Bieber's mom produces anti-abortion short film

By CHRISTY LEMIRE | Associated Press – 23 hrs ago

http://news.yahoo.co...-010557675.html

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Justin Bieber's mother, Pattie Mallette, is an executive producer on an upcoming anti-abortion short film.

The makers of "Crescendo" hope to raise $10 million for pregnancy centers at screenings worldwide starting Feb. 28. Mallette herself will appear at some of these, said production company Movie to Movement on Friday.

The pop star's mother has written and spoken extensively about the addiction and abuse that led to her teenage pregnancy.

Mallette said in a statement she hopes her involvement with "Crescendo" will "encourage young women all over the world, just like me, to let them know that there is a place to go, people who will take care of you and a safe home to live in if you are pregnant and think you have nowhere else to turn."

Until I hear anything on the matter from the boy himself, I won't hold him guilty by association.

Oh, and nice admission that sonny was an accident, mom!

Here's a word of advice: if you're trying to show people why they shouldn't have abortions, don't use Bieber as an example.

Why not? Bieber is a pretty good example of the success of not having the abortion. He's rich. Who wouldn't want a rich child?

Also, why must this thread become a Bieber bashing thread?

Back on topic: I disagree with her. Abortion should be the mother-to-be's choice. Just because her teenage pregnancy worked out, doesn't mean that everyone's will.

I like Justin Bieber. There are probably a billion people out there who are anti-abortion. Are you really going to try and hate all of them?

I am pro-choice. I believe in the freedom to allow people to make their own decisions about their body. I also believe in the freedom for other people to voice their concerns about an issue. I understand that hearing someone's opinion doesn't mean that I am being forced to agree with it.

OMG we could've had McKeown!

I think Virtanen was a terrible pick given that he's out for 6 months which will hinder his development. You don't pick someone at #6 under that circumstance, along with the fact that he was given a 3/5 IQ (aka he's dumb). 

God dammit Benning. WHY VIRTANEN? Terrible move.

I think it is pretty clear than any real hate for anti-abortionists should be limited to those related to Justin Bieber.

That blurb sounded more like she was encouraging people not to have abortions, rather than trying to change any laws. Don't know why even pro-choice types would have a problem with that. She is after all just trying to influence their choice. But reactionaries come in all flavors.

And, as there is some Bieber bashing going on, I guess its time to remind people once again that: a) that girl still probably wouldn't like you if Bieber didn't exist and he's not a threat to you. B) its very likely that at least one band you listen to (and probably more) has less talent than him.

Because most of these Bieber haters look up to different role models like Micheal Vike, Whitney Houston, Micheal Jackson, OJ Simpson, 2Pac.......

And the fact the kid has tons of money and their wives, girlfriends, boyfriends would dump them in a heartbeat for a date with the Bieber. LOL

You have to be a true bandwagoneer if you buy Mike's line about looking for the right deal to trade Luongo.

True fans and hockey diehards know, that is double talk for, "Luongo is a high ticket commodity now or next year, we'll keep him around just in case Schneider turns out to be a lemon and chokes games."

And choke he will.

I know this. I'm never wrong.

What a horrible mission statement. /sarcasm

If this is all the video is promoting, why should Mallette be vilified? The statement quoted above isn't saying anything that someone from a pro-choice perspective wouldn't also say.

Justin Bieber Flashes Bare Butt In Instagram Photo

http://news.yahoo.com/justin-bieber-flashes-bare-butt-instagram-photo-173500030.html


Access Hollywood – 4 hrs ago



Justin Bieber's got back.

Following a rough spell for the pop superstar (he and girlfriend Selena Gomez recently split, then there was the alleged pot-smoking photo scandal, followed by the paparazzo killed while trying to shoot picture's of the singer's car), Justin posted a photo of himself mooning the camera to his Instagram account on Saturday.

The picture was quickly deleted, but not before it hit 86,000 likes - you can see the photo HERE.

The Biebs' manager, Scooter Braun, took to Twitter to joke about the cheeky photo (using perhaps the best hashtag of the week), writing, "as a prankster u have to respect another good prank. only makes sense. #crackdealer"

The "Beauty and the Beat" singer kept his reply short and sweet, Tweeting, "Haha."

And it seems Justin is getting quite comfortable in his adult skin.

In addition to sharing his backside-baring pic, the singer stripped off his shirt during his Nashville concert on Friday night, showing off his red boxer briefs and leaving little to the imagination as the waistband of his pants was sagging far below his waist. See the photo HERE.

Ignorant of what? Presumptuous about what? I don't like the hard line pro-lifers at all, but I see nothing wrong with trying to persuade people to choose keeping a baby over getting an abortion. Why be so reactionary and rigid about your view? If it comes out that she's another hard liner then fine. But based on her statement and your reaction to it, its you that are sounding like a hard liner.

What's with all of this hate on Justin Bieber. If you don't like his music, that's one thing. He's probably got a nicer income than everyone on CDC.
At least he's singing about love and all that other stuff kid's should be dreaming about. Nothing about drugs, sex and money like 90% of the musicians that teenagers listen to.

You know what? substitute "knee-jerk" for "reactionary". I didn't mean to imply ultra conservative. I use the words interchangeably and maybe thats wrong.

With overly generalized answers like that, how am I supposed to think of your response as anything but a knee-jerk reaction? I've read a lot of your posts, and I'm aware that you are a smart guy, and passionate about certain issues and all. So I know you are capable of a better answer then you gave. So why should I think about it as anything else but "I'm pro life and she's pro choice so its wrong cuz shes on the other side"?

Hell, maybe I am not a typical pro-choicer. I am not pro choice because I think abortions are the greatest thing since sliced bread. Its because I think having them illegal is worse for society than having them legal. If you try to make them unavailable I have a problem with that. If you try to talk someone out of getting one I don't.

Yeah

I'm completely against the idea of abortion in a lot of cases. I think it's horrible that we live in a society that thinks abortion is an acceptable option - that being said, I'm also very much pro-choice. WHAT? how can that be? I recognize that its a necessity but that doesn't mean I like it.

For me, the solution isn't to make abortions illegal, its to make other options more preferable through education and support. I know a lot of girls who've had abortions because they had ZERO support and felt they had no other option - and their decision has left a deep scar on them psychologically.

Kudos to Bieb's mom if this is what shes doing... but even I can't resist a good Bieber joke
