Justin Bieber’s Pro-Life Stance in Rolling Stone Isn’t Entirely His Fault

Justin Bieber has caused a shitstorm this week for his controversial opinions on abortion, which appear in the latest issue of Rolling Stone. Bieber said, “”I really don’t believe in abortion. I think [an embryo] is a human. It’s like killing a baby.” The teen tart even condemns abortions in special cases of rape, although he will concede that rape is “really sad.”

Ha. Ha. Ha. It’s funny when Christian teen superstars say things, isn’t it? And by funny, I mean very very scary. Having read these quotes online, I decided to buy the issue and read the whole profile to find out the complete truth. Perhaps the quotes were somehow taken out of context, or the article would reveal Bieber to be a poor misguided soul. Thankfully, the latter turned out to be pretty true. Justin Bieber may be ignorant, but he’s also very impressionable. Before we delve into why he may have said such idiotic things though, let’s take a moment to analyze his two convenient opinions regarding gay people and love.

Bieber on Gays: “It’s everyone’s own decision to [be gay]. (Author’s note: It’s not a decision, but thanks babe! Force-fed tolerance is a cute look for you!)  It doesn’t affect me and shouldn’t affect anyone else.”

How nice of Bieber to think kindly of gay people, especially since they constitute 30% of his fan base, and he’s also been known to resemble a lesbian. Whaddaguy!

His ideas on sex are also very illuminating. Since Bieber is essentially a pro-life Evangelical Christian nightmare, one might think he would believe in abstinence. Well, he does! Sort of. I mean maybe. I mean what was the question?

Bieber on Love: “I don’t think you should have sex with anyone unless you love them…I think you should just wait for the person you’re … in love with.”

Considering Bieber is a horny teenager, I’m sure he falls in love all the time with electronics, music, and girls. I wonder how many girls he’s fallen in love with before. If we get that number, then we’ll surely know how many girls he has slept with.

Admittedly, I’m being a little too critical. If I learned anything from reading the Rolling Stone article, it’s that Justin Bieber’s mother— ex-druggie and current born-again Christian Pattie Lynn Malllette—is largely responsible for her son’s questionable belief system. She claims Justin was a gift from God and that before her pregnancy, she was considering suicide. Once she learned she was with child, she believed it to be a sign from the heavens that she get her life together (by becoming a bigoted religious zealot intent on judging the lives of others. LOL.) and so she did just that.

When Scott Braun—the man who would eventually become Bieber’s manager—displayed interest in repping her son, Mallette originally spurned his advances because he was Jewish and she felt her son needed a Christian manager. However, after meeting Braun’s father at a T.G.I. Friday’s in an airport, Malllette was convinced that Braun was a good guy who came from a strong family, and accepted his representation. Umm…

Mallette says some wacky shit in the Rolling Stone piece, which make it worth the purchase alone. It also makes you realize that Bieber is still an uninformed child. When you’re a 16-year-old, your beliefs are still very much a reflection of your parents because you haven’t experienced or lived enough to have formed your own. When you criticize Bieber for saying these stupid things about abortion, you should really pinpoint the blame on his psycho Evangelical mother. He’s clearly been spoon-fed this crap since he was little. We can only hope he grows out of it soon and forms his own ideas, one of which being that pro-life people are creepy. TC mark

I'm a brat.

Trace the scars life has left you. It will remind you that at one point, you fought for something. You believed.

“You are the only person who gets to decide if you are happy or not—do not put your happiness into the hands of other people. Do not make it contingent on their acceptance of you or their feelings for you. At the end of the day, it doesn’t matter if someone dislikes you or if someone doesn’t want to be with you. All that matters is that you are happy with the person you are becoming. All that matters is that you like yourself, that you are proud of what you are putting out into the world. You are in charge of your joy, of your worth. You get to be your own validation. Please don’t ever forget that.” — Bianca Sparacino

        I stand by my point though – your earlier comment implies that pro-choice people encourage abortion, though not literally. You may not think that but I think a lot of people do, and it's that kind of language that cultivates such misconceptions.

        then what do u encourage? certinally not adoption

      • http://brontosaurus.deviantart.com/ Brendan

        That would have been a great reply without the last sentence.

        Pro-choice doesn't mean you're encouraging people to take abortion lightly. If you don't want a child, contraception should always be the first priority.

      • Shawn

        what about adoption? why must you terminate a life you already created??

      • http://brontosaurus.deviantart.com/ Brendan

        An embryo has no nervous system and no brain. Would you feel ok terminating a pregnancy where the fetus has has developed without a head? If so, I don't see why you could have any objection to aborting an undeveloped embryo. It gets a little greyer philosophically when the embryo develops into a fetus, but even then, at the early stages my point still stands.

        Family planning is important for the well being of the child who is born as much as for the well being of the parents.

      • Els

        It's the integrity behind it. It's like being in a class with an empty chair because the person that was supposed to sit there was aborted, whether at nine months or at one day.

      • Els

        Pro-choice is based and held acceptable from Margaret Sanger, the founder of abortion. Her famous words are;

        “The most merciful thing that a family does to one of its infant members is to kill it.”

        “Birth control must lead ultimately to a cleaner race.”(Hitler, anyone?)

        “We should hire three or four colored ministers, preferably with social-service backgrounds, and with engaging personalities. The most successful educational approach to the Negro is through a religious appeal. We don't want the word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population. and the minister is the man who can straighten out that idea if it ever occurs to any of their more rebellious members.”

        I don't believe in abortion because it lacks integrity, and is a slippery slope to who should go and who should stay in this world.

      • http://brontosaurus.deviantart.com/ Brendan

        I have no previous knowledge of Sanger, and I don't know the context of the quote, but on face value I would disagree. I would define an 'infant' as a conscious, sentient young human up to around a year after birth. Abortion is no where near killing infants after they are born. As I stated in my post below, we are talking about from the embryo to the early fetal stages of development where the nervous system has barely developed.

        In response to your hitler quote, again I don't know the context of the quote but I assume he was referring to the sterilisation of in his eyes 'degenerate' races. Abortion has nothing to do with eugenics. It is simply giving the mother the right to abort the pregnancy in the early stages if her circumstances and state of mind are not ready, or for health reasons regarding the fetus. She is always free to have a baby in the future if she wishes, despite her genetic background. If he was for some reason talking about condoms (I doubt it) then I would agree with him. Condoms reduce the spread of STDs and HIV – there is no dispute about that.

        There is no slippery slope here in my opinion. Without any justification behind that statement you're just using scare tactics. It's just words. And why do the women who abort lack integrity? Give me your justification behind that statement.

      • Els

        I don't think that women who abort lack integrity. I think that abortion in itself lacks integrity because it sells something, but many women are the victims of it. There are countless women who have a guilty conscience of their abortion, with only years of professional counseling to help them. If society told us today that's it's ok to kill outside of the body, the half-sane people who did that would have a guilty conscience over it, no matter what people told them. It’s a lonely battle within oneself when they have done something only to realize later that, they can’t explain why, but they feel really bad about it for the rest of their life.

        Also, 3D ultrasounds have shown preborn children yawning as early as 15 weeks. But people dismiss it by saying it’s just reflexes. And then there are ultrasound pictures of facial expressions, with the same child making the same exact facial expression months after it’s been born.

        As far as the Hitler quote, Hitler didn’t say that, Sanger did. And I thought that that quote had a striking commonality with Hitler’s beliefs of the superior race.

        When it comes to Margaret Sanger, I suggest that you learn about her, and what she truly had to say about children in general. And we were made to believe that abortion has nothing to do with eugenics, but it does. Do you know that three fourths of abortion services are strategically placed in poverty areas?

        Abby Johnson was the employee of the year at Planned Parenthood in 2008. She never knew what went on behind closed doors. But one day, for whatever reason, the abortionist in her clinic did not make it to work, so another abortionist from another clinic, which was not part of planned parenthood, came in as a substitute. Johnson never witnessed an abortion, despite the fact that she worked there for eight years. The doctor wanted her to come in the back and help him with the ultrasound. Because planned parenthood wants to have more abortions in one day, they don’t use ultrasounds because they take longer. But for whatever reason, this abortionist wanted to use an ultrasound. Johnson was uneasy about going in the back room to do this, but she felt like she should help with the clinic that she was in charge of. So, she went in the room where they were going to perform the abortion. She had to hold the ultrasound, and, to her amazement, she saw a 12 week baby in the womb. She thought she would have seen nothing more than a blob, but she was surprised that the little body had already been so developed. Ten fingers, ten toes. Then she saw the cannula come on the screen. She tried to calm herself down by telling herself that the fetus doesn’t feel pain. The baby looked serene at first. Then, she saw the baby starting to kick and try to twist and turn away from the cannula. Then, the abortionist turned on the suction, and the tiny body started to twist and slowly disappeared into the cannula right in front of her eyes.

        I think this story is gross, but it’s reality. I think that, a horrible as it is, decent people should know that this is happening, and take a stand for those that can’t.

        As far as the government getting involved, I think that it has given so much money to Planned Parenthood because it wants to wipe out the poverty population. Women think that it’s all about their rights, but it’s so much more than that with the government. It has to do having an abortion procedure, and wiping out a child so that later the government doesn’t have to deal with worry about that child and put tax dollars into a life that would, in a lot of cases, be more of a burden to society than, let’s say a rich kid with parents who will spend tons of money on all kinds of necessities and things that are not necessities. I am a conservative, but I hope that I never look at a picture of an aborted fetus and say, “well, less tax dollars for me”. Because then I know that my belief in less taxes has become unethical. (The government has given hundreds of millions of dollars to Planned Parenthood, but that amount is probably not much compared to the amount of money it would spend on each child if the mother decided to keep it.)

        The reason why I became pro-life is because I got so sick of conservatives and liberals alike using their own jargon to sway people into their opinions. So, I decided to take one last look at an aborted fetus/blob, and decide if I was for or against it. So I looked up abortion images, and to my disgust, I saw aborted babies that you can hold with both hands, thrown away in the trash. I decided that, yes, abortion is a slippery slope to people deciding who should stay and who should go, and very quickly, my opinion of abortion was solidified.

      • Els

        I don't think that I'm using scare tactics, Brendan. I think that I am being a realist with what I've seen. I can't pretend that abortion doesn't strike me as something that's wrong.

      • http://brontosaurus.deviantart.com/ Brendan

        Thanks for your detailed and considered reply. It's obvious now that you have done a large amount of research into the subject and have taken the time to consider your position carefully. It's obvious that you're not regurgitating lines fed to you by the religious right, but actually considered the evidence. Bear in mind that you haven't convinced me yet, but I feel I need to do more research into the matter. You have definitely challenged me to be more about my own stance on the issue. Anyone who does that deserves a medal.

        On the issue of abortion clinics near poor areas, wouldn't that be because of deficient sex education and greater influence from fundamentalist Christian groups advocating abstinence over contraception? I also think you'll find that wealthier, educated couples tend to have less children due to a greater understanding of family planning (contraception), so by your reasoning perhaps intelligent people are in fact weeding themselves out of the gene pool?

      • Els

        Actually, you brought up a really good point. Some people do argue that intelligent people are weeding themselves out of the gene pool. There is a documentary, Demographic Winter, that talks about the point you've just made. Here's the URL to the website if you want to look it up:

        http://www.demographicwinter.c

        There's another website that I stumbled upon the other day that I thought would be interesting for you to watch.

        http://bloodmoneyfilm.com/

        As far as eugenics, when abortion groups takes donations, one can tell them what minority group they want them to spend the money on. The term is called minority focus. If you look up Planned Parenthood donors, you will see that many donors have given money with a minority focus note. The Ford Foundation gave $370,000 in 2010 with a minority focus of International people, Latin Americans, Indians, and “women of color”. The Helena Rubinstein Foundation gave over 2 million dollars over the years with a minority focus on
        “minorities”. The list goes on, it would be tiresome to read.

        Here's an example of Planned Parenthood and it's accepting money for the use of minority groups.

Even abortion doctors don't call the baby's head “the head” when they're taking it out, dismembered from it's body, from the mother's womb. They call it “A” because they try to hide from the truth of what they're doing. Wow, this is sad. I'm really sorry about your opinion.

        Pain by any other name is feels like the same thing. And what does the child feel? Pain. And what are the doctors doing? Murdering. And what is this preventing? A life.

  • dee

    At first I was really pissed off about the comments. I mean, they still piss me off and and I really worry about what kind of adult helmet-head will turn out to be, but then I just had to ask myself: Why would Rolling Stone as a pop star about Gays and Abortion? And why would they ask Justin Bieber, out of all pop stars? Any answer he would've given would've most likely been incendiary. It's not like I respect him or anything, but while most 16 year-olds do question their beliefs and who they are and all that goods stuff, how many people in his possee would actually encourage him to question or debate with him on issues of morality?

  • GIRL

    Rolling Stone admitted to misquoting him. Link: http://www.rollingstone.com/mu

    Due to an editing error, this story originally included an incomplete quote from Justin Bieber. The full quote, his response to whether abortions should be allowed in cases of rape, reads: “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.”

  • missmaudlin

    “by becoming a bigoted religious zealot intent on judging the lives of others. LOL”

    I don't know how this article would come across as being non-judgmental or not bigoted. And I think even if 'he formed his own ideas' as he got older but they still differed from yours you might still feel this way about Justin Bieber.

    I'm a Christian and frankly I'm more than aware that there are a lot of people out there who share very different views from mine, but I wouldn't maliciously attack someone and call them uninformed without trying to get an understanding of where they're coming from. Judging someone by soundbites is extremely unfair.

    • Tess

      Sharing a different opinion is fine. When that opinion DIRECTLY EFFECTS ANOTHER PERSON'S BODY and NEVER will effect YOUR body, then no, the opinion goes out the window. No one gets to tell me what I should do with my body or whatever fetus happens to be in there.

      • Shawnandteffie

        ha it's funny how people say dumb things. what if someone wanted to end your life and said those same words? You would hope the government would come to your aid, declareing that that person cannot, in fact, do as they please. See, the problem is, you're selfish: you want to live your life as you please and not deal with any responsibilites-even if after having sex you concieve you won't accept that your own actions were the cause for the child growing in you. Then you'll say no one will tell me what to do as you go to get your abortion, but more importantly, your child will never see daylight because you were too self-centered to realize you have an obligation to the child you created. You seem very closed minded, and I'm sorry you see protecting children as such a curse; perhaps becasue your own experiences led you to beleive that.

      • Els

        It's not your body that you're getting rid of. It's someone else's. And they are nestled in your womb, thinking that they're safe, but now a days, they're not. They are subject to what you think, and if you don't want them, too bad, they don't have a say.

  • Scott

    Great article that says the truth about anti-female fundie extremism.

    Especially relevant now that the Tea Party Theocrats are pushing legislation to allow hospitals to refuse postabortion medical care and to reclassify the murder of abortion clinic workers as “justifiable homicide.”

    This is the inevitable consequence of fundamentalist magical thinking run amok. Bieber is just parroting his parent, spreading more shame — the complete rape quote is even more horrific than the edited one, revealing absolutely no awareness of a woman as a sovereign human being like himself.

    The author is generous and accurate in pointing the finger @ the mom, though you'd hope that an international pop star, however sheltered, would be starting to think for himself by 16 — and if that is the case, this interview is even scarier.

    Bottom line: If you don't have a uterus, you don't have a valid word to say about this. And if men DID have uteri and bore children, you can bet that abortion would have been a holy sacrament since time began.

    Kudos, Mr. O'Connell, for getting that. And for having the guts to say it.

        “I'm sure the nonviable fetus living up in there will be really hurt by someone's decision to have a better life.”

        No, it will just be hurt when it's head is getting dismembered from it's body. If it already had legs and arms, then it has much smaller cells that sense pain.

        Right, because every abortion ever is a partial birth abortion.

        If you could see my face right now, I'd be rolling my eyes so hard.

      • Els

        I don't think you have researched how abortion works. The head is usually dismembered from the body when it is not a partial birth abortion. During partial birth abortion, which can happen just days before the child is to be born, the bottom of the neck is punctured in the back, and then everything inside of the head is sucked out. Inconvenient truth.

    justin bieber isn't the only one, just because he's in the public eye and has SOME authority over people does he get judged so harshly.

    i mean, he's 16, doesn't even have a high school degree.
    he's not some theorist with a degree in theology.

    But I think in the specific case of Justin Bieber, you're absolutely right.

    • rilez

      This whole world is, primarily, based on the views of their parents. Growing up, in the United States especially, your parents most likely surround you with people of the same political opinions. As hard as I've tried to disagree with my father, just to piss him off, and severe all ties… his conservative, Christian beliefs still seem to resonate in me with reason and logic even in my twenties. I agree with the fact that it “isn't his fault” but I disagree with the fact that it's a fault. The world is full of opinions, and commonly liberals (I'm lookin' at you Ryan O'connell) are the ones to point fingers about making judgements, when that finger pointed (this article) is a judgement in itself.

  • rilez

    I don't understand how opinions can be “goobery.” Beiber's views are just that: opinion. I go to a Christian college and many people here support abortions. Christianity isn't the problem, overtly judgmental people are.

    Wow. Yet another shit piece. I'm not a huge Bieber fan, but I have to come to his defense on this one, especially since you involved the kid's mom. You consider Pattie Mallette to be judgmental, yet you're on here spewing your own judgments about people you don't know or care to research. Bieber and his mom are religious, they have beliefs that may differ from yours, but that doesn't make them stupid and “uninformed”. I could call pro-choice activists “baby killers” and it would be no different from you saying that “pro-life people are creepy”.
    It's obvious that you didn't bother to Google “his psycho Evangelical mother”, because if you did, you would have discovered all of the shit she's been through, and why she turned to religion. But becoming a Christian isn't cool, right? When you get caught up with drugs, abuse, sex and depression, the way to be cool and “informed” is to keep doing drugs and having indiscriminate sex but to just involve art or music or hipster photography.
    Your attempt at a satirical look on Justin Bieber's morals is disappointing because your assumptions come from NO WHERE and your jokes are crude and bigoted. I really don't think Justin Bieber is the ignorant one here.

    “When you’re a 16-year-old, your beliefs are still very much a reflection of your parents because you haven’t experienced or lived enough to have formed your own.”

    Wait, i'm sorry, what? 100% sure you can have a mind of your own when you're 16 and I don't think he should take less responsibility for his opinions because of his age. Feel belittled by this as a 16 year old myself.

    I find it quite ironic that liberals will scream about being suppressed and downtrodden by “the right,” yet they are quick to be even worse. It's called we LIVE IN AMERICA. We have FREE SPEECH. Leave us, or deal with it!

    soooo much hate in this room – starting with the bitch who wrote the article. First, it's not about “politics” – it's about abortion. Second, if age 16 is fine to have sex, why is it too youg to have an opinion about it? Would you be saying that if a teen pop star was advertising for Planned Parenthood? Last, enough with the rape and incest exclusion – that's less than 1% of abortions, ending abortion will stop the 1.3 million innocent babies from being killed every day in the US it's time to call those girls who bring those rape babies into the world heroes. Someone will adopt them. Racially it's an abhorration – your legislation has now resulted in more black babies being born dead than alive – don't forget Planned Parenthood's racist roots…

      1.3 million every day? So that would be 474.5 million babies per year? This IS a big problem. More babies than the population of the whole United States are aborted each day!

    Wow.
    Just because you don't agree with his beliefs does mean he is wrong. Also, bringing his mother into this is just low.
    Justin is standing up for what he chooses to believe in the best he can at the moment. That is indeed admirable.

    You're sick to make fun of Christians. Justin Bieber was a gift from
    God.

      Hey you silly guy,
      Of course Justin Bieber was a gift to his mom. You know those crazy things that happen in life, and you know that they're just meant to be? Well, I guess this lady knew that she was carrying something special. And Justin Bieber cares about his fan base, because he cares about the most basic form of life. He earned my respect and the respect of many others. People now understand that there's more to his smile and happy go lucky attitude. It's the respect and integrity for life that he has that many pro-lifers share. Please, go up to his mom and tell her that what she was carrying was not special. Because, automatically, she would be right, and you would be wrong. It's just a mother's intuition.

      I'm sorry about your beliefs.

    Nothing disgusts me more than hearing a bunch of men argue about what I can and cannot do with my reporductive organs.
