Swimming huh? What's your plan then if you're paralyzed, knocked out, or in shock from a boating accident?

And if you think cold is all the same when in a life jacket as when you're not, it isn't. Hypothermia, which can happen quickly in cold water, may cause loss of consciousness.

there are some situations where knowing to swim wont help as much as a life jacket like being in the middle of the ocean

That's what natural buoyancy is for. Basically remaining in this position and lifting your head every so often to take a breath takes minimal energy and will keep you floating.

how would you deal with the cold? life jackets give visibility as well

If you were in cold water, your legs would radiate all the heat out of you regardless of whether you're wearing a life jacket or not. As for visibility, I suppose that's sort of a valid point, but if you're (as you said) in the middle of the ocean, you don't have too much of a chance either way

Let's summarize:
Life jacket with not in middle of ocean- Swim to land
Natural buoyancy not in middle of ocean- Swim to land
Life jacket in the middle of the ocean- You're pretty much screwed
Natural buoyancy in the middle of the ocean- You're pretty much screwed
Either in cold water (without a wetsuit)- Death by hypothermia

If you know how to swim, you probably won't need rescuing

It might buy you those extra few minutes (before you die of exhaustion/hypothermia) rescuers need to get to you. Nowadays SAR units are very fast and with help of GPS they can get to you much faster, hell there's even an option built in in GPS so in dire stress your ship can actually communicate with the SAR (not only one way).

There are also certain anti-hypotermia tactics that require a life jacket like forming a spiral and turning that spiral inside out every 10-20 minutes so everybody gets to have the chance to be in the center.

Also look at this link (and maybe even click it): You need to login to view this link for the estimated survival times to prove my first point.

You're calculations are off. If you're wearing an expensive life jacket, then the rescuers will come faster with hopes of obtaining said life jacket and selling it on ebay.

Life jacket in any water- rescue.

natural buoyancy means just about jack in wavy water. The energy you'd have to expend to keep in that position versus wading/swimming to shore from 2-3 miles is a big difference between life and death.

I understand what you're trying to say but still, it's not like a life jacket will hurt you and what if you are carrying a lot of gear or in boots? or you are carrying another person to safety, you'll exhuast more energy trying to stay up

You're right,

Instead we should use tax money to get a life jacket for everyone, even babies

Don't want to swim? Too bad, pay for it anyway.

Who cares if people are reckless, frivolous, and superficial about swimming? Let's just make it mandatory because it's fun

I am personally pro-life,except in cases of rape, birth defects, injury to the mother etc. I just feel like if you actively make a choice to have unprotected sex, you should have the foresight to see the consequences and not just use abortion as a fallback because it exists. I guess what I'm trying to say in relation to this post is, If you want to go into the water, know how to swim and you won't need the life jacket. Post bashing both the pro-life and pro-choice argument are so ridiculous because dealing with someone (or something's life, depending on your POV) shouldn't be a dichotomy of all good or all bad, because there is SO much middle ground and unique cases when it comes to such a topic

the life jacket is the perfect comparison

you can **** a thousand times and have save sex, and that 1001th time a condom will tear/ the girl will be sickly and vomit out the pill or something like that
just like you can go swimming in a natural river for a 1000 times and twist your ankle or get surprised by the currents the 1001th time. thinking there are certainties in life is foolish.

Accidentally doing something doesn't absolve you of responsibility, doesn't matter how unlikely, if I accidentally run into the back of someone's car I still pay the damages, it's called being an adult, if you can't handle it don't do adult things.

well even if you know how to swim a life jacket could save your life, like if you twist your ankle when you fall or your out there for hours and get to tired to swim anymore. plus being bright orange helps the rescue team see where you are.
i agree with your post but dont dis life jackets, they actually can save lives.

let me clarify. If the child will live and you can give it enough care with the added difficulties, by all means keep it. However there are certain birth defects where the child won't live outside the womb. An example of this is trisome-21 (three of the 21st chromosome) is down syndrome, where the child will be severely disabled but can still function well if extra time and effort is applied. In this case, while being a tough decision, i would personally keep the child and advocate such. However, trisome-17 is a disorder where none of the internal sphincters connect (throat doesnt connect to stomach, which doesnt connect to intestine, etc) and basically the child can't breathe because the lungs aren't connected and it dies in a minute. If that's the case i don't see a point because it only causes more complications for the mother to have the baby.

We are NOT arguing on whether or not the baby that is present in the womb is "planned" (i.e.: rape). The real question is will we will protect life at all stages in life (conception, childhood, adolescence, adulthood, old age)?

When I see people support abortion now-a-days (I used to be pro-choice), all I see is justification for Hitler's holocaust. What is the difference in aborting and killing?

So dying by drowning is equivalent to having to deal with the most obvious consequence of unprotected sex? Also the pregnancy by rape thing has kind of been nullified by modern day post rape procedures (If reported immediately, that other statement that the body rejects it automatically is complete idiocy on whatever senator who said it's part). But still it's not like there is a plethora of birth controls available at a reasonable price or anything......
