An effort to raise $10 million
for crisis pregnancy centres around the world has just received a major boost from a celebrity who knows personally the good work that the pregnancy centers do: Pattie Mallette, better known as Justin Bieber’s mom.
Mallette has been vocal about the trauma, abuse and addiction that marked her early childhood and adult years. When she found herself pregnant with Justin, she was pressured to abort, but she rejected that pressure and turned to a crisis pregnancy center instead.
“I just knew I couldn’t. I just knew I couldn’t. I just knew I had to keep him,” Mallette told Kathie Lee Gifford last year. “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.”
Mallette says the pregnancy center she turned to literally “saved their lives.”
