Red Envelope Day

Friends,
On March 31st, 2009: get a red envelope. You can buy them at Kinkos, or party supply stores.

On the front, address it to:
President Barack Obama
The White House
1600 Pennsylvania Ave. NW
Washington, DC 20500


On the back, write the following message:

"This envelope represents one child who died because of an abortion. It is empty because the life that was taken is now unable to be a part of our world. Responsibility begins with conception."


It may seem that those who believe abortion is wrong are in a minority. It may seem like we have no voice & it's shameful to even bring it up. Let us show our President & the world that the voices of those of us who do not believe abortion is acceptable are not silent & must be heard.


Barack Obama spoke at a Planned Parenthood Action Fund event, uttering the now infamous line, "Well, the first thing I'd do as president is sign the Freedom of Choice Act. {applause.} That's the first thing that I'd do."


An empty red envelope will send a message to President Obama that there is moral outrage over this issue (the Freedom of Choice Act, which will undo every law currently in place to limit abortion in the U.S. (parental consent laws, parental notification, waiting periods, prohibition of transporting a minor girl across state lines to obtain an abortion, etc.)).


It will be quiet, but clear.


Mail the envelope on March 31st, 2009Then forward this event to every one of your friends who you think would send one too.
