Ortega delays Contra decision
MANAGUA, Nicaragua - President Daniel Ortega postponed until
today a decision on whether to end a 19-month-old truce with U.S.-backed
Contras, a government official said.
A spokesperson at the president's office said an evening news confer-
ence to announce a decision was put off because Ortega was still meeting
with senior defense and interior ministry officials, "and this meeting will
last a long time.
"We'll have the announcement very early Wednesday," she said, speak-

President Bush has left open the possibility that he would seek mili-
tary aid to the Contras if Ortega went ahead with his plans to break the

Sailor swept overboard in
third Navy accident this week
NORFOLK, VA. - A wave struck a freight elevator on an aircraft
carrier as crew members were moving missiles from one deck to another
yesterday, sweeping three sailors and 38 missiles into the ocean, the Navy
said. Two sailors were rescued.
Navy planes and ships searched through the day for the third crewman
who fell overboard in the third accident on a Navy ship in as many days.
The latest occurred on the aircraft carrier USS Dwight D. Eisenhower dur=
ing routine operations 90 miles southeast of Cape Hatteras, N.C., the
Navy said in a news release.
One of the two sailors rescued about an hour after the 1:15 a.m. EST
accident was in serious condition and the other was in good condition, said
Lt. j.g. Karl Johnson, an Atlantic Fleet spokesperson. They were being
treated aboard ship, he said.
The missiles, which were non-nuclear, air-to-air missiles, posed no
risk, the Navy said.
House may repeal 1846 law
that makes abortion a felony
LANSING - A House committee yesterday approved a pro-choice bill
intended to thwart an automatic return to illegal abortions, just one week
after the Senate approved a pro-life bill restricting the procedure.
The House Judiciary Committee voted 11-6 for a bill repealing an
1846 law making it a felony for someone to perform an abortion unless
necessary to save the pregnant woman's life.
The law has not been enforced since 1973, when the U.S. Supreme
Court legalized abortion in its Roe vs. Wade ruling.
Rep. Nick Ciaramitaro (D-Roseville), a pro-life lawmaker, said he's
concerned the bill would make it legal for someone to perform an abortion
after the fetus is deemed viable in the final trimester of pregnancy.
Pro-choice forces fear the statute would automatically go into effect
and make abortions illegal in Michigan if the high court leaves the abor-
tion decision to states.
SDiabetic kids treat lawmakers
LANSING - Diabetic children went on a reverse trick or treat jaunt
