Kourtney Kardashian is Singing Our Song
Dr. Alveda King, Director of African American Outreach for Priests for
Life and Day Gardner, President of the National Black Pro-Life Union
says, "Thank you Kourtney Kardashian, for saying what we've been saying
all along. We don't have to kill our children to have better lives."
"Kourtney's singing our song, she found messages from post-abortive
women like myself on the internet, and realized that abortion can cause
a lot of pain and grief," said Dr. Alveda King.
According to People Magazine, Kourtney looked online and read stories
of women who had abortions. "I was sitting on the bed
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."
Dr. Alveda King, Director of the African American Outreach at Priests
for Life said, "I am a member of the Silent No More Awareness Campaign,
which posts the largest collection of such testimonies on the internet
precisely for the purpose of exposing the truth about abortion."
Lorey Carter, Director of Underserved Outreach for the CareNet said,
"Kudos to Kourtney! She will experience first-hand that an unplanned
pregnancy does not mean an unwanted child. Her doctor advised her well
saying she would not regret having her baby."
Carter added, "Motherhood does not deny a woman her full potential but
helps her to embrace it. Many women became much more responsible and
focused because they have a child depending on them."
Shealeta Reed Executive Director of Atlanta CareNet Center agreed,
"Those insisting on abortion cry out because of the lack of access to
resources to sustain life. The answer is not funding legalized abortion
but rather funding more jobs and accessible resources, education and
Day Gardner of National Black Pro-Life Union adds, "Children are a
blessing and a gift--that doesn't change if a child is unplanned or
unwanted. Every gift of life should be welcomed with joy by his or her
natural parents and if not, by adoptive parents."
"Women's procreative reproductive rights protect a woman's health for,
if and when she is ready to be a mother," said Dr. King.
Kourtney Kardashian recently told People Magazine why she is keeping
her baby, "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
