Red Envelopes

Recently, a friend of mine sent me an email. It was about an idea someone had while she was praying.

As we all know, President Obama strongly supports abortion. He’s signing orders, bills, and laws left and right to expand abortions worldwide. It is very sad that our leaders feel this way. Especially since somewhere around 50 to 60% of Americans believe that abortions should be harder to obtain or entirely illegal.

This woman’s idea was about some red envelopes she had in her garage. What if President Obama received one red envelope for each child that has been aborted? Something like 50 million. 50 million red envelopes, each one saying “this represents a child who was never given the chance to live.” Could that possibly change his mind?

Here’s what she’d like us to do:

Go to an office or party supply store and buy some red envelopes. From what I hear, Kinkos has them.

On the front, address it to:

President Barack Obama
The White House
1600 Pennsylvania Ave.
Washington , D.C. 20500

On the back, write the following message:

“This envelope represents one child who died in abortion. It is empty because that life was unable to offer anything to the world. Responsibility begins with conception.”

Send it on February 28th. And also pass this along to every one of your friends who you think would send one too.

What a powerful way to get our point across. But please, please, please, don’t attack or say anything nasty to President Obama. Although we might not like his policies, he is still President of the United States. Although we disagree with him, we need to do it respectfully.
