Kevorkian Speech at WMU
(2007-11-29)
(wgvu) - DETROIT (AP) - Nearly six months after his release from a
Michigan prison, Jack Kevorkian still maintains he was right to
help suffering people end their lives.
The assisted suicide advocate spoke to more than 300 people
during an afternoon speech at Wayne State University in Detroit.
Kevorkian says that when a person wanted to die and asked him
for help, he did his duty as a doctor.
The retired pathologist says the country's court system and
judges are corrupt, and laws are made to infringe on rights already
guaranteed in the U.S. Constitution.
Kevorkian was released from prison in June after serving more
than eight years behind bars. He's on parole for two years.
He claims to have helped at least 130 people die from 1990 to
1998. He has promised not to help in any other assisted suicides.
