Pattie Mallette is more than just the mother of internationally renowned superstar Justin Bieber. She's also a film producer -- remember?
Mallette made headlines back in early 2013 when it was reported that she had served as executive producer on a short film titled "Crescendo." Why was this controversial? Well, depending on where your politics lie, you'd probably either classify the film's message as anti-abortion or pro-life.
SPOILER ALERT, but the period piece revolves around a pregnant young woman who seeks to induce a miscarriage using a particular tea she acquires from an apothecary. Her efforts are in vain, and she is forced to give birth to a baby boy.
And do you know who that baby boy grew up to be?
Justin Bieber Ludwig van Beethoven.
Yeah, we never said it was subtle.
