Doctor Kevorkian running for Congress!!!


www.news.com.au

ASSISTED-SUICIDE advocate Jack Kevorkian, whose controversial tactics earned him the name Dr Death, intends to run for Congress.

Dr Kevorkian, who spent more than eight years in jail for the murder of a man whose videotaped assisted suicide was aired on national television, claims he actively helped 130 people die.

He vowed to continue to lobby for the legalisation of assisted suicide when he was released from jail last June but said he has no desire to go back to jail

Do this frail old man have a chance of winning? Should we pass legislation in the support of assisted suicide?

This issue should be discussed, but not sure that senate is the place. A committee of Drs, philosophers, religious leaders should be the ones to decide on this.
I see another problem for this man - his patients are no longer able to vote for him.....

So is your issue him running for congress, or that he does assisted suicides or both?
Going out on a limb here and for those who wish to attack my post , go for it.
I do support assisted suicide.
I find it completely ridiculous that we see animals as beneath us but will put them to death to keep them from suffering, but will not show the same compassion to our fellow man in the time of fatal illness when there is no hope of recovery.
Ask anyone who has had a loved one die in pain after suffering at length when no medication brought relief. It is gut wrenching to see someone you love go through that.
Why is it that it is not acceptable for someone to make their own decision to die? Because it says so in the bible?
Because they are condemned to be born again?Reincarnate again and learn the lessons they did not in this life?
Would it be a pain free life? Of course not. No life is pain free. Physically or emotionally. But every man and woman should have the right to choose how they die as they do how they live.
As for Dr. Death running for congress...
Considering his criminal record and lack of popularity...you would think he would have the brains to know better. I see this as a publicity stunt and nothing more.

Maybe when he gets in there, he can help some of the other congressmen kill themselves!
