Is Justin Bieber the New Face of the Pro-Life Movement?
A conservative website is celebrating things Justin Bieber's mother Pattie Mallette has said and written about her past, including her decision to give birth, as opposed to aborting, after getting pregnant at 17. Does this mean that Justin Bieber is the new face of the pro-life movement?
He's like Tim Tebow, whose mother faced a difficult and dangerous pregnancy after coming down with an infection that caused the placenta to separate and doctors to predict a stillbirth, yet she chose to carry to term. The Biebs is a miracle of life and of sideswept bangs. The website TownHall has gone as far as to suggest that our world would be a much darker place had the 'Boyfriend' singer's mother embarked on a different path. Instead, she chose life and we all get to be entertained by Bieber. See, sometimes humanity gets it right!
When people suggested that Mallette terminate the pregnancy, she refused, saying, "I just knew I couldn’t. I just knew I couldn’t. I just know I had to keep him. And, do the best. I — you know, I didn’t know how I was going to do it. But I just knew that I couldn’t — I couldn’t abort. I had to do my best. I had to see what I could do. And I was determined to do whatever it took."
The site called the Biebs "a living example of the sanctity of human life." While they are using loaded language tied to their beliefs, they are not far from the truth.
