Woman reported for sharing pro-life film with her own children

A woman was dismissed from a Christian school in the U.K. for recommending a Christian documentary on abortion, and then contacted by Child Protective Services for showing the film to her own children.

At a Church of England primary school fair, the woman provided tracts with a note encouraging children to watch 180, the highly popular Christian documentary on abortion. She was suspended, and told later that Child Protective Services had been notified since she admitted showing the film to her own two children.

Ray Comfort, the producer of 180 and founder of Living Waters, is horrified to hear of such strong opposition to a woman sharing the pro-life film.

“I found through my Facebook page that if there's anything that stirs up demons, it's the issue of abortion,” he tells OneNewsNow. “It's not about choice. It's about the killing of children, and it's a horror beyond words. For this to happen in England is horrific, and I think it will come to the states if we don't stand up as Christians and proclaim the gospel and see this nation reached for Jesus Christ.”

Comfort was surprised that it was a Christian school that became the woman's adversary.

“When you read Scripture, it's the religious people who tried to kill Jesus,” he says. “I don't know if you realize it, but they tried to kill him ten times before he got to the cross. Jesus warned that the time will come when people will kill Christians thinking they're doing God a service. And that really is the case with this. It's religious people, people who have a form of godliness, who have come against this poor woman, and she's just a sweetheart.”

Since the incident, Christians have risen in support of the woman. Comfort continues to work on his next film, Audacity, which deals with the subject of homosexuality.
