>Dr Jack Kevorkian, the assisted suicide doctor, was released from prison yesterday. Having witnessed the very painful death of my grandmother of MND (Lou Gehrigs), a muscle wasting disease in which the victim dies of suffocation eventually as the breathing muscles fail. I applaud Jack Kevorkian for having the balls to make a stand.
Death is never an easy issue. I don’t like any premature deaths. After all, you’re a long time dead. But when a desparately ill patient chooses to die and it’s signed off by some legality, their wishes must be respected.
