Washington, DC (LifeNews.com) — It started with one unknown person who had a prayer and desire to affect the abortion debate and it has caught on to become an Internet phenomenon. The Red Envelope Project could result in millions of envelopes heading to the White House over the next month to protest President Barack Obama’s pro-abortion policies.
"This afternoon I was praying about a number of things, and my mind began to wander. I was deeply distressed at the symbolic actions that President Obama took as he began his presidency," the popular email says.
"This man and his 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."
How could that pro-life majority respond? The answer to the prayer for a way resulted in the red envelope campaign.
Based on the red tape students are using to cover their mouths in silent abortion protest, the pro-life advocate developed the idea to send an empty red envelope to the White House to protest abortion.
ACTION: Purchase your red envelopes and send them to President Obama at The White House, 1600 Pennsylvania Ave, Washington , D.C. 20500.
