Re: “The Top 10 Pizzas in Little Rock

Half of those Pizzas looked burned !!!
Za Zas Pizzeria Santa Lucia, and Bruno's. NYPD and Iriana's apparently got a good deal on bell peppers and want to pass the savings on to you.
Layla's cheese pizza looked practically raw.
The Bruno's special looks like they forgot the pepperoni until they were about to pull it out of the oven then threw it on last minute.
Pizza Cafe and Vino's are the only two I would eat, Vino's has amazeballs sausage!

Re: “Anti-abortion votes rule Arkansas legislature

Iit isn't a story. It is just .. what happened to me, a 30 something mother who desperately wanted her child. I wanted Max. We tried to have him. We had a terrifying experience at 3 months where we thought he was gone.
Then we had hope. months went by and I went in for my high risk evaluation and the nurse says "It is a Boy!! congratulations!- I need to take these results to the doctor and then he will see you." 3 people enter. The nurse, the doctor and the "high risk counselor". Words are said. I want to run. All I hear is " he is dying."
I stumble home. Somehow.
It is not a story, it was my life in august.
It is unbearable to think of the consequences of this bill.

Re: “Anti-abortion votes rule Arkansas legislature

To Theodosius,
Pain is no excuse for ignorance. I have no idea what your excuse is.
I knew every step I had to go through once I had a TERMINAL DIAGNOSIS. I lived it. My son had no chance at life, at all. His heart was occupying 70% of his chest cavity and his heart beat was waning by the day. He was not growing except for his organs. If he had simply had dwarfism, I would be holding my lovely tiny son. But he didn't. He was going to die. This bill would have required me to retain the dying fetus as long as my body would hold it, or until infection set in and I had to have surgery. (To save the life of the mother)
As he is a man, and has a beautiful living daughter, as far as I know, Rep Mayberry has never had to carry a dead child in him. So no, he doesn't understand. sorry I didn't elaborate.

Re: “Anti-abortion votes rule Arkansas legislature

My son had thanataphoric dysphasia, a terminal condition, with no survival chances at all. It was diagnosed during my 2nd trimester exam. After 20 weeks. It was not an easy choice to terminate. I had planned on this child and was devastated at the diagnosis. However, the option of carrying my dying son to term, was not feasible, emotionally. Women who terminate this late are not doing so lightly, neither are the doctors performing these procedures. I can't imagine Rep. Mayberry has personally ever known any one who had to go through this painful process.
