Pattie Mallette - A host of stars were snapped as they arrived for Comedy Central's Roast Of Canadian pop star Justin Bieber. The roast was held at Sony Studios in Los Angeles, California, United States - Saturday 14th March 2015
Justin Bieber's Mom, Pattie Mallete, has been involved in the making of a short movie that pushes anti-abortion views. The Chicago Sun Times has reported that his mother's film makes Justin Bieber very uncomfortable.
A source speaking to the Sun Times told them that Bieber is uncomfortable in general about political causes, "especially ones like abortion that are very divisive," they said. "He's all about entertaining his fans with his music and not interested in pushing a political agenda. ... Furthermore, I don't believe he agrees with his mom on this issue."
While Bieber may disagree with his mom's views, in many respects he owes his life to the views she holds, given that she became pregnant during her teens after abuse and drug problems, for many abortion may seem the 'easy way out'.

It is well known that whiter than white, squeaky clean Justin Bieber's upbringing was strongly Christian and that much of the encouragement he got for his musical talent came from his involvement in his church, so for his mother, Pattie Mallette, to produce a new pro-life short film with a strong anti-abortion message is not surprising.
The film, titled 'Crescendo' has a goal of raising $10m for pregnancy centres across the country (it's unclear whether that's her native Canada or the USA). Mallette herself was faced with a pregnancy in her teens, which was one outcome of addiction and abuse. She decided to keep the baby and that baby is Justin Bieber. Soon after giving birth she converted to Christianity and the film reflects their beliefs about abortion.
Speaking to Cinema Blend Mallette said she hopes the film will "encourage young women all over the world, just like me, to let them know that there is a place to go, 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."
Justin isn’t the only Bieber making headlines anymore.
The pop star’s mother, Pattie Mallette, has produced an anti-abortion short film, entitled Crescendo, which is intended to raise $6.3 million for anti-abortion campaigns. After the release of the film, Pattie will go on tour, showing the films at hospital events in order to raise awareness of the topic. Abortion and abortion rights are, of course a hot topic in the US, and one which has been used by both sides of the political spectrum to raise support.
The film creator’s stance on the issue, however, seems to have less of a political lean, and more of a personal one, considering Mallette’s personal history of addiction and abuse. In a statement, quoted by Entertainmentwise, she explained that she hopes that the film will “encourage young women all over the world, just like me, to let them know that there is a place to go, 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."
