Kylie Jenner is reportedly pregnant and everyone has an opinion about it. This is not uncommon for pregnant women to experience -- unsolicited advice pours in all through motherhood, too. But comments from Perez Hilton regarding Kylie getting an abortion seemed to strike extra hard.

The Internet went wild after Perez Hilton released a video in which he said of Kylie, who is assumed to be 18 weeks into her pregnancy: "If I were Kris Jenner, I would tell that girl to get an abortion!" Perez has now released another video to explain what he was really thinking.

Perez clarified, "What I meant to say if I didn't say it accurately is that, if I were her mother, I would've told Kylie Jenner to get an abortion when they found out in July." He also added that this is his opinion and he's allowed to have one.

I agree with one thing he's saying -- he is entitled to his opinion. But the thing here is that he has a major platform, so it's not like he's just whispering to his friend and no one else hears it -- because, come on ... you know people said the exact same thing he did. Still, that doesn't make it right. Putting your views on abortion aside, Kylie has decided to have this baby and it's her life. That decision should be respected.

Perez went on to say how seriously he takes his own role of being a parent and then bashed Kylie and said that her "skew of what is normal is totally off" and that he's "sad for that child, for that unborn child." 

His clarification of his original comments only seems to make things worse for me. Considering all that encompasses the life of Kylie, I think this baby is going to be just fine. Sure, Kylie's only 20 years old, but it's not age that makes a good mother -- it's everything that makes up that person. Kylie has love and that's what matters. She's financially secure and she's a Kardashian -- that whole family is full of kids who are clearly cared for and very loved. 

We can watch Keeping Up With the Kardashians and Life of Kylie and assume we know the inner workings of this whole family, but we don't. Those are reality shows with editors creating clips to make the program the most interesting. And while I know their real life is not exactly like the rest of ours, there are most certainly elements that are similar. Despite what some may think, they are human beings with all the feelings and emotions we all possess. And because Kylie is choosing to have this baby, we can choose to celebrate that fact. We are, after all, talking about another human being.
