god was watching me and judging the way I hated my husband so much for infecting me. Hey, maybe god is still pissed at me but I don’t regret killing that tiny group of undifferentiated cells because a baby wouldn’t have been safe with me and I couldn’t have ever felt ok again if I’d given it away to someone else and it had lived it’s life like I do. So seriously, think a little before you start spouting off like a stupid bitch.

    @58
    I made my decision before that piece of news about the decapitation came out but I remember reading it and feeling a little better. It’s a terrible story obviously and a tragedy, but there was a short time where I wondered if maybe a baby might have been safe around me. But I know that I sometimes have really bad ideas that I can’t get out of my head and it would have been unfair to bring a child into it. My husband came into my life knowing what he was getting into and loving me anyway, a baby would have no choice. The times I’ve hurt my husband, he’s been able to protect himself. A baby can’t do that.

  30. Poor Laura...

    Your the Number: 1 Reason why I support Abortion!
    Too bad your Mother was ill informed when she got Knocked up; could have saved her a lot of money feeding you all these nights you sit home alone.

  31. Ella

    I have to agree with the poster who said that what she felt after her abortion was RELIEF. In fact, that’s the most common emotion that women report. It’s mainly the very biased pro-life sites out there that will tell girls that they will feel guilt and shame if they have the procedure.

    It’s nice that his girl wanted to talk about the issues, but if she was going to bring up such a balanced topic I wish she’d done some proper research first.

  32. Pathetic Hypocritical Laura

    Laura, if you really are Christian then you know you have no right to judge. But you’re one of those fake American Christians who cherry picks beliefs so they can stand on their high and mighty soapbox (all the while perpetrating every nasty sin they can behind closed doors – did Daddy touch you wrong, dear?). Meanwhile, you are so clueless to the world and it’s ills, you can’t grasp that there isn’t enough resources for all the people we make. It’s called reality. Your Good Book doesn’t consider REALITY in it’s mythos, does it? If you’re so high and mighty, darling, where’s your adopted African American HIV positive crack baby? Hmmmmmm? Either way, I hope your contraception fails and you are faced with an unwanted pregnancy *very* soon. Toodles, clueless fucktard.

  33. I’m wondering which “god” she was referring to. It’s easy to slam Heidis hypocrisy because she’s specific. Now, if Kourtney follows Dionysus or someone like that, he might not have a problem Keeping Up With The Kumdumpsters.

    I don’t usually read these celebrity websites and I have never posted on one but I feel compelled. Kourtney was honest about her considering abortion – it is a natural fear of the difficult situation she finds herself in. Men can not understand the fear of realizing that you are bringing a life into this world. You will be tied forever to a man that you may not love and who will most surely walk away when things are tough. I applaud her amazing decision to have her baby. You will NEVER regret having this child, Kourtney. It will dramatically change your life. Things may not work out with the father but you will be strong for your child. Disregard the nasty comments posted here. Focus your time, love and attention on the new life you have created. God does indeed do every thing purposefully – find His purpose here. Each day with Him and baby will be a beautiful gift.

    Is this the extra annoying midgety Kardashian?

    Like the dog faced deformed short version of Kim?

  37. i had an abortion

    i had an abortion, and it didn’t ruin my life or crush my emotions. like several other people have already said, i mostly felt relieved.
    and for all the “oh give it up for adoption” people out there. do you know how many kids are in foster care or group homes waiting for a loving home? and do you know why they aren’t getting one? because everyone wants to adopt a BABY, not a kid older than one year old. i say if you feel so much love and charity, why not adopt an older kid, but they won’t because they don’t want to adopt out of love or charity, they want to adopt for their own selfish desire to raise a little clone who thinks and acts just like they do. they don’t want what they consider “damaged goods”. i’d rather not help that sort keep their ideals going into the future. if i got pregnant again before i graduate (birth control has already failed me once) i’d have another abortion.

  38. shakera

    I’m proud of her and her decision. Aborting a baby is not right everyone have a right to live.
    Kourtney I happy you didn’t abort the child

  39. Shocked

    I think ur all uncivilized,and shallow.2 make such rude comments.i think ur parents shudve all aborted u,bcoz ur definitely mistakes..we really dnt need judgement like this.

  40. Laura

    Laura

  41. Bobbius Corwen

    Good for her then. <.<

  42. Well good for her. I really wish she was smart enough by now to use some sort of birth control but I think that she made the right choice in keeping the baby. That love can never be compared.
