STOCKHOLM, Sweden (AP) - Caught in a violent storm, 852 passengers died within minutes after winds ripped off the bow door of the ferry Estonia in 1994, sending icy water gushing through the car deck.
On Friday, authorities sought clues after another "roll-on, roll-off" ferry sank in the Red Sea with nearly 1,500 people aboard. The cause was unknown, but experts said the vessel's design may have been a key factor.
Those that did survive may have done so by huddling together, in life rafts that were thrown from the ship, as it was going down. A trauma physician from Turku University Hospital said that all of the victims that were brought to his facility were suffering from hypothermia,
Hypothermia could account for girls and women under 15 or over 65 not surviving. The lower their body weight or the poorer their health ..the less likely they would survive hypothermia. It might also explain why many males age 20 to 24 survived since they would be among the strongest
Or the young men could have just been near the life rafts when the ship sink and they threw them in the water.
Did anyone investigate? do you have a link? I would be interested in readin more.
It all happened so fast , they said the ship was down within minutes ...
What a sad tragedy for all the victims and their loved ones.
Viability in childcare as used by many in the medical profession is the cut-off or start point at which intensive medical treatment may or may not have an effect on the survivability of a preterm baby. Before this, the chances of the baby surviving outside the uterus are very slim. 24 weeks is the standard and that is why it is also the cut-off for where an abortion may be performed for non emergency reasons. Before 24 weeks there is little liklihood of the baby surviving: after 24 weeks, there is a very strong chance and that is why you are then (if having an abortion) harming someone who may survive.
Introducing morality into this serves the same purpose as reducing abortion from 24 weeks to 12 to 6 as we presumably now see in North Dakota is going to lead to a complete ban - that is the end game of taking away a woman's right to make decisions about her own body and what happens to it. Morality simply puts the blame on an unhappy mother who should have had the choice whether or not to carry to term.
As for the financial solution to having many unwanted babies sitting in children's homes needing feeding and care - I await the proposals of many on the anti-abortion side.
From where does the "right" originate? I purpose that this so called "right" of the woman to have the complete say of whether or not to allow the unborn child to live is not a right at all, and actually takes away the rights of not only the man involved in creating the pregnancy, but the rights of the unborn child as well.

And why not? Unless there are lies being told then all information should be made available.I have no problem with high quality information being presented to a pregnant mother about alternatives she may have if she allowed the baby to carry to term however anti-abortionists already use emotive and highly charged terms to describe abortion and mothers who have abortions.
There are many myths about adoption, and many who are willing to set the record straight.The truth about domestic adoption | BabyCenterI don't trust that alternatives won't be presented in ways that pressurise women to keep their unwanted babies or simply end up with many unwanted children living in childcare where the next problem arises which is who will pay for them.

Morality has to play a part in these decisions. How can it not?? Also it will probably encourage more young women to take extra precautions and make the right decisions in her life.Introducing morality into this serves the same purpose as reducing abortion from 24 weeks to 12 to 6 as we presumably now see in North Dakota is going to lead to a complete ban - that is the end game of taking away a woman's right to make decisions about her own body and what happens to it.

There are plenty of good people ready to help with the care, feeding and attention of children. We need to have more trust in our fellow citizens rather than assuming the worst and heading directly to the abortion clinic.As for the financial solution to having many unwanted babies sitting in children's homes needing feeding and care - I await the proposals of many on the anti-abortion side.
