    So sad to hear . . . As Nelly_In_SJ said, you helped end many people's suffering. There is nothing wrong with wanting to end your life for needless suffering. R.I.P., Dr. Kevorkian.

    A shame that people think that human life is owned by an entity that they believe in, but who ignores massive human suffering. Has he died?
    Why was Jack condemned?
