Reality star Kim Kardashian quashed rumors on Saturday that she plans to vote for Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump. Instead, Kardashian said she is voting for Democrat Hillary Clinton because she is pro-abortion.
Last week, there were rumors that the reality show celebrity was thinking about voting for Trump after talking with her former step-father Bruce (now Caitlyn) Jenner, a Republican, US Magazine reports.
“There was a point when I wasn’t 100% sure I was even going to vote in this election; I didn’t want to vote blindly,” Kardashian wrote on her website Saturday. “But I also thought about how not voting would mean that I wasn’t making my voice heard, so I decided to talk to my closest friends and family who I love and trust, to have an open conversation about politics.”
Here’s more from the magazine:
After Jenner encouraged her to do her research on both Trump and Hillary Clinton, the 35-year-old says she “thought about the things that are so important to me that they outweigh everything else, such as gun control and protecting women’s rights to safe and legal abortion.”
“I found that without a doubt, I stand with Hillary. I’m with her,” she wrote. “I believe Hillary will best represent our country and is the most qualified for the job. This year, I’m not just voting for myself, but also for my children, and I took that into careful consideration when I made my decision.”

Kardashian did not blast Trump as some pro-abortion celebrities have done. Instead, she wrote, “I believe that both candidates have the intention of making the country a safer and stronger place for every American, they just have different ideas about how we get there.”
Her support for Clinton, however, will mean a less safe America for unborn babies. Clinton’s policies and promises about abortion would threaten the lives of even more unborn babies every year.
Clinton recently promised Planned Parenthood that she would work to overturn the Hyde Amendment and force taxpayers to pay for abortions through Medicaid. The Hyde Amendment, which has had decades of strong, bipartisan support, has saved more than 1 million children from abortion in the past four decades. If Clinton succeeds and Hyde is repealed, an estimated 33,000 more unborn babies would lose their lives to abortion every year in America.
Currently, about 1.1 million unborn babies are aborted legally in the U.S. each year.
Clinton also has defended the gruesome partial-birth abortion procedure, and opposed bans on discriminatory abortions based on a baby’s sex or disability. In a move that could affect the fates of unborn babies for years to come, Clinton also promised to nominate U.S. Supreme Court justices who will ensure that Roe v. Wade and abortion on demand up until birth remain the law of the land.
