Justin Bieber, abortion and the millennial generation

In a new interview with Rolling Stone, 16-year-old Justin Bieber, who was born to a single teen mom, says: "I really don't believe in abortion. It's like killing a baby?"

Scott Fischbach, who heads the pro-life group Minnesota Citizens Concerned for Life, had speculated before today's interview went public that Bieber may be pro-life because so many millennials are pro-life based on abortion's consequences and seeing ultrasound images.

"Honest and frank talk from Justin Bieber about life issues is awesome and will hopefully encourage more young people to join the cause of life," he told "Poll after poll show that younger people are pro-life and now Bieber joins those majority ranks. Gone are the days when pro-life artists and performers needed to hide or keep their pro-life views out of the public."

"Years ago when Madonna released 'Papa Don't Preach,' it touched off a wave of pro-life sentiment as the lyrics boldly proclaimed, "I am keeping my baby." Hopefully Bieber's honest comments about how abortions kill babies will do the same. Pro-lifers can be proud to have another supporter like Justin Bieber," he added.
