On Tuesday, Drop Red Envelopes in the Mail

 

Next week, the White House is expected to receive hundreds of thousands of empty red envelopes, symbolizing the moral outrage of abortion.

“I wish we could send 50 million red envelopes, one for every child who died before having a chance to live,” said Christ Otto, who came up with the idea. “Maybe it will change the heart of the president.”

The plan is simple: On March 31, mail an empty red envelope to:

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

On the outside of the envelope, write:

“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.”
