    Jack Kevorkian — embraced as a compassionate crusader and reviled as a murderous crank — died early this morning.

    Known as Dr. Death even before launching his fierce advocacy and practice of assisted suicides, Kevorkian, 83, died at Beaumont Hospital in Royal Oak, where he had been hospitalized with kidney and heart problems. His attorney, Mayer Morganroth, said it appears Kevorkian suffered a pulmonary thrombosis when a blood clot from his leg broke free and lodged in his heart. With Kevorkian was his niece Ava Janus and Morganroth.

    'assisted suicide' is a fancy pseudo term for murder

    If you need assistance, it's not suicide.

    How I wish he could return for an hour or two to let the world know what God thought about his lifelong crusade...as it stands now, I'm sure there are others ready to carry it on.

    He did bring up, by his actions, discussions I bet, about those dying and their rights.

    Eternal rest grant unto him, O Lord,
    and let perpetual light shine upon him.
    May he rest in peace. Amen :crossrc:

    5 reasons to pray for Jack Kevorkian's soul...
    When I heard that Dr. Jack Kevorkian died, my first thought was to pray for his soul. Did I want to? Not especially, but it was the same thought that occurred to me when Osama bin Laden and Saddam Hussein passed away. While we often find it difficult to pray for people who did "bad things", it's something that we must do.

    I'm from Detroit and Jack used to sell CDs of his flute music. The cover of his CD had him standing near a Lily. It was called "A Very Still Life." That and his obsession with death used to creep me out. I used to wonder if his motives were truly to help terminally ill people or what.

    Did you know he did paintings with his own blood mixed in?

    No. :sick: But that sounds like something he'd do. He was totally obsessed with death and dying (in my opinion). I don't think he was as "helpful" as he tried to make himself out to be. He seemed to get too excited regarding assisted suicide. I couldn't listen to him when he'd come on TV cuz he came off as so creepy. Never mind the time he dressed up like it was the 1700's and rode a bike around town--just plain weird.

    Yeah... he was different. You should have heard him talk at his art show.

    He seemed a bit unbalanced.

    Well we should pray for him anyway. God can apply the prayers as He sees fit.

    I think he got off on killing people. That is my personal opinion.

    I think there was an HBO movie too. I didn't watch it but it also made him a hero from what I've read.
