The Easiest Way to Oppose Abortion

There has been a lot of buzz of late concerning Christians and certain moral stances (abortion, embryonic stem cell research, homosexual marriage). With Obama changing a lot of things about abortion, it has awakened a lot of religious groups opposed to abortion.

A story I heard about a month ago was back in the news recently. The big discussion was a way to let the White House know that there were a lot of Americans who were opposed to abortion and the recent executive orders coming from the White House. One man, named Christ Otto, believes that God gave him the idea to send some empty red envelopes to the White House. On the back of the envelopes he wrote, “This envelope represents one child who died in abortion. It is empty because that life was unable to offer anything to the world. LIFE begins at conception.” The idea quickly caught on among Christians across the nation and quickly became known as the "Red Envelope Project."

World Net Daily and The Florida Baptist Witness both recently ran stories addressing the success of the project. The story in WND reported that a White House staffer confirmed that there were well over 2 million envelopes received.

Christ Otto, in an effort to continue the success of the Red Envelope Project, has started the website The LIFE Envelope Project It is still the same effort—to make clear the concerns about abortion to the White House—with some new ideas about envelopes. I think this is a great way for Christians to get involved in opposing abortion. It is not confrontational (like standing in front of an abortion clinic), it does not take great debating skills (like addressing the issue publicly), and it is something people of all ages can do. If you have been looking for a way to get involved in the abortion arena but haven’t really been sure how to do so, I encourage you to go over to Christ Otto’s site and take a look at how to get involved. It’s extremely easy and I don’t think you will regret it.
