The #1 Movie in America That’s Changing The Minds of People About Abortion

Peter Guirguis controversial, Video 35 Comments

The other day I was at a birthday party hanging out with my roommate from college, his wife, and his 1-year-old baby.

I don’t know how we got on the subject but we started talking about abortions.

Ultimately it came down to the age-old question: Are you pro-choice or are you pro-life?

My friend and his wife are pro-choice (by the way, they are dear friends of mine and I love them very much).

I have to point this out because there are some people who think that you can’t love others who have a different opinion than you on this subject.

So here were their reasons for being pro-choice:

1) They believe that a baby in the womb doesn’t become a baby until he/she is 6 weeks old.

2) In the case of rape it’s ok to abort the baby.

3) It’s a woman’s body and she should have a choice as to what she wants to do with the baby.

4) What if the mother’s life is in danger?

Here’s what I had to say about these four points:

1) A baby is alive at the time of conception and that life begins before birth (Biblical view on abortion).

2) The circumstances surrounding the conception of the baby do not justify the killing of an innocent life. If it isn’t okay to kill a person conceived in rape after they are born, then it isn’t okay to kill a person before they are born. (see point #1)

We shouldn’t murder an unborn baby because of the sin of the father.  The mother can give the baby up for adoption.

3)  A mom can’t just kill an innocent baby in her womb for whatever reason she sees fit.

4) If the mother’s life is in danger, the doctors will choose to save the mom’s life. In this blog post, we are only talking about elective abortion (i.e. when a mom has a choice to abort when her life is not in danger).

A Movie About Abortion Unlike Anything You’ve Ever Seen

The other day I came across a movie called180 and after I saw it, I knew I had to share it with you.

It compares abortion (the murder of babies) to something that you’ve probably never heard it compared to before.

I can’t recommend this movie enough!  It will challenge you to think about abortion in new ways and it will get you equipped to be on the right side of the argument.

It’s 30 minutes long and it’s 30 minutes of your time that are well-spent even if you are pro-choice.

If you can watch it now, then go for it and if you can’t, then watch it on your lunch break.

Once you’re done, share your thoughts on what you thought of the movie and whether you are pro-life or pro-choice.

  1. To let you know right up front, I believe abortion is wrong; it is murder. However, I also believe a woman has the right to choose. Sounds double-minded? Let me explain. A woman has the right to choose whether or not to abort the same as she has the right to choose whether or not to kill the baby after he or she is born. The same as she has the right to choose whether or not to kill her five year old. The same as she has the right to choose whether or not to have sex outside of marriage.
    To choose to do any of these things is sin, but that is our God-given right. He has given us free will; we have the right to choose right or wrong. In the Bible, He tells us we can choose life or death, but recommends that we choose life. He also promises blessings to us and our descendants if we choose life. (Deuteronomy 30:19-20)
    The only way we are going to overcome any sinful action is to convince people to change their mindsets, their hearts (repent). I commend Ray Comfort, Kirk Cameron and their whole group in the efforts to do just that. By the way, great video. It’s such a blessing to see people’s hearts melt when they hear the Truth.

    1. The only issue here Kaye is the word “right”. We actually don’t have rights to commit murder. There are consequences for someone who commits murder. They will either go to jail or they will suffer the death penalty for those states which allow it. However, the law in our country does not punish the murder of unborn babies and that is the problem. In fact, both you and I pay taxes to allow for women to have abortions (i.e. commit murder).

      I think what you were getting get is having the word “right” and “freedom of choice” be synonymous.

          1. Jesus did say,”Judge righteous judgment.” We will judge the angels and the world…. Can we not call sin sin and cry out for repentance with compassion for the perishing soul? We should never condemn people, but we sure should warn them of their self condemnation, right? I would warn my neighbor if I saw his house burning down wouldn’t you? We ultimately LOVE people by sharing the gospel (the TRUE gospel) with everyone urging them to repent of sin and turn to the living God, King Jesus! I’m sure Paul did not adhere to the seeker friendly movement of modern times, aka don’t talk about sin, sugar coat it and say it’s your choice. I want people saved and in our Masters glorious kingdom and that can’t happen if the church doesn’t preach the full counsel of God (this includes His stance on abortion). I’m new to this blogging so I hope I did it right.

            1. Yes Keeth, you sure did do it right! Thank you for your awesome comment, I couldn’t agree with you more. You sound like you also have a heart for evangelism, do you share your faith with others?

  2. The Bible is not clear that abortion, elective or otherwise, is a sin. In fact, the Bible treats a non-consensual abortion is purely a financial issue; the only outcome is to pay a fine. The Bible then goes on to note that damage to the mother is to be treated separately from any damage to the fetus, suggesting that, at least to the ancient Israelites, there was a clear spiritual distinction between an unborn child and the mother who carried him or her.

    Beyond that, very simply: I reject “The Bible Told Me So” as a valid reason for any legislative agenda in our country, full stop. You don’t get to make up what the Bible “says” and then use that as a justification for your personal biases being made into law any more than I do. So stop it.

  3. So many have no idea who Hitler was and what he’s done… That’s sad that history is not taught to our children… Many today are so brain washed by the abortion propaganda that they do not think it’s killing (killing of a bAby) or they consider that it is like killing a rat or a cockroach or parasite; just the same it was about killing Jews or Slavic- like they were still under Darwin’s evolution process- not people yet so they are entitled to be eradicated. A great movie! So much work in it! Thank you so much for defending LIFE.

    1. Thank you Valentina for your very insightful comment. You are right on the money, we have to educate our children about history or else they’re bound to repeat it. God bless you Valentina, and please, share this blog post on your social networks. You never know how God is going to use this movie to minister to someone.

  4. I am personally against abortion, which is to say that I would never have one myself. However, I am not going to condemn anyone who does do so. Why? Because it is NOT my right to judge. God is the only one who can do that… and God only called on me to love others. Therefore, I will continue to love anyone, regardless if they choose abortion or not, and I will leave the judgment to the only one who has that right – God.

  5. This video was great. I am pro-life and have always been. Not just because I am a follower of Jesus Christ I am pro-life but from other people and other experiences I have had in my life. I would like to say the following question and make the following points:

    What did the baby do to deserve to be murdered?
    If a pregnant woman is shot and killed the criminal is charged for two murders not just one, it would be the same baby is she had gotten an abortion so what justifies it?
    I also find it funny how pro-choice woman are saying things such as “Stay out of my womb” and “stay out of my bedroom” but then asking for the government to pay for abortions.

    I may only be 15 but you don’t have to be an adult to understand murder. Abortion doesn’t make you not a parent anymore, it makes you the parent of a dead baby.

    I also want to say the fact thought that God sees all sin the same. Every single one, and it is hard for us to comprehend but this is the way she sees it. So, being the sinner we all are we have no right to judge and point fingers at other people, we are here to love those who have made wrong choices.

    I am 15, I am a female, I am a follower of Christ, I am pro-life, I am saving myself for marriage, I stand for what God asks me to even if I am standing alone. Yes, we still do exist. 🙂

    1. Wow Madison, your comment just blew me away! The fact that you are a 15-year-old young woman who is a Christian, pro-life, and saving yourself for marriage is just so rare. You have such a great head on your shoulders and more importantly, you have the Holy Spirit inside of you that is helping you to make the right choices.

      As far as I’m concerned, you’re awesome woman of God! Keep up the great job that you’re doing in standing for the truth in Christ 🙂

      1. Thank you so much, that really made my day! 🙂 There is still people out there that are really trying to make a difference and truly be followers of Christ.

  6. You say, “In fact, throughout the New Testament, God regularly commands the
    Israelites to kill every man, woman and child in some village or another
    that they’ve been engaged in warfare with.” This is a completely false statement. This does not occur anywhere in the New Testament. For being someone who claims to be “well versed”, I suggest you actually read the New Testament before you start claiming to know what it contains.

      1. No problem Eric, thank you for setting us straight 🙂

        I’m not sure if you had a chance to take a look at the corrected link that I also sent because the first one that I shared with you wasn’t a link to the correct page. But either way the bottom line is that there are Bible verses that show that a baby in the womb is a life at the time of conception. So that’s why we are making the point that if it’s an actual life, then ending it is in fact considered killing.

        I’m not really interested in persuading you one way or another. Of course, you are welcome to keep the stance that you currently have. I was just merely sharing with you my point of view, where it is supported from in the Bible, and why some other Christians take the same view.

        I wish you all the best and I hope you have a great weekend Eric 🙂

  7. I am pro- choice. However that does not mean i personally would have an abortion. I feel as if it should be a woman’s choice to carry a pregnancy to term. It is my opinion that bureaucrats should not be the ones to decide when I procreate. If a woman is raped I do not feel as if she should be forced to carry a child unwillingly. If a mothers health is at risk, I do not feel like she should have be force to keep it.

    But this is just my opinion.

  9. I am a pro-life. I am a Bible following Christian. The reason, other then my faith, that persuades me to choose pro-life stance, is the evolutionary and scientific fact that when a woman conceives a child in her womb it is purely out of her womb not closed to giving birth. Some women can’t conceive at all even when they so much want to.

    Having said this, I know there are cases where a woman/girl can get raped and not just out of social stigma but also because of the feelings of anger and hate she may want to choose abortion. I think that is the most difficult of choices to make especially for such a bereaved person.

    But having watched the video, while in office, I just couldn’t think there can be any reason big enough to justify killing an innocent life who has not even seen beautiful world, the world though which is a gutter on one side, is also a testament of Hope and Glory of God.

    It just brought me to tears. It now makes me clear what pastors like Paul Washer meant by regeneration. A Christian who is regenerated as talked in 1 John 1,2 will see the issues not from the narrow lens of this exists in the Bible this does not. Smoking and pornography doesnt exist in the Bible too. So if I watch Pornography can I defend it by saying O Bible does not say anything about it. But wait, there is a scientific proof now that what damage a brain can go through when one is addicted to Pornography. Along with a release of one chemical that is associated with a pleasure scenario there is a second factor called reward system that a brain gets used to. Coming back to the Bible we then see what it means by Romans 12:1-2 along with many other verses. Under their enameled layers we find the hidden manna that talks about offering our Body, Mind, Soul, Spirit to this God of the Bible through Jesus the Awesome Christ. And the rewards of such an obedience. But on the layer we may not find much.

    In the links that Peter the moderator gave regarding on abortionfacts website I realise on the ground level the verses like Psalm 139 may not talk much but approach the same passage with “reverence” and “fear” of this LORD of the BIBLE, with prayerful attitude and you will see how Holy Spirit reveal those hidden meanings.
    “you knit me in my mothers womb” … PEOPLE, do you REALLY understand what it means by this.. Have you ever ever seen how a mother knits a wollen cloth. Dagnabit !! Ok what about Psalm 139:16.. Have you got any idea what is going on there.. If so do explain. couple this now with Psalm 139:1,2,3,4 (deliberate attempt to point four seperate verses to give emphasis). If I lay with a woman married to me or not God knew what I would be doing beforehand the choice I am going to make. The decision I am going to take. Likewise for the woman, who was raped or not. God knows the affliction that she might go through. He allows the process does not mean He approves the process. So afterwards if she wants to abort what right she got to do that. Wasn’t God allowed something in the limited existence of man.

    I have already written more I think I will shut up now.. There is more behind the veil then what seems obvious when it comes to Bible. Its a sham, how people who claim to be Christians do not seek the understanding in their prayers and want to interpret issues pertaining to life out of their limited thinking. Bible is the final answer to man’s quest for life, in the finality of things.

    1. I can’t tell you enough how much your comment touched my heart! Thank you so much for taking the time to share your heart with us and to also point out those beautiful Scriptures to explain your stance. I agree with you 100% especially because your view is biblically based and you use the Bible as the final authority in your life.

      Like you pointed out so well, people who claim to be Christians and are pro-life are interjecting their own view on the matter instead of looking to the Bible as the final authority. This should not be so.

      God bless you and I pray that God will put many people in your life for you to share the love of God with them 🙂

  10. I first saw this movie several months ago and was blown away about the simplicity of it. It challenges people to consider why they believe what they believe and then shows them the truth. I know this movie is being used as a tool to share the truth with pregnant women visiting abortion clinics.

  11. Different from others, I live in a country where majority of people are pro-life. But times are changing and more and more people commits abortion secretly because they thought its the only way. Abortion is murder, period. Again, different from other cultures, we view abortion as a crime and it is illegal.

    I watched 180 about a year ago and came across to it again last month. I have to agree with you that it was the first time someone compare abortion to something I never (too) thought possible. I keep on telling people about this video too. Aside from sharing this video, I am also in a look-out with good books on pro-life. There’s a book about a former pro-choice advocate who used to work at Planned Parenthood. She wrote a book called unPLANNED. Now she is a pro-life. Check out her book at http://booksforevangelism.org/category/resources/abortion/ . God bless!
