Kevorkian: 'The ending of a life
can never be a good moment'

NEW YORK (AP) - Self-styled
suicide doctor Jack Kevorkian says
it isn't easy watching someone die,
but it's something all doctors must
do.
Kevorkian told "Newsweek"
magazine that tears came to his eyes
several times as he helped someone
commit suicide. The interview ap-
pears in the magazine's March 8
edition, which goes on sale today.
Kevorkian has helped 15 people
die in Michigan since June 1990.
His work led state lawmakers to en-
act a ban on assisted suicides, first
set to take effect March 30.
But on Thursday, after lawmak-
ers moved up the effective date,
Gov. John Engler signed a bill im-
mediately outlawing assisted sui-
cide. Violators can be sentenced to
up to four years' imprisonment and a
$2,000 fine.
Asked how he feels while help-
ing someone die, Kevorkian said,
"It's tough on me. You've got to
steel yourself. Every doctor does. If
a doctor didn't do that, he couldn't
function.
"Several times, tears have come
to my eyes. These are not happy

moments. The ending of a human
life can never be a good moment."
Kevorkian also said none of the
people he has helped showed a fear
of death.
"I've had all kinds of religions,"
he added, "and not one wanted a re-
ligious consultation. Religion is to-
tally irrelevant to what they want."
Also last week, Macomb County
Carl Marlinga said he was consider-
ing filing homicide charges against
Kevorkian after receiving a docu-
ment indicating that a 70-year-old

Kevorkian repeatedly has vowed
to defy the ban. He repeated the
pledge to "Newsweek."
"I will help a suffering human
being at the right time when the pa-
tient's condition warrants it, despite
anything else," he said during the
interview at the Southfield office of
his attorney, Geoffrey Fieger.
"That's what a doctor should do."
He said he didn't fear being
jailed for his actions.
"Well, I've been there twice and
I wasn't frightened," Kevorkian

'I will help a suffering human being at the right
time when the patient's condition warrants it,
despite anything else.'
- Dr. Jack Kevorkian

man that Kevorkian helped die may
have changed his mind.
The American Civil Liberties
Union has said it will file a lawsuit
Monday seeking to strike down the
new law.

said. "When you walk down the
aisle with holding cells on each side,
and someone spots you and then
there's suddenly an uproar of cheers,
and hands come through the bars to
shake your hand, would you worry?
"That happened both times."
