The evangelist producer of an online documentary to be released this Sunday has high hopes that the film, which shows eight pro-abortion young adults change their stance to pro-life just moments after being asked a question,

They could at least make sure they have the bandwidth, damn video won’t start.

Funny thing is the only reason I want to watch it is to find out what the question is...

Ahem ... from the article:

The 33-minute documentary called “180” is produced by Ray Comfort and his ministry, Living Waters. Even after watching the film’s trailer on its website, viewers are left with no clues as to what question was asked or what exactly prompted eight people to change their views on abortion.

Sorry, but you're going to have to make a tax deductible donation to peek inside the pot ...

Yeah.....I noticed that, too. Guess you have to pay if you want to find out what the question is. Rubbish.

Any relation to Monty Python’s deadliest joke in the world?

Probably something to the effect of should their mothers have had an abortion or, more likely, should Stanley Ann Dunham have. Something personal.

WOW, What a movie! Thank you for sharing.

The only thing I did not agree with was that Hitler sold the war as a Christian war to the German people. About 3 years ago I was in Germany and having dinner with an old man and his family. He had been in Hitler’s army on a panzer tank crew. His older sisters, who had gathered around the table, were singing beautiful Christian hymns in German. This old man suddenly burst into tears as he told us that they were singing the same hymn he sang during his induction ceremony into Hitler’s army. He went on to explain that Hitler sold the war to the German people as a Christian war against the Jews who killed Jesus. Hitler taught vengeance over forgiveness.

I thought this was about abortion, what is up with the Hitler stuff? And why do I want to cry that so many young adults are morons and don’t know who Hitler is.

I’m thinking so. Half way through and only seeing bunch of idiots who don’t know who Hitler is, and other Neo-Nazis.

Can’t sit through 15 minutes of same thing over and over to find something to do with abortion?

No. I went to the site, and watched the movie, without donating. I clicked and watched, with no problem.

It was powerful and I was impressed with the young people who talked with Ray. I’m sure it wasn’t easy to find people who were honest enough to admit they didn’t have all the answers to every question.

I also would not just come out and say what the question was. If you want to know, watch the movie. :)

Hey DPS...if your “goods” can expose the ignorance of youth who champion abortion I’ll be happy to see your site...or if your “goods” can turn a mind around from killing an unborn child.... sure...I’ll be all for them letting you post your site.

It’s produced by Living Waters, which is a nonprofit organization. It’s a church, selling a sermon, nothing more.

Let us see the funds raised and how they are dispensed... if this be a total charity issue, I have no problem, if anyone monetarily profits from this, that’s where I have a problem. This advertisement is billed like an infomercial, which in itself, I find detestable.

“It was powerful and I was impressed with the young people who talked with Ray. I’m sure it wasn’t easy to find people who were honest enough to admit they didn’t have all the answers to every question.”

It was very good. I also watched the entire documentary. He actually uses a series of questions enabling those interviewed to begin to think logically about evil, particularly the evil of abortion. This could be considered akin to the Socratic method of teaching. It works very well.

Turn 180 Degrees on Abortion Stance in Seconds?

I did. The minute I held my newborn son.

I'll likely skip the movie. Don't need affirmation on what I know to be right.

If you watched it last week, you only saw a preview...the full movie wasn’t released until last night...try watching it first, because (no offense) you have no idea what you’re talking about.

This is the most ignorant group of postings I've ever seen on FR.

The movie is free, no one makes you watch anything, and he gives some good talking points if you are pro life.

It is not an infomercial to raise money. If you want to give,...give,.....if not, don't.

I have used the same tactics myself using the Dred Scott decision. Dred Scott was considered not human so he was treated like property. When the government takes your humanity away, they can kill you. When Terri Schiavo was declared "non human", a probate court was able to decide that she should die, without being found guilty of any crime. A judge that usually decides who gets the silverware, decided she should die. We have failed to agree that a fetus is human, so it' gets no human rights. When the government decides you are too old, too white, too sick, too wasteful of a carbon foot print, you too can be denied your human right to live.

I figured FR would be the sympathetic place for this movie, but I must have misjudged. Reading the responses, it's frankly an eye opener about FR.

No offense, but when it’s billed like an infomercial, that in itself offends me... now as the merits of the movie, I have never critiqued. It may well be as you say, and when I have time I’m sure I will watch it.

There is a long set-up, that establishes that human life has value (using Hitler). The video compares the unborn to the Jews. It establishes that even though it was “legal” killing Jews was morally wrong. The participants in the video generally agree that the holocaust was evil and wrong.

After the set-up the key question is:

Under what circumstances is it OK to kill a baby in the womb?

Thank you for posting the link, steadcom. I watched it and it is brilliant. Essentially the parallel moral question of “did Hitler have the right to kill Jews” vs. “does someone have the right to kill a baby in the womb” makes so much logical sense... Great post!

Stunning. ALL Freepers should watch this; ALL Americans should watch this. What you do with the material is entirely up to you.
