"180" Movie and Abortion

‘Remember now, that You have made me as clay; And would You turn me into dust again?
‘Did You not pour me out like milk And curdle me like cheese; Clothe me with skin and flesh, And knit me together with bones and sinews?
‘You have granted me life and lovingkindness; And Your care has preserved my spirit.
Job 10:9-12 NASB

In late September, a video that is just over 33 minutes was released online and in DVD form entitled "180" Movie. I have shared about it on my blog a number of times already, and I have given updates as well as listing ways that you could help promote it. There have now been more than 1 and 1/2 million views online by YouTube's counting method!

  Many DVDs have been distributed on college, university and high school campuses. Others have been sent by mail or have been handed out to various people around the U.S. and in other countries as well.   I gave some to waitresses, and had one each submitted to the library of the church I attend and the local public library.  I also gave some to other people including a neighbor who showed it to some co-workers.

What is so interesting or compelling about this documentary that it has taken the internet by storm and stirred up controversy? It compares the historical Holocaust with a modern day Holocaust -- namely abortion. It gives facts and then puts people in the position of imagining what they would do in a situation where they were told to do something that would cause the death of others during Hitler's day. Hitler was known to dehumanize Jews and the disabled, etc. Then the questioning turns to what people think about abortion. A number of people actually appear to do a "180" from being pro-abortion to pro-life during the course of the interviews with them.

The Gospel is also presented in this video, which encourages a person to think about whether they have broken God's commandments.   This may add to the controversy, but I find it to be the most important element. 

If you are interested in some background on the interviewer's interest in the subject of abortion, you can check the following link:

  Have you ever lied, stolen, lusted after someone or something that belongs to someone else?  If you have broken any of God's commandments and not believed in His Son , God is the Holy and Righteous Judge that will one day be faced. When you stand before God, will you be considered guilty? God made a way for you to be made right with Him...acquitted. He so loved the world that He sent His Son Jesus to die and take the punishment you deserve, so that if you confess your sin and turn from it and believe that Jesus died for your sin and that He rose from the dead conquering will become His child and be forgiven and have eternal life.

"Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because he has not believed in the name of God's one and only Son."
 John 3:18 NASB

Below is a video of how you can distribute "180" Movie to high schools.
