Teenage pop sensation Justin Bieber surprised the world this week by saying he opposes abortion and calling it the “killing” of a “baby.” His pro-life views are drawing accolades from pro-life groups.
Justin Bieber’s comments about abortion are not surprising given how the youth of Bieber’s generation have grown up entirely under the threat of abortion. Justin’s friends have lost brothers and sisters to abortion — loved ones who should have been there growing up with them and experiencing all life has to offer — had their lives not been snuffed out for convenience.
In a world where 3-D and 4-D ultrasounds have become the very first baby pictures, that Bieber would recognize abortion is “killing a baby” makes plenty of sense to Bryan Kemper of the pro-life youth group Stand True.
“I became a fan of Justin Bieber and especially a fan of his courage and will be praying for him,” Kemper said of his reaction to the news. “I hope all of you will take the time to pray for Justin, pray that he will be a true man of conviction and stand by his statement.”
“Pray that this time the influence of a teen idol will help young girls make the right decision and that lives will be saved,” Kemper continued. “Justin, I give you mad props for being willing to voice your opinion and speak the truth. Don’t back down.”
Lila Rose of Live Action also knows something about exposing abortion and the killing of babies involved in it and she, too, celebrated Bieber’s pro-life statement.
“We are so proud of Justin for saying it like it is. Abortion is killing a baby, plain and simple and is the greatest human rights abuse in our nation today,” she said. “The bottom line is that young people get it and they want every person’s life to be protected, including those who are defenseless and unborn. The latest Gallup polls show us that the growing majority of young adults identify themselves as pro-life, and like Justin are having more courage than ever to stand up for life. We encourage all of his fans to spread the pro-life Bieber Fever.”
LifeNews.com, along with Stand True, Survivors, Live Action, and Lifesite, are promoting a new Facebook Page called “I Love Justin Bieber’s Pro-Life Views” that allows Bieber fans and others to put their own comments online supporting Bieber’s and his public position against abortion.

I know that you hear this all the time, but I am a huge fan of yours, especially since reading your interview with Rolling Stone.
I loved how you defended the unborn by saying that abortion is killing babies. I am glad that the media is taking notice of your brave response, since you are speaking on behalf of the majority of kids our age in the US.
I have always admired your artistic talent, however, the fact that you took a stand against abortion is by far the most admirable thing a man can do. What you said might not have seemed like a big deal to you, but in the fight against abortion, this is bigger than you can imagine. It meant a lot to me, personally. You are a true role model and I applaud you on your stand. Thank you for your courage.
I love you Justin!
