180 The Movie
This film may be one of the most gut-wrenching movies we’ve ever featured in our ongoing Life on Film series.
We have a special presentation lined up on Sunday, April 2 at 8:00 pm of 180 The Movie, an award-winning documentary that’s both eye-opening, powerful, and brutal.
The 180 documentary follows the film’s star and writer, Ray Comfort, as he interviews everyday people on the street about abortion.
This film gives us hope to see how quickly people can change their minds when they’re presented with different perspectives and they’re forced to think through the logic of their pro-abortion views.
This movie might make some people feel uncomfortable. The first 13 minutes or so are tough, but it’s laying the groundwork for the bigger picture.
The film draws comparisons between the Holocaust and abortion, and I know there’s some level of controversy about this topic in the pro-life movement.
There’s also graphic footage in the documentary of Holocaust victims, which some viewers will find disturbing, so I wouldn’t advise that you watch this around young children.
One other advisory to the parents reading this: the film is quite raw and includes some very upsetting commentary from the people Ray interviews.
With that said, there’s a powerful message in this film about the value of life – and about how abortion is offensive in the eyes of God …
Which is a reminder about why we must stand firm in our convictions when it comes to defending human life – from the moment of conception until natural death – because we never know when God will use our efforts to cut through someone’s spiritual blindness to the Truth.
CLCY’s Maeve Roche and Kim Headley will have a discussion about the 180 film after the screening. They’ll cover the controversial aspects of the movie and reveal some useful pro-life apologetics that can help you out if you ever find yourself in a debate about abortion.
