Kourtney Kardashian debated abortion

Shortly after discovering she was with child, Kourtney was thrown into one of the most difficult decisions of her life. What to wear during her pregnancy. Just kidding. It was abortion. She was deciding whether or not to get 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.”

So true, Kourtney. Most people don’t think abortion through. They don’t even consider the fact that a pregnancy could boost ratings for an upcoming reality series. But not you, Kourtney. You’re a forward thinker. High five!

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.”

I know. It was as if God himself made you not take your birth control pills and made you pregnant just in time for your show. Blessed you are.

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.”

Oh, you mean Scott Disick? The guy you broke up with in February only to reunite with after finding out you were having his kid? Nothing brings two people closer than an unplanned pregnancy.

I’m sure the baby’s gonna love to read these comments when he/she/it is older. “At first, mommy didn’t want you. Then, mommy realized she was old and said, what the hell, i’ll have the little bugger. So, are they still teasing you at school?”

My stepdaughter is one of those abortion survivors — her skank mom aborted 5 or 6 but then kept this one. Kid knows it and is messed up now.

Well played, Kourtney.
