Red Envelope Project Tells President Obama of Outrage over Abortion Promotion

February 12, 2009

By Thaddeus M. Baklinski

(LifeSiteNews.com) - A grassroots initiative has sprung up which hopes to send a message to US president Barack Obama that there is moral outrage in the country over his administration’s promotion of abortion.

The Red Envelope Project has been spreading for some time by e-mail, and now a website has been set up to further promote the project. (http://www.redenvelopeproject.org/)

The email that has been circulating reads in part: “I have been involved in the pro-life movement for nearly 20 years, and it pained my heart to see a man (Obama) 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 LIFE tape, 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.”

LifeSiteNews.com was informed of the initiative today, which involves sending an empty red envelope to President Obama with the words, “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,” written on the back.

The envelope should be addressed to:

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

A website has just been created to provide information on the initiative and has the option of allowing individuals who have sent red envelopes to the president to add the number to a running tally: http://www.redenvelopeproject.org/
