200,000 Copies of “180” Given Away at 100 Universities
A small army of one thousand volunteers gave away 200,000 copies of the new movie “180” earlier this week. They were stationed at the top 100 universities around the country to hand out as many as DVDs possible in one day. To avoid opposition, the date and the location of each of the universities were a highly-guarded secret.
The controversial video shows eight people who are adamantly pro-abortion, changing their minds and becoming pro-life in a matter of seconds, because they were asked a specific series of questions. Within the first month online via http://www.180movie.com/ and YouTube, the film registered 1.2 million views, stirred up a hornet’s nest of more than 19,000 comments, and has been called “The Hottest Movie on the Internet.”
The film’s producer, Ray Comfort, said, “People can’t get enough of this because it’s changing minds about the hot-button issue of abortion. It’s not only being watched online, people are buying it to give away. We have sold more than 150,000 copies in a matter of weeks. One small church purchased 16,800 movies to distribute. But this week’s university giveaway was very special because it put the physical DVD into the hands of the youth of America, and engaged many in healthy dialogue.”
Tony Miano, the coordinator of the massive giveaway said, “Emails have been pouring in from students around the country, who not only took the DVD, but took the time to watch it.”
Comfort added, “I am so thankful that people are open to change. While there are some who are very angry at us for making this movie, others are very thankful and write to tell us their story.”
Comfort concluded, “I will not rest as long as the horror of killing babies is a legal reality in our nation. But political change will only come if those who care about the unborn speak up. We created the ‘180 Course’ to help those who care, confidentially talk about the subject in a way that makes sense. Anyone can change someone’s mind about abortion as I did on ‘180,’ if they have a loving heart and if they are willing to learn a few simple principles.” The best-selling author, Comfort wrote the “180 Course” with contributions from well respected Christian leaders, Randy Alcorn and Kay Arthur.
