Flood Washington with Red Envelops – the Abortion Folks Picked a Fight with the Wrong People

 Only 13 Days Left…

If You Did Not Actually Order Your Red Envelopes
For Red Envelope Day 2013,
Will You Please Consider Doing That Right Now?

Help us prepare the next batch of empty Red Envelopes by January 12th
for delivery on January 22, 2013… the 40th Memorial of Roe VWade!

 The unborn cannot speak for themselves and the clock is ticking to January 22nd
the 40th Memorial of Roe v. Wade and the March for Life on the January 25th.
Let your Empty Red Envelopes Be Their Voice

     Re-printed from World Net Daily – January 5th, 2013 by Chelsea Schilling – This month, hundreds of thousands of Americans will march on Washington, D.C., in defense of the nearly 56 million babies killed in the womb since the Supreme Court decision legalizing abortion 40 years  ago – and now even the millions who can’t travel the nation’s capital will flood the offices of President Obama, key government officials and the mainstream news media with as many as 2 million empty red envelopes bearing a very clear message:

“This envelope represents one child who died in abortion. It is empty, a life taken that was unable to offer anything to the world. Responsibility and life begin at conception.”

      Jan. 22, 2013, is the 40th memorial of Roe v. Wade, the 1973 Supreme Court decision legalizing abortion. Now that day has been designated Red Envelope Day as Americans plan to send a visual expression of moral outrage deep into the halls of Congress, beyond the marble columns of the Supreme Court and into the Oval Office.

Red Envelope Day 2013 gives participants the choice to send red envelopes to:

President Obama
Vice President Joseph Biden
Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius
House Speaker John Boehner
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid
Secretary of State Hillary Clinton
All nine Supreme Court justices
CNN President Jim Walton
New York Times Executive Editor Jill Abramson
Washington Post Editor Philip Bennett
Fox News’ Sean Hannity
Fox News’ Bill O’Reilly

       A portion of the proceeds of every red envelope goes directly to organizations committed to the pro-life cause. As WND reported, in 2009 millions of empty red envelopes were delivered directly to the White House. That year, the White House mail office confirmed it received a “deluge” of as many as 2.3 million red envelopes symbolizing the empty promise of lives snuffed out in abortion in a massive campaign that was larger than most White House mailing movements in the previous 35 years.

      “I’ve been here 35 years, so I’ve seen presidents come and go,” the White House mail worker told WND. “This campaign ranks up there with the big ones.”

      The Red Envelope Day Campaign seeks to meet or exceed the number of empty red envelopes that were sent in 2009. And from that, 100 percent of the net proceeds will be disbursed to pro-life organizations. According to organizers, if 2 million Red Envelope Day envelopes are delivered Jan. 22, it would result in approximately $1 million donated tofrontline pro-life organizations.

   Richard Lepoutre, Red Envelope Day 2013 project leader, told WND he is encouraging Americans to give the
gift of life. “Supporting the Red Envelope Day 2013 campaign is a gift that will say so much to our loved ones,”
he said. “Sending those envelopes through the system says to all: We will not abandon the preborn, and we
will make our conviction known far and wide.”

      Because of the funding for pro-life groups, Lepoutre said the 2013 campaign could now have twice the impact it had in 2009. “We will remind America and our country’s political leadership once again that we are still very much a pro-life nation.”

Help the Red Envelope campaign deliver at least 2 million red envelopes
to President Obama, members of Congress, the Supreme Court and
some of the biggest names in the mainstream media.

Steve — While this is yet another good attempt to get the attention of the people in DC, it is doomed for failure for one simple reason. The only “red envelopes” that these people care about are the ones that we stuck in the ballot boxes on Nov. 6th.

We elected, thanks to the votes of disobedient and rebellious Catholics and brain-dead Fundamentalists who were terrified of voting for a Mormon, a serial baby killer. That is what politicians pay attention to.

Furthermore, when the only thing we talk about as a people (aside from the small and dedicated minority of people who think that abortion is the number one issue) is the economy, then do you think that even 10 million envelopes out of a country of 300 million people is going to get any more from these folks than a stiffled yawn?

On the day that 20 million Catholics show up in January for The March, on the day that voters only talk about stopping abortion — that will be the day that the politicians sit up and notice. They will do right, not because they are moral or really care, but as with all politicians, to save their cushy jobs.

Sorry to be such a downer here, but that is, in my opinion, the reality we face. May God have mercy on this wicked nation!
