LOS ANGELES, CA – Justin Bieber weighs in on US health care and abortion.
In his 16 years of existence the pop star, Justin Bieber has amassed a vast deal of knowledge regarding the finer inner workings of U.S. health care and healthcare reform. So much in fact that U.S. Representative, Christopher Murphy, D-CT had taken to getting advice from the music icon and political mastermind.
“The Biebs and I had been going back and forth for a while regarding how to deal with issues revolving around the U.S. health care system. He continually tried to push a Canadian style system of social health care. But I had to keep reminding him that socialism does not fly in the U.S.…Canadians,” said Murphy as he shook his head in a recent interview.
However, recently a rift has developed between the Biebs and Representative Murphy when the Biebs offered up his opinion of the U.S. health care system in a recent interview, calling it “evil” for placing immense amounts of medical debt on those who need help the most. In addition to his views on U.S. health care, the Biebs also announced his feelings on abortion.
“I really don’t believe in abortion. It’s like killing a baby.” said Justin.
It is not hard to understand the Biebs’ position, considering that just 16 years ago the Biebs almost suffered the same fate himself. Justin revealed in the same interview that his mother, who at the time of his birth was only 17 years old, had considered aborting him until she received a sign from God that changed her mind.
Bieber’s statements came as a complete shock to Murphy. Shortly after the news broke, Murphy quickly tweeted, “Oh wait … just heard what Biebs said about abortion. Ugh”
The end of the relationship between the Biebs and Murphy may be a blessing in disguise for the Connecticut Representative, as many have questioned the representative’s tactics.
“Which voters are Chris Murphy trying to reach now, 14-year-old girls?” said Chris Healy, Connecticut Republican Party Chairman, “It’s amazing what some politicians will do to try to tell the pubic, ‘Hey, I’m cool, I’m paying attention to the zeitgeist.’ It’s kind of funny how it blows up in your face.”
