The email that has been circulating reads in part: "I have been involved in the pro-life movement for nearly 20 years, and it pained my heart to see a man (Obama) 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.Isn't that a great idea, folks? Hopefully, the mailbox at the White House gets flooded with millions of those red envelopes over the weeks to come. And - why shouldn't we try the same Red Envelope campaign here in Canada? After all - don't we have a prime minister who promised never to allow a vote on abortion? Don't we have a justice minister who keeps blocking one pro-life initiative after another? So let's start a Canadian Red Envelope campaign. Let's send those same envelopes to Stephen Harper.
"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."
LifeSiteNews.com was informed of the initiative today, which involves sending an empty red envelope to President Obama with the words, "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," written on the back.
