Canadian pop sensation Justin Bieber's mother, Patti Mallette, is pro-life. Patti has often spoken about how she decided against abortion at 17 while she was pregnant with Bieber, despite many forcing her to do so.
Now, taking her fight against abortion to another level, Patti announced that she is producing an anti-abortion film that will be out soon. She will serve as the executive producer of the film, which is titled "Crescendo".
The short film will do the rounds of various film festivals and Patti and other producers hope to raise $10 million to aid pregnancy centers.

The aim of the film, Patti told the Associated Press, is to "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."
This is Patti's second attempt to reach out to young pregnant girls who are considering abortion. Last year, she released a book titled "Nowhere but Up: The Story of Bieber's Mom" where she detailed her teenage pregnancy, substance abuse and sexual exploitation.
She has blamed these factors for her teenage pregnancy while still in high school. But even then, abortion was never an option, she told the "Today Show" late last year. "I just knew I couldn't. I just know I had to keep him. I didn't know how I was going to do it. But I just knew that I couldn't abort. I had to do my best, and I was determined to do whatever it took."
