Hi, this is my blog for all sorts of pro-life news, statistics, stories, and personal ventings. I am a wife and mother, as well as a nursing student. I I truly believe that abortion has failed women, and will continue to do so as long as it is legal.

Lantana Lodge. How to say "Welcome Home" to a service man

This was at the beautiful Lantana Lodge in Pilot Point TX. We were there for our church's marriage retreat.

The lodge was wonderful. It's on Lake Ray Hubbard and has fantastic views. The food was fabulous, the room was cozy, and the company superb!

Now the really great thing about this lodge is they host a "Welcome Home" retreat for service men and their wives. It's to help reconnect the soldiers to their families after being separated by war. Any service man who has been back for less that 15 months is eligible for this FREE two week retreat. The lodge was setting up for the Soldiers Retreat as our group was leaving, and they really go all out.

Here's a link to a page detailing the information:

The Phoenix Project

If you know someone who just came home from Iraq and needs some time to reconnect I highly recommend this project.

    Your argument is becoming hopelessly confused, as you seem to jump back and forth between three types of claims: ethical arguments about the status of abortion; legal arguments regarding who has culpability in a situation; and empirical claims about who is responsible for committing an act. In addition you are resorting to caricatures and straw man argumentation.

    For example, you state: “The doctor is not responsible for the outcome of an ectopic pregnancy. He did not implant the embryo outside the uterus.” This is an obvious truth – nobody would argue against this! This was never even brought up, yet you raise it as if you’re making some kind of point.

    Then you state: “We don't prosecute a doctor for sepreating morbidly conjoined twins to save the life of one, but we would prosecute a doctor for injecting a patient with a fatal dose of morphine.” Again that’s obvious. It has something to do with informed consent. Injecting a patient with a lethal dose of morphine against the patient’s will is a violation of that consent. But the twins cannot consent! You are comparing apples and oranges – the two cases are not identical.

    Rather than continuing to fumble about with these awkward analogies, why don’t you just go back to our original topic of debate: personhood. You have not defined what you mean by this term, nor where in the body rights reside (since you claimed they are inherent.)


    PS – I do love the fact that you spelled ludicrous as “ludicris” like the hip hop star. You get big style points for that one.

  • Thom, I'm going to be gone til late Sunday so I'll answer your question then, as well as ask a few of my own.

    As far as "ludacris I generally don't spell check my comment section because it is not intended to be publishable material, but rather informal discussion.

    As far as the rap star, I'm only familiar with him from his debut song that had something to do with lots of sex. Not exactly the type of music I listen to, so I'm afraid I don't get any style points, just points from the fall out of "whole language".

  • I had fun. It was awesome haning out with you and Oliver. You two could be twins (only that'd be weird, Appalaichan, and kinda sick).

    Again! Sometime we need to take a Scrabble board. :)

  • Haha I had a great time with you too! And,yes, Oliver and I are often confused for brother and sister. Lol!

    We must scrabble indeed!
