Justin Beiber's Mom Caught Up In a Political Debate!
Justin Bieber's Mom Isnâ€™t Starting an Abortion Debate â€¦ Sheâ€™s Sharing Why She Chose to Have Her Son
Justin Bieberâ€™s mom wants one thing made clear: She does not have a political opinion on the abortion issue. Pattie Mallette settles the controversial â€śBieberâ€™s Mom Debateâ€ť by stating â€śI havenâ€™t shared my stance with anyone and Iâ€™m not here to make a political statement, so thereâ€™s been a lot of assumptions made.â€ť
Critics have been hurling accusations at the superstarâ€™s mom over her recent involvement in Crescendo, a new film that she hopes will raise 10 million dollars for a shelter for pregnant teens. She herself stayed in such a place when she got pregnant with Justin as a teenager and was subsequently kicked out of her house.
Pattie has been very vocal in the past about her struggles as a pregnant teen, the pressure on her to have an abortion, and her attempted suicide. She says she connected with the plot of the movie, which is a biopic about Beethovenâ€™s mother, who attempted abortion and suicide.
She signed on as an executive producer after the film was finished, and while she admits there are some producers involved that hold anti-abortion beliefs, her only goal is to support residential programs like the one that helped her as a teen in trouble. She said:
"The pregnancy center that I lived in is now closed because of lack of funds, so I thought it was a really important thing that they're doing to raise money."
Itâ€™s a sad day when people will make assumptions about your political beliefs and attack you for them when youâ€™re just trying to raise money for a good cause. She never said she was anti-abortion -- sheâ€™s only shared her own story. She made the decision to keep her baby, but doesnâ€™t assume to know whatâ€™s best for other mothers.
Maybe she is a pro-lifer. If thatâ€™s the case, then I applaud her for showing girls that they have options, rather than just condemning them for considering having an abortion. Sheâ€™s been there. She knows how scary it is. She also knows that rainbows come after storms, and sheâ€™s in a position to help girls make a real choice.
Pro-life or pro-choice -- it doesnâ€™t matter. All that matters is that Pattie Mallette is trying to make a difference for some girls that might not have anyone else to turn to. And thatâ€™s a good thing.
Do you think Justin Bieberâ€™s mom has a secret pro-life agenda?
