An estimated 2 million red envelopes were mailed to the White House last week, according to the project’s Web site.
The empty red envelopes read: “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.”
“I really hope it sends a very clear message to the Obama administration that their agenda regarding abortion is really out of step with mainstream America,” said Christ Otto, who launched the project.
A White House mailroom staffer has confirmed that nearly 2.5 million red envelopes have made their way to President Barack Obama to protest his pro-abortion record. The staff member says the campaign is one of the largest efforts he can recall in his 35 years working at the White House. “Quite frankly, there was definitely a deluge of mail coming through,” he laughed. “I had to handle them all.” “I’ve been here 35 years, so I’ve seen presidents come and go,” he told WND. “This campaign ranks up there with the big ones.”
One of the biggest campaigns in 35 years? 2 million envelopes? And not a peep from CNN.
