"Always admired Jack's dedication in helping people to die with dignity.
He no doubt has paved the way to for palliative and hospice care movements which essentially allow a person to die on their own terms, without prolonged suffering.
He put the whole issue of patient's rights to dignity and self determination whenn it comes to human suffering.
His contributions to this cause have left a lasting impression on our society.
He will be missed"
"I am strongly Christian (sort of 1/2 Catholic and 1/2 Evanglical), so you might think that I would consider Dr. Kevorkian's work to be the ultimate sin. But I also practice medicine. I KNOW that not so many decades ago, many of the people who today would choose assisted suicide would have died off long before they had to make that decision. The advancement of medical science and technology has ALSO meant the extension of the lives of some people who would have died sooner (and thus with less time spent suffering) of their terminal illnesses. I know God to be a God of mercy. I believe that Jack Kevorkian was a man of mercy. "Blessed are the merciful, for they shall be shown mercy." (Matthew 5:7) ... Blessed are the merciful - That is, those who are so affected by the sufferings of others as to be disposed to alleviate them. This is given as an evidence of piety, and it is said that they who show mercy to others shall obtain it. Nowhere do we imitate God more than in showing mercy. In nothing does God delight more than in the exercise of mercy, Exodus 34:6; Ezekiel 33:11; 1 Timothy 2:4; 2 Peter 3:9."
