Dr. Jack Kevorkian is a controversial American medical doctor (pathologist). He is most noted for publicly championing a terminal patient’s “right to die” via euthanasia; he claims to have assisted at least 130 patients to that end. Between 1999 and 2007, he served eight years of a 10-to-25-year prison sentence for second-degree murder. He was released on June 1, 2007, on parole due to good behavior.
"Well, let's take what people think is a dignified death. Christ was that a dignified death? Do you think it's dignified to hang from wood with nails through your hands and feet bleeding, hang for three or four days slowly dying, with people jabbing spears into your side, and people jeering you? Do you think that's dignified? Not by a long shot. Had Christ died in my van with people around Him who loved Him, the way it was, it would be far more dignified. In my rusty van." ~Dr. Jack Kevorkian
