Jack Kevorkian is up for parole in 2007…but supposedly, he may not live that long. According to an AP article, Dr. Kevorkian’s lawyers are pushing for parole.
I understand the controversy over Assisted Suicide. But is helping to put a terminally ill man out of his misery as bad as muder? Be honest. Only Oregon permits assisted suicide — but even that may change. Why shouldn’t a man or woman facing death, be put out of their suffering? They own their lives, don’t they?
According to Wikipedia, Kevorkian said in a September MSNBC interview, he wouldn’t return to his practice — but work to have the law changed. Regardless of how you feel, Kevorkian provided the materials — the patients “did the work”. They took their own lives. Kevorkian didn’t.
Why do we see a man — regardless of what he did — who helped people as some kind of satanic creature? He helped people to end their suffer.
Kevorkian should get an award, not a jail sentence.
He should be able to die peacefully, like his patients…not in Jail.
