February 16, 2011 (LifeSiteNews.com) – In a soon-to-be-published interview
with Rolling Stone, teen idol Justin Bieber revealed that he shares
something in common with a growing number of young people in the United
States – he is pro-life.

“I really don’t believe in abortion,” Bieber told contributing editor
Vanessa Grigoriadis. “It’s like killing a baby?”

When pressed as to whether he opposes abortion in the case of rape, the
young singer replied, “Um. Well, I think that’s really sad, but
everything happens for a reason. I guess I haven’t been in that position,
so I wouldn’t be able to judge that.”

Canadian-born Bieber’s conviction evidently has nothing to do with party
politics, as he revealed when asked who he would support when he’s old
enough to vote. “I’m not sure about the parties. But whatever they have
in Korea, that’s bad,” he said.

Erik Whittington of the pro-life organization Rock for Life said Bieber’s
remarks are “Great news” since he “has huge influence on young

At the same time he questioned Bieber’s hedging on the question of rape.
“Justin, I thought you said, ‘It’s like killing a baby?’ If it is,

Bieber also suggested that his young fans should wait to have sex. “I
don’t think you should have sex with anyone unless you love them. … I

In a recent interview with Catholic Online, Justin Bieber’s mother, Pattie
Mallette, said that she “brought Justin up in the faith” and that her
son attended a Catholic school. Mallette, a former Catholic, identifies as a
non-denominational Christian.

Mallette asked her son’s Christian fans to pray for the young singer, who
shot to stardom at the ripe age of 15 after his single “One Time”
reached number 12 on the Canadian Hot 100, and called the entertainment
industry a “dark” business. “My prayer is for Justin to be protected
against the temptations of the industry,” she said.

The youthfulness of the American pro-life movement – the March for Life in
Washington this year, as usual, owed much of its size to an army of young
people – has been noticed even by leaders of the abortion lobby. “I just
thought, my gosh, they are so young. There are so many of them, and they are
so young,” said NARAL Pro-Choice America president Nancy Keenan last year,
after observing the March.
