Kourtney was shooting E!'s Kourtney & Khloe Take Miami. Talking exclusively to the People, she said, "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. 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."
According to Kourtney, her boyfriend Scott Disick, 26, who reconciled with her shortly after finding out she was pregnant, is supportive either way. "He wanted me to talk about it more, but I just kept to myself. He said, I really want you to keep it, but I will support you whatever you decide to do," The People quotes Kourtney saying.
However, confused Kardashian called her best friend to solve her problem. She discussed with her physician to find out the risks and stuff after abortion. Then she did a research on the subject on Internet. After reading the stories of people, who felt so guilty from having an abortion, Kardashian started to realize that an abortion was not an option for her.
Kardashian also did some intense soul-searching. She realised God does things for a reason and it was the right thing that was happening in her life. She also felt mean and selfish to terminate the baby. "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," she said to the People.
After consulting sisters, friends, doctor and doing research on abortion Kourtney came to conclusion that she should have the baby. She said, "I got so excited, and when I told Scott he was so excited. But I think if I had said I'm not going to keep it, I really think he would have pushed me into keeping it."
