    'Assisted Suicide' Doc Kevorkian Dies, report

    This was a very controversial person who thought he was doing good for people who had no chance at a normal life in his and their minds, or were suffering from massive pain.

    Not sure how the majority of people felt about him.

    I didn't make tthis a RIP so people cought express how they felt about him.

    I have mixed feeling but then I died for about 4 minutes in 1984, and know there is more to life than here and now.

    Jack Kevorkian: 'Dr. Death' Jack Kevorkian Dies at 83 - ktla.com


    DETROIT -- Dr. Jack Kevorkian has died at the age of 83, according the Detroit Free Press, who spoke with his lawyer.

    Kevorkian died at Beaumont Hospital in Royal Oak, where he had been hospitalized for about two weeks with kidney and heart problems, attorney Mayer Morganroth told the newspaper.

    Morganroth said it appears Kevorkian suffered a pulmonary thrombosis when a blood clot from his leg broke free and lodged in his heart. With Kevorkian were his niece Ava Janus and Morganroth.

    Re: 'Assisted Suicide' Doc Kevorkian Dies, report

    So long as the people were seeking him out and knew that what was coming was what they wanted I'm fine with what he did. If he was seeking out the sick and pushing his system onto them for some sort of sick pleasure I'm not so sure. Honestly, his controversy occurred before I could recognize the implications, so I'm not very familiar with exactly how he did his works, nor was it interesting enough that I wanted to resesarch it.

    RIP, though.

    My only regret here is that he died before he had a chance to "help out" George Bush and Barack Obama.

    The guy was a crazy, egotistical nut, not some hero. Good riddance.

    The man was a hero, giving compassion to the suffering that our perverse, profit-driven healthcare system would not allow.

    IMO, it is not the health care system fault, but political views that had him in a bad light.

    We spend more money on healthcare in the last 18 years of our lives than the entire rest of them, and almost all of that is completely pointless. You think the hospital industry is going to give up those profits?

    He was nothing other than a death enthusiast and a convicted felon. He compared our Supreme Court to Nazi Germany and opposed even seat belt and helmet laws. It was not about compassion, he just hated the human race.

    As an opponent of Physician Assisted Suicide, I could not ask for a better advocate for it.

    My sentiments exactly. I seriously doubt any of his victims were of sound body and mind. Hopefully Satan is shoving a pitchfork up his ass.

    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Cicero Marcus Tullius
