Unborn Child Rights Supported by New Evidence in Castaways Book
The Castaways: New Evidence Supporting the Rights of the Unborn Child
Dear Reader, this is a brief excerpt from Sarah Hinze’s amazing book. It is a little book, available on Amazon. I urge you to read it. Once you have read its life-changing message—even this short excerpt—you will never feel the same. Most of you are already pro-life, but this will deepen and strengthen your testimony of God’s love for all His children. ~C.A. Davidson
Words of author Sarah Hinze: (27-31)
I was born to loving parents. The world was mine and I was excited to learn as much about it as I could. I was especially eager to learn about God. A pivotal moment for me came when I first heard in my university English class a poem by William Wordsworth:
Our birth is but a sleep and a forgetting:
The Soul that rises with us, our life’s Star,
Hath had elsewhere its setting,
And cometh from afar:
Not in entire forgetfulness,
And not in utter nakedness,
But trailing clouds of glory do we come
From God, who is our home.
After I married and our children began to arrive, several of their births were preceded by what I later learned to call an “announcing dream” in which I saw or sensed the soul of the child to be born. In some cases I was even told what the child’s chosen name was to be.
I wondered if other parents had these experiences, and soon discovered that I was by no means the only one. But what began as curiosity became a quest when I received a profound impression that part of my life’s mission was to research, teach, and write about the souls of the unborn.
By the end of 1993, [my husband] Brent and I had recorded over one hundred pre-birth experiences and published the encounters of nearly forty individuals with their future children in my book Life Before Life.
A Hallowed Quality to This Research
As we continued our research, a startling new category of experiences began to appear. Some of the individuals we interviewed described experiences with children who had once been aborted—children who were thought to have been destroyed and to o longer exist. In fact, some of the people we interviewed actually remembered being victims of abortion themselves, while others recalled unsuccessful abortion attempts on their lives in the womb. And some individuals who had undergone near death experiences reported meeting the children they had aborted.
Driving home late at night after my monthly writers meeting with friends in the Arizona Night Writers Association, feelings that had been mounting all day returned as I contemplated the fate of the souls of aborted children. I pulled into the driveway and quietly entered our home. Brent had put the children to bed and had fallen asleep in his office. Alone in our bedroom, my anxiety increased until, overcome, I slid from the bed to my knees in prayer.
“Dear Lord, what will happen to the children who are trying to come down?”
I wept, and it was as if I could feel heaven weeping also. Into my mind came an image fo Jesus wearing a white robe, shoulders weighed down, sorrow on His face.
I heard Him say, “I will allow you to feel of my grief so you may understand the distress that abortions bring upon heaven, especially upon those awaiting birth.”
My emotional and spiritual pain was becoming intense. I prayed, “Oh dear Lord, please take it away!”
In reply, these words entered my mind: “My daughter, you need to experience this a little longer so that it will register with firmness upon your soul. Then you will never forget heaven’s pain over the aborted, and you will never turn away from helping the little ones.”
I bowed my head, praying that I could do His will. At last, when I could endure no more, He took it away. It was as though He had rescued me from the terror experienced by a defenseless child being killed by abortion.
I promised to do whatever I could in behalf of my unborn brothers and sisters. It was a call to do as God instructed in the book of Proverbs: “Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves.” (NIV Proverbs 8:31)
