IN MEMORIAM

R.I.P. Dr. Kevorkian – The Man Americans Hated 10% More Than They Hate Us

Dr. Jack Kevorkian (pictured right with “Death-O-Matic”), the man who helped 130 terminal patients die via physician-assisted suicide, has died… without physician-assisted suicide. The 83-year-old patient at Beaumont Hospital in Royal Oak died of “pulmonary thrombosis when a blood clot from his leg broke free and lodged in his heart.” His niece Morganroth Kevorkian said, “It was peaceful. He didn’t feel a thing.”

Fun-fact: A recent Gallup poll reveals that Americans consider physician-assisted suicide 10 percent more morally wrong than they consider gay and lesbian relationships. On the plus side, they also consider our relationships 10 percent more morally acceptable than physician-assisted suicide! Six of one, half a dozen of the other!
