Bieber’s Mom Producing Anti-Abortion Film

Maybe there were political undertones we missed to Justin Bieber’s song “Baby." The pop star’s mother, Pattie Mallette, is executive producing an anti-abortion short film that’s set to start screening Feb. 29. It’s Mallette’s hope that the film, called Crescendo, will raise $10 million for pregnancy centers. Mallette, who has been outspoken about the addiction and abuse that led to her teenage pregnancy, said she hopes that attaching her name to the film will let young women know that there are “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."
