Poor Justin Bieber. When he's not the subject of a murder/castration plot or, worse, being mocked by James Franco, he's getting embarrassed by his mom, Pattie Mallette, who executive produced a pro-life film coming out soon. The movie, called Crescendo, will be screened at "pregnancy centers" around the country with the goal of raising $10 million. And, if you attend one of the screenings, you might just get lucky and see Mama Bieber herself; Mallette will appear at "some of these" screenings, according to Movie to Movement, the ridiculously named company that produced the film.

Mallette hopes her involvment 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."

Of course, Bieber probably isn't completely embarrassed by the move; after all, two years ago he went on the record as being pro-life ("I really don't believe in abortion. It's like killing a baby?"). Then again, in that same interview Bieber said "Whatever they have in Korea, that's bad" when asked about political parties, so we probably shouldn't put too much stock in his opinions on anything, not that any of us neccssarily were. Anyway, his mom's movie is out February 28th, in case you want to see it.
