February 17, 2011 (LifeSiteNews.com) – In the wake of Justin Bieber’s
pro-life remarks in an interview with Rolling Stone magazine, pro-life
leaders are urging widespread support for the young pop superstar, saying
its only a matter of time before he comes under attack for his defense of
the unborn.

“The attacks are going to come fast and furious,” said Bryan Kemper of
Stand True Ministries and Rock for Life. “I would not be surprised if he
has already received hate mail or even death threats.”

A number of pro-life groups, including Stand True Ministries, Live Action,
LifeNews.com and LifeSiteNews.com have joined forces to promote a Facebook
page in support of Bieber. The page provides information on how pro-life
individuals can contact Bieber to express their support.

In the interview with Rolling Stone, Bieber had said “I really don’t
believe in abortion. 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 don’t know how that would be a
reason. I guess I haven’t been in that position, so I wouldn’t be able
to judge that.”

Originally Rolling Stone had excluded the remark “I don’t know how that
would be a reason,” but later issued a correction.

“We are so proud of Justin for saying it like it is,” said Lila Rose of
Live Action. “Abortion is killing a baby, plain and simple and is the
greatest human rights abuse in our nation today.

“We encourage all of his fans to spread the pro-life Bieber Fever.”

Pro-abortion forces have already taken note of Bieber’s remarks: “Justin
Bieber’s unfortunate comments reflect entrenched anti-abortion rights
messaging that presents one view of morality, hereby declaring anyone with
another view immoral,” said NOW Action Vice President Erin Matson, in
comments quoted by Politico.

However, Abby Johnson, the former director of a Planned Parenthood clinic
turned pro-life activist, praised Bieber. “‘Out of the mouths of
babes’ goes the verse,” she said. “And young Justin Bieber could not
be more right in his reaction to the topic of abortion. “

“It was encouraging to see Justin Bieber boldly declare his pro-life
position, not only because of his influence as a teen idol, but because it
shows how deeply the pro-life message — that every abortion kills an
unborn child — has sunk into our culture,” said Eric Scheidler,
executive director of the Pro-Life Action League. “I hope his statement
will influence any of his fans who might ever face an untimely pregnancy to
choose life for their babies.”
