Pattie Mallette, Justin Bieber’s mom, wants to bring her pro-life documentary Crescendo to theatres. The short film is directed by Alonso Alvarez and stars actress Ali Landry.
The documentary is geared toward pregnant women who feel like they have no where else to turn, says Malette. Pattie herself came forth in her memoir Nowhere but Up: The Story of Justin Bieber’s Mom, revealing that when she was pregant with Beiber, she felt helpless and pressured to abort.
She is endorsing Crescendo screenings in an effort to fundraise for pregnancy centres worldwide.
Bieber has also come forth with pro-life statments in the past. The young star previously told the Rolling Stone that he believes an unborn baby is human, When the publication asked him about the circumstance of rape, he responded “Um. Well, I think that’s really sad, but everything happens for a reason. I guess I haven’t been in that position, so I wouldn’t be able to judge that.”
However, the publication made a series of edits that were questioned, so we don’t know how much of Bieber’s comments were taken out of context. Regardless, Bieber still remains adamant that abortion is not the answer. This is something that Beiber and his mom clearly have in common.
Crescendo will be screened at 100 location on Feb. 28. The proceeds of the film will go to centers that help women and their children.
