|An Open Letter from Ray Comfort Regarding “180”
I‘m horrified by abortion. I’ve printed pro-life literature, spoken against it in pulpits and in my books, and I have held up pro-life signs. But when I’ve looked at what’s happened since Roe vs. Wade, I have felt discouraged. That is, up until now! I believe that God has placed something very special into our hands. In “180” we have a nation-changer.
But it's not enough to have a powerful video on abortion; to turn the tide we must get “180” into every home in America. To do so, we’ll need a comprehensive national advertising campaign including TV, radio, print and outdoor advertising—all pointing to the launch of “180” and the “180”movie.com website where anyone can view the video for free after September 26th. We will also have 2,000 workers give away 200,000 copies of the DVD at 100 of the top universities in the U.S. this fall. In 2009 we had 2,000 willing workers give away more than 200,000 copies of Charles Darwin’s Origin of Species—which had a special 50-page introduction that presented the argument for Intelligent Design and the Gospel. We did that in one day, without a hitch, so we are sure we can do this with the DVD. We also plan to contact every pro-life organization in the U.S. and offer “180” to them at $1 each, so that they can have a giveaway in their area, on the same day.
With the proper pre-launch promotion, we’re certain “180” will go viral soon after its release. However, the vast financial scope of those promotional plans is way beyond our current means. To create and execute the nationwide promotion and distribution campaign “180” truly deserves, it will take a tremendous amount of new resources. And even though the project before us is already much bigger than we are, we continue to plan beyond our projected resources and direct our pleas to God. We trust He will move His saints to support this project and all our work for His Kingdom. Please prayerfully consider partnering with us to make efforts like this saturation campaign a reality. We believe it can happen with the support of people like you.
I hope you know how much we value your participation and partnership; this ministry exists because of your prayers and generous support. We cannot say thank you enough. All we are, and all we do is a result of the grace of God manifested through you and therefore the fruit of this ministry is more yours than ours. It is a privilege for us to partner with you to spread the good news of the gospel. We covet your prayers, and are exceedingly thankful for the sacrifice of your financial support.
“180” has the potential to turn the tide in the fight against abortion. It’s no exaggeration to say that this video could change the direction of this nation and save millions of lives. Together, we can make it happen. If you share our passion for the unborn and unsaved, and you share our desire to spread the news of the life-saving message of “180”, please prayerfully consider partnering with us – we need your support today.

We also urge you to share this news with as many people as you can, as quickly as you can; we’ll need the support of thousands of people in order to make the national advertising campaign a reality.
There are many life-changing outreaches and opportunities continuing here throughout the coming months, all of which are made possible as God provides the necessary resources through each of you. Your gift supports all we do at Living Waters. May God continue to work through each of us, as we serve Him together, side-by-side.
God Bless You,
Founder & CEO
P.S. - Abortion is a massive money-making opportunity for those who are willing to kill millions of children each year at a rate of about one child every 27 seconds – (world-wide, a child is killed every second!) We know it’s going to be a very real battle—pro-abortion forces across the globe have already begun to come against us and “180” – but this issue is a hill to die on! We must do everything we can to stop this terrible holocaust. No doubt many good Germans, who spoke up for the Jews in the 2nd World War, lost their lives doing so. We have no such fear in this country, particularly if we let this video speak up for us. Together, we can turn the tide in the fight against abortion and end this American holocaust!
