Justin Bieber: “Abortion is Like Killing A Baby”


From Rolling Stone’s website, an extract of an interview with Justin Bieber by Vanessa Grigoriadis:

He isn’t sure what political party he’d support if he was old enough to vote. “I’m not sure about the parties,” Bieber says. “But whatever they have in Korea, that’s bad.” He does have a solid opinion on abortion. “I really don’t believe in abortion,” Bieber says. “It’s like killing a baby.” How about in cases of rape? “Um. Well, I think that’s really sad, but everything happens for a reason. I don’t know how that would be a reason. I guess I haven’t been in that position, so I wouldn’t be able to judge that.”

Shall we study this? An almost 17 year old (March 1st) who travels around the world–“whatever they have in Korea.” Missing his education seems to have been a problem. Now we’d like to ask him if he understands what’s happened in China.

He has no compassion for a rape victim who becomes pregnant. “…everything happens for a reason.”

Here’s the thing: he could have said that he didn’t believe in abortion, and that he couldn’t judge of cases of rape. He could have been more prepared on the subject of politics. But he wasn’t prepared for a professional interview, and this is the result.

What about the fact that he’s a kid, why not just leave him alone? The answer is that he wanted to be on the world stage, he wanted to be a celebrity, and that the world has rewarded him with millions and millions of dollars to leave school and be in our faces 24/7.

On the plus side, Justin Bieber may be a popular campaigner for the next Republican presidential candidate. They will have never had one so popular with the non-voting under agers.

Also on the website: Justin does not believe in pre-marital sex, and thinks America “is evil” because of its health care policies.

The full interview appears on Friday in Rolling Stone.
