Red Envelope Project

Saw this on a friends blog and decided I will also take part in this....hope you will do the same.
On March 31 Americans are being called to action. It will take 3 minutes of your time and about fifty cents to help make a difference in ending abortion. In this critical political climate, every voice is essential. Dr. Seuss reminds us through the words of Horton that "A person's a Person No Matter How Small." We need to speak out for those who can't speak out for themselves.

Dear Friends and Intercessors:

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. 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 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.Here is what I would like you to do:Get a red envelope. You can buy them at Kinkos, or at party supply stores. On the front, address it to President Barack Obama The White House1600 Pennsylvania Ave.Washington , D.C. 20500On 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 at conception."Put it in the mail, and send it. Then forward this email to every one of your friends who you think would send one too. I wish we could send 50 million red envelopes, one for every child who died before having a chance to live. Maybe it will change the heart of the President.

Thanks for posting this. It is our responsibility to do whatever we can to stop the murder of the unborn. The Lord will soon judge this nation for allowing the slaughter of millions and millons of His precious babies. God is for life. He is the author of it. He expects His children to stand up in defense of the unborn. God help this President to repent of his evil ways.
