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." 

The film is scheduled for a release on February 28th, at a variety of events across the country. 

While we have some reservations about her film - it all sounds a little gimmicky - her son Justin Bieber is winning awards left, right and centre, and here he is accepting an award at the AMAs:
