Brave New Bioethics Podcast: The Truth About Kevorkian


Jack Kevorkian will soon be out of jail, and the current edition of Brave New Bioethics explores the infamous career of "Dr. Death," including his desire to open euthanasia clinics, his disdain for people with disabilities, and his desire to engage in human vivisection.

Not mentioned, but worth mentioning is that Kevorkian's preying on depressed, disabled people--to the general applause of society--led the disability rights movement to engage the issue with full vigor. They were like the cavalry riding to the rescue, effectively preventing assisted suicide from metastasizing beyond the borders of Oregon.
