180Movie.com Appreciates Your Help

Picture of my baby, “Kate Audrey Martin” born Yesterday.

Opening Thoughts: As I reflect over the events of the past week and a half since the launch of 180 Movie, I cannot help but see the powerful hand of God at work through this project. My job with this amazing pro-life movie is to oversee and manage the social media reach. This has been both tasking and rewarding, a job I could never have accomplished without all of your help and efforts. In the past 10 days the 180 YouTube video has been shared 130,000 times on Facebook alone. I have been blown away by the random people who have come up to me after seeing that I had the 180 Facebook page open, and say, “Someone shared that movie with me on Facebook and I loved it, and have now shared it with all my friends!”  Praise the Lord for Facebook and all of you who have rallied behind this amazing movie.

The Twist: Another unique twist in this story is that the day after the 180 Movie was released, my wife and I started having pregnancy issues in our 34th week. So for the past week grandma has been looking after our other 2 children as my wife and I have been battling for the safety of our newest own unborn child. Yesterday my wife gave birth to a beautiful baby girl named “Kate Audrey Martin”. She is a month early, weighs 5 lbs 8 ounces, and is committed to an incubator for the next couple weeks due to low sugar. As I stared into the eyes of our precious little baby, I was reminded of the thousands of babies that would lose their lives this very same day through the horror of abortion. In an effort to end these atrocities please join us in continuing to spread the 180 message to the entire world. Thanks for your help and support. God Bless.

SUBJECT: Pro-life movie goes viral—more than half a million views in just over one week

“180” is a 33-minute award-winning video that shows eight people who are adamantly pro-abortion, changing their minds and becoming pro-life…in seconds, because they were asked one question.

It has also had more than 9,000 YouTube comments. Here are some comments from different sources:

  • “Your film just led a 17 year old girl away from abortion.”
  • “From someone that been Pro-choice this video changed my view on life completely.”
  • “I was always pro-choice and now i am pro-life after watching such a powerful video.”
  • “It changed my mind and made me aware that I’ve got to make a stand on this issue.”

This one is from Facebook: “My husband and I have always disagreed about the right to life for the unborn. After watching 180 today he has had a change of heart and now wants to protect children in the womb. Thank you for this amazing gift.”

“180” has been commended by Kay Arthur, Joni Eareckson Tada, Kirk Cameron, Francis Chan, and many other Christian leaders.

John Piper tweeted, “For the cause of truth and the unborn, with no utopian illusions, I hope millions see this.”

Mark Hall (Casting Crowns) said on Facebook, “This short documentary has totally rocked my world this week. PLEASE check it out…I dare you to watch 180.”

P.s. A couple more stories:

“I’m not a fan of Ray Comfort, but I have to hand it to him, he did a great job putting this video together. As a pro-life Atheist,  I was afraid this video was going to be arguing against abortion using Christian rhetoric once again…good job Ray, and as a pro-life Atheist — I support this video!”

“I am a Witch but am prolife and have always been. I have no desire to share the Gospel part of this but some of it seemed pretty interesting.”
