Justin Bieber’s Mom Produces Pro-Life Short Film

Justin Bieber has made no secret that he’s both a Christian and a bit of a mama’s boy, inviting Pattie Mallette as his date to numerous events and always showing her — and God — the utmost respect and reverence in his songs and awards show speeches. Similarly, Mallette, who was a teen mom, has made no secret that she’s Christian and supports the pro-life movement. (When your son is this successful, it’s easy to see why she’d be a proponent of the cause.)

She’s now taking it a step further, using her son’s spotlight, resources and connections to garner more attention to anti-abortion causes. Her latest effort? A short film.

The Huffington Post reports that Mallette is listed as an executive producer on the short film ‘Crescendo.’ While details about the actual movie are scarce, worldwide screenings will begin Feb. 28. Proceeds will be donated to pregnancy centers.

The move will likely have some controversy surrounding it, because not only is Bieber’s name indirectly attached to something that can impact his large, young, impressionable female fanbase, but because it’s coming along on the heels of the 40th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, the landmark Supreme Court case that legalized abortion nationwide in the United States.

What’s more, pregnancy centers have recently come under some harsh, possibly deserved criticism for appearing to be clinics offering a wide range of reproductive health services — when in actuality many have been accused of offering biased and occasionally inaccurate information to encourage patients to avoid abortion as an option.

In any case, Mallette said in a statement that she hopes ‘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.”
