The 180 Movie has no doubt changed the minds of many Americans on the issue of abortion and it very likely has resulted in saving the lives of unborn children who may have been scheduled for abortions. Now, the producers of the popular film have confirmation that’s happened.

On Friday, the producers of the documentary sent out this update about a story their received regarding the impact of the 180 film:

This just in! We’ve received word that another unborn baby has been saved as a result of an expectant mother and her boyfriend watching “180.” The couple is no longer pro-choice because of the compelling arguments made in “180.” And once again, the Lord has used Alicia, who is interviewed in “180,” to help change people’s hearts.

Here’s the story:

“Just wanted to share with you that a young girl (20 years old) I work with announced that she was pregnant and was a little worried about my reaction once she told me. Probably because I’m an assistant pastor at a local church. I wasn’t upset with her, but rather more surprised that she was pregnant when she had told me previously that she broke up with her boyfriend, [then to] learn he’s the father.

“Well, they both saw this movie and are both firmly convicted about not having an abortion. She kept saying the blonde girl in the film really brought it home for her, to really understand that it was wrong to murder a child like that. [The young girl] recently had an ultrasound and heard her baby’s heartbeat too and she’s committed to delivering this baby, and that she and her boyfriend will raise the child together. Thank you for making this compelling film and what it has done to change the hearts and minds of many people, especially the power of the Gospel that makes all the difference, for time and for eternity.”

The documentary has seen over 1.5 million views on YouTube and hundreds of thousands of copies of the pro-life film have been distributed on DVD to people across the country and around the world.

A free DVD of the award-winning viral movie “180″ may be coming to a high school near you as the promoters of the film follow up on their successful distribution of 200,000 copies of the movie to college and university campuses.

Ray Comfort, the creator of the documentary says it has been so popular “because it’s ‘shocking.’ It opens with 14 people (mainly college students) who have no idea of the identity of Adolf Hitler.”

“One reviewer said, ‘So, what’s a pretty good documentary could have been even stronger without the fools early on,’” Comfort said. “Perhaps those who are quick to call these students fools lack perception themselves. These young people are rather ignorant as to perhaps the darkest period of human history, because the American education system has failed them.”

Late last month, between 180,000 and 200,000 copies of the 33-minute DVD were given out at 100 of America’s top universities, and now the Jewish author and TV co-host is turning his attention to high schools.
