any chance you're pregnant? watch this movie first
This movie is still one of my favorites by Ray Comfort. It moves through three different topics that are still 'hot button' issues in our culture. Many countries are denying the Holocaust (despite the overwhelming evidence otherwise), the education about abortion procedures and what really happens is quite poor in the USA, and then of course, religion: who is God and the million dollar question, what happens to us when we die? These three topics wouldn't normally go together, but in this movie Ray makes the transition easy by way of deductive reasoning. After this movie came out, several new mothers who were thinking about abortion came back to Ray and thanked him for his logical reasoning, and compassionate discussion, on what happens in the womb.
In part of my past, I spent time with post-abortive women. Abortion is clouded and not explained, which still boggles my mind. If you had a broken arm, the doctor would show you the x-ray, explain the procedure to fix it, and would explain the potential risks. For some reason, abortion isn't treated like a normal surgery in the medical field and these ladies are being lied to. Ray doesn't go that direction with the discussion, but instead approaches it by considering 'when does life begin?' Ironically, you are pronounced dead when your heartbeat stops, but you aren't pronounced 'alive' when your heartbeat starts. Which by the way, a baby's heart is visibly beating at 5 weeks gestation, which is usually when the mother takes her first pregnancy test.
I appreciate that Ray is simply walking people towards the truth. He doesn't hound them, he doesn't pressure them, he just asks questions and respects their decisions.
This should be inspiring for Christians to realize that you can do this too!
