Jack “Dr. Death” Kavorkian spent 8 years in prison for second-degree manslaughter because he administered a lethal injection to Thomas Youk, 52, an adult male with full mental capacity who was in the final stages of ALS. Thomas Youk contacted Dr. Kavorkian for help in ending his life. He was living with an incurable disease, in extreme pain, and wanted to die.

After allowing the television show 60 Minutes to air a recording of the euthanization of a patient, the court put their foot down and Kevorkian was charged with second degree murder. He served eight years and in 2007 was released on good behaviour with the condition that he would not assist in another suicide again. On June 3rd, 2011 the doctor died at age 83 from liver problems. As I see it, Dr. Kevorkian had every right to assist people with their deaths. As he once said, himself, “dying is not a crime”.

Even in Britain where euthanasia or PAS is illegal, people and mostly physicians practice it. In May 1999, a British general practitioner Dr. David Moor was prosecuted of murdering a patient. He was accused of murdering 85-year-old terminally ill cancer patient George Liddell by administering a fatal dose of the painkiller, Diamorphine. Although he was not found guilty in murder but he had given drugs to that patient. Also he admitted in a press interview to having helped up to 300 people to die ("BBC News”).
Kevorkian allegedly only assisted in the patients’ deaths by attaching a device to them, in which the patients would press a button to finally end their life painlessly and on their own terms. Is this right? On March 26, 1999 Kevorkian was charged with second-degree murder and the delivery of a controlled substance, since he lost his medical license. Kevorkian went to his trial and disband his attorneys. After a two day trial the Michigan jury found Kevorkian guilty to second-degree murder and was charged with 10 to 25 years in prison.

The jury ruled that he should be sent to the electric chair; however, the U.S. Supreme Court struck down the death penalty and he was to receive life in prison. Due to the overpopulation in the Texas prison he was sent to, McDuff was quietly released from prison into an unsuspecting citizenry (“Deterrent” 3). Shortly after he was released, Texas prostitutes were coming up missing and were later found dead. McDuff continued killing unsuspecting women for four years after he was quietly released from prison. He was later caught because there was a witness that claimed to see what turned out to be his car speeding away from where one of his victims disappeared from.
