    I dont know where this got started but ended up in my wife's email.

    What do you think about it?

    Together we can make a difference!

    When:Â March 31st, 2009
    How:Â Get a red envelope.
    (You can buy them at Kinkos, Staples, or at party supply stores.)
    On the front, address it to:
    President Barack Obama
    The White House
    1600 Pennsylvania Ave NW
    Washington , D.C. 20500
    On the back of the envelope, 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."

    Mail the envelopes March 31st, 2009.

    Forward this event 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 [in the U.S.] before having a chance to live.
    It may seem that those who believe abortion is wrong are in a minority.
    It may seem like we have no voice and it's shameful to even bring it up. Let us
    show our President and the world that the voices of those of us who do not believe abortion is acceptable are not silent and must be heard.
    Together we can change the heart of The President and save the lives of
    millions of children.

    Thank you.

    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, 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 Barack Obama that
    there is moral outrage in this country over this issue [The Freedom of
    Choice Act, which will essentially "undo" every law currently in place
    to limit abortion in the U.S. (i.e., 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

    It might help the USPS budget.

    A variation would be to use a regular white envelope and use red ink. I think I'll try that. If enough envelopes were received at the WH, it would help to drive home the point. Anything is worth a try on this issue.
