Justin Bieber Quote on Abortion: What He Really Said

First off, Justin Bieber is just a pop star. Not a politician, not a minister, not an evangelist. And he’s also just 16. So why is Rolling Stone speaking to this young man about the subject of abortion? His hair  style, what he wants to be when he grows up or if he really is dating Siena Gomez, those are topics that seem more Bieber worthy. But the legendary music magazine opted to discuss the hot button issue of abortion with the pop star.

“I really don’t believe in abortion,” Bieber said in the interview. “It’s like killing a baby.”  When asked about abortion in cases of rape he answered, “Um. Well, 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.”

But his unedited response was even more moderate with Rolling Stone clarifying that Beiber said, “Well, 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.”

But again, shouldn’t Justin Bieber just be talking about music, dancing and his hair?
