Justin Bieber's mom makes a pro-life film

Canadian singer Justin Bieber, the dancing and rapping teenaged superstar of the moment is accustomed to the glare of klieg lights and paparazzi attention. But it is now the turn of his mother, Pattie Mallette, to gain some celebrity as she embarks as executive producer on making a short film intended to raise money for emergency pregnancy centers in the United States. The film, called 'Crescendo', is due to get 100 screenings on February 28.

Mallette, who became pregnant with her son Justin at the age of 17, wrote in her book "Nowhere But Up' said that she had refused an abortion despite being pressured to have on. "I knew that I had to do what it took...I just couldn't abort him."

Mallette (37) declared in a statement 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.”



Spero News editor Martin Barillas is a former US diplomat, who also worked as a democracy advocate and election observer in Latin America. He is also a freelance translator.
