Movie '180' Turning Hearts against Abortion

Ad Feedback

ROCKVILLE, Md. -- The new pro-life documentary "180" is gaining national attention with its message that compares abortion to Hitler and the Holocaust.

Christian TV star and street evangelist Ray Comfort said he felt pro-choice advocates needed a radical message.

He found he could turn pro-choice people away from supporting abortion when he made them realize they were treating unborn babies like Nazi Germany treated the Jews and mass-murdered them.

The production has received more than a million views online. Supporters have also started passing the DVD out on college campuses across the country.

"We're out here to pass out the '180' DVDs to hopefully change students' minds about abortion," Open Air Campaigners director Tom Fox told CBN News in Maryland.

Eric Briscoe, a member of Open Air Campaigners, said he takes the battle against abortion personally. He has three adopted children.

"They all came from wombs where abortions had taken place previously," Briscoe said. "So, I look at three of my kids and I say, 'They were the ones who made it, but there should be others there that at least they could call brother and sister.'"

The "180" documentary isn't the only project using the Internet in opposing abortion and uniting pro-lifers.

Filmmaker Jason Jones, who produced the pro-life film "Bella," was moved when he met a man who'd decided to give up chocolate as a way to fast against legalized abortion.

Jones then started the initiative "Until Abortion Ends" to encourage others to give up something in their lives until abortion ends, which sparked a debate.

"I'm rather impressed with all of the young men and women -- particularly the young men -- who think they can sway women's choices about their bodies and their families simply by making meaningless gestures like giving up junk food," a woman calling herself "Erin" said in a YouTube video.

"The point isn't what we're giving up, but it's the fact that we're giving something up. That's what matters," pro-life student Jennie Stone responded in a video.

"Each time we feel the desire to have what we gave up, we'll remember why we gave it up in the first place, and it reminds us to act on our pro-life convictions," Stone added.

Despite the opposition, pro-lifers are promising to continue their fight against abortion with DVDs, Youtube videos, websites and whatever else it takes.
