In a time of universal deceit, telling the truth is a revolutionary act. – George Orwell

Yesterday I watched what could potentially be the most influential documentary of the 21st century – if not the last few decades. If the people of the world truly get what is happening around us every day and realise how apathetic we stand towards modern day genocide, the implications could be phenomenal. The message is short, simple and a wake-up call to reality.

What others are saying:

“This short documentary has totally rocked my world this week. PLEASE check it out…I dare you to watch 180.” – Mark Hall, Lead Singer, Casting Crowns

“Extremely convicting. It made me question my courage. I pray it causes many to evaluate their silence.” – Francis Chan


 “I give my unflinching, joyful, trembling Yes to ‘180’. Unflinching, because it’s right. Joyful, because it’s good. Trembling, because this our defeated enemy is still vicious.” – John Piper


Human beings are being killed off by the thousands every day all across the world and our laws are encouraging it rather than preventing it. The practice of abortion has been diminished to a valid response to any type of unwanted pregnancy. It has been euphemised to a medical procedure, a matter of choice – not to be frowned upon.

Should we continue in our ignorance? Are we not the people who go to great lengths to protect various animal species when they are mistreated or brutally killed? Are we not the people who consider mass murderers and rapists to be evil? Are we not the people who protest against all the wars currently going on around the world? Are we not the people who call the current global warming phenomenon ‘the great moral crisis of our time’?

I discussed our moral inconsistency earlier in Washing Birds, Killing Babies.

Considering the fact that man is not really known for the great moral choices he makes, should we regard freedom of choice a reasonable defence for the murder of innocent people? Choice is not a right but a privilege not to be abused for selfish gain.

Is it not time we pull our heads out of the sand and face up to what we’re busy with?
