Rolling Stone doesn’t seem like the most natural place for the articulation of a pro-life position, especially from a pop star. But, it just happened:
Teen heartthrob Justin Bieber has said that he does not believe in abortion, and that it equates to “killing a baby.” The singer’s comments come in a personal interview in Rolling Stone magazine, where he discusses various hot button topics such as premarital sex, and abortion in the case of incest and rape.
Bieber explained that he “doesn’t really believe in [abortion]. I think an embryo is a human. It’s like killing a baby.”
Rolling Stone then asks Bieber what about abortion in instances of rape or incest, to which Bieber responded, “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.”
The teen star has never been shy to express his religious views, and during the last MTV Video Music Awards he gave praise to God and Jesus.Speaking about his relationship with God, Bieber has explained: “I focus more on praying and talking to Him.”
