Jack Kevorkian, who was paroled Friday after 8 years in prison, says he won't be involved in any more suicides—except perhaps his own. "When I’m going to do it, I’m going to do it right,” he tells the New York Times. But prison hasn't blunted the passion for phsyician-assisted suicides that earned the combative former pathologist the sobriquet Dr. Death.
Kevorkian is outraged that only one state—Oregon—has legalized the procedure hs performed 130 times to help terminally ill patients end their suffering and challenge the law. In his chat with the Times he calls the government "tyrannical," the public "sheep" and his opponents "religious fanatics or nuts." Prison, he added, was "loud and boring."
