Dr. K on the loose again:
After spending eight years in the slammer on a second-degree murder conviction, Dr. Jack Kevorkian, a.k.a. “Dr. Death,” is once again a free man—and he hasn’t changed his belief that terminally ill patients have the right to die.
Of course he hasn’t. Because they do.
This morning I heard on NPR that Right to Die groups are comparing his assisted suicide method to pre-Roe illegal abortions, suggesting that if there were a safe and legal way for a terminally ill patient to decide to end his/her life with dignity and the assistance of trained medical personnel, Dr. Kevorkian wouldn’t be necessary.
That sounds about right. I’m quite certain he would agree.
