What if the over 40 million children aborted in America over the last three decades were to suddenly arrive? Author John Regan explores the idea in his new book, Return of The Children (ISBN 1-4251-3032-1).


Return of The Children tells a story of forgiveness and healing, as the 40 million aborted children approach their mothers and fathers to personally deliver the message of God's love and forgiveness. Powerful and moving scenes are described as the children, aged according to the passage of time since their conception, visit every city in America.


The IFRL is the largest grassroots pro-life organization in Illinois. A non-profit organization, that serves as the state coordinating body for local pro-life chapters representing thousands of Illinois citizens working to restore respect for all human life in our society. The IFRL is composed of people of different political persuasions, various faiths and diverse economic, social and ethnic backgrounds. Since 1973 the Illinois Federation for Right to Life has been working to end abortion and restore legal protection to those members of the human family who are threatened by abortion, infanticide and euthanasia. Diverse though we are, we hold one common belief - that every human being has an inalienable right to life that is precious and must be protected. IFRL is dedicated to restoring the right to life to the unborn, and protection for the disabled and the elderly.   Click here to learn more about the IFRL.

New Pro-Life Book 'Return of the Children' Ponders the Return of the Aborted

One particularly powerful scene involves the arrival of over sixty thousand children of varying ages to an abortionist who personally had ended their lives before birth. The children's message of love and forgiveness is difficult for him to receive, yet they strive to convince him of God's mercy and love.


"Your book, Return of The Children, is written in a way that touches the reader's heart," said Alfonso Cardinal Lopez Trujillo, President of the Pontifical Council for the Family in Vatican City. "I am confident that your book will contribute to help people return - convert - from their ways to the mercy of the Lord who is ever forgiving, and to reject recourse to inhumane measures like abortion, in which innocent lives are sacrificed. I bless your initiative and hope it will spread widely."


"This book is hard to put down," said Don Kazimir, Director of the Respect Life Office of the Diocese of Palm Beach. "John Regan has the gift to make you feel that you are actually witnessing the event that he is writing about."


The deeply moving message of Return of The Children can be part of the healing process for post-abortive parents, encouragement to those who are dedicated to ending abortion, and a reassuring and resounding testament of hope for those involved in the abortion industry.


"I kept wondering and thinking about what it would be like if the Lord allowed all the children to return for real—and what it would be like if my own aborted children were to return," said Rebecca Porter, Florida State Leader of Operation Outcry. "What a wonderful reunion for me, but it would be very difficult for others. The Lord would definitely bring healing, and it would open people's eyes to their future 'choice'."
