Dr. Jack Kevorkian passed away yesterday. In the hospital and not by his own hand. It's kind of anticlimactic, considering the way he put himself on display with his suicide machine.
Dr. Kevorkian could have been an advocate for assisted suicide without acting the fool. If he had, maybe we would be farther along the road to legalizing euthanasia for human beings. Instead, "Dr. Kevorkian" is a punchline and we have people who are terminally ill, suffering, and are forced to watch themselves waste away instead of having a quick and dignified end. What a shame.
And that's all I have to say about that.
