Rolling Stone clarifies Justin Bieber abortion quote, rendering a moderate opinion even more moderate

Posted on

Image Credit: Mike Marsland/WireImage.comOn Wednesday, Rolling Stone posted an excerpt of their Justin Bieber interview online. The excerpt included a quote from Bieber discussing the fact that he doesn’t believe in abortion. When asked if he believed in terminating pregnancies in cases of rape, the pop star responded, “Well, I think that’s really sad, but everything happens for a reason. I guess I haven’t been in that position, so I wouldn’t be able to judge that.” Today, Rolling Stone corrected the quote slightly, adding in a sentence:

“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.”

Moderate opinions, reasoned responses, a precocious ability to admit to cognitive limitations… PopWatchers, what’s the matter with these kids today?
