Pop star Justin Bieber should be commended for his recent statements about abortion and sex in Rolling Stone Magazine. In an age when young people have very few positive role models, Bieber stands apart. When asked for his views on premarital sex, he said “you should wait until you’re in love.” In the same interview, he also denounced abortion.
While he has been criticized for being naïve and uninformed, we at the World Youth Alliance believe he should be applauded for speaking out on issues that affect and influence the lives of young people. Bieber’s statements point to the importance of making responsible decisions and developing self-control. The World Youth Alliance and our one million members thank him for taking this stand.
