Okay, I’m not sure I would exactly call her a role model, but reality TV star Kourtney Kardashian might just have become an unwitting example for the pro-life movement.
Kardashian, 30 and unmarried, recently found herself pregnant with a child conceived with an ex-boyfriend. According to Kardashian, several of her friends flippantly told her she should just end her pregnancy.
“I can’t even tell you how many people just say, ‘Oh, get an abortion.’ Like it’s not a big deal.”
While Kardashian told the press that she does still think women should have a choice, the fact that she even acknowledges that having an abortion is a “big deal” is a huge admission, especially in the “anything goes” culture that is Hollywood.
Kardashian also talked about doing internet research and finding stories from women who have had abortions.
“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 said. “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.
She also decided to talk to her physician. “My doctor told me there is nothing you will ever regret about having the baby, but he was like, ‘You may regret not having the baby.’ And I was like: That is so true. And it just hit me.“
Congratulations, Kourtney. Your doctor was right. You won’t regret this. Enjoy your blessing.
