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.

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."
