TAKE ACTION WITH RED ENVELOPES

In my email today. I will be doing this...

I have been deeply distressed at the symbolic actions that President Obama took as he began his presidency. Namely, that he signed executive orders releasing funds to pay for abortions, permission to fund human stem cell research, and federal funding for contraception. I have been involved in the pro-life movement for nearly 20 years, and it pained my heart to see a man and a political party committed to the shedding of innocent blood. This man, and this party lead our country, but they do not represent me or the 54% of Americans who believe that abortion is wrong and should no longer be legal.

As I was praying, I believe that God gave me an interesting idea. Out in the garage I have a box of red envelopes. Like the powerful image of the red LIFEtape, an empty red envelope will send a message to Barack Obama that there is moral outrage in this country over this issue. It will be quiet, but clear.

Here is what I would like you to do:

Get a red envelope. (You can buy them at Kinkos, or at party supply stores.) In the front, address it to:
President Barack Obama
The White House
1600 Pennsylvania Ave.
Washington, D.C.


On the back, write the following message:
This envelope represents one child who died in an abortion "procedure". It is empty because that life was unable to offer anything to the world. Responsibility begins at conception.

Put it in the mail, and send it.

I don't have the name of the woman who got this vision but it wasn't me.
God have mercy on a country whose citizens stand by and let their babies be slaughtered by the millions. Is there any hope for people such as these?

Will you object if we copy this into an e-mail and send to our friends?

I'll do it. Christmas envelopes are a lot of times red as well. I know I have some lurking around in my basement.

Not at all, Paul. Feel free. By all means. Thanks everyone. I thought it was pretty cool too.

This is a wonderful idea.
