    Third Topic – HBO’s “You Don’t Know Jack” (Kevorkian)

    HBO has aired its film “You Don’t Know Jack,” of course, the story of the infamous Dr. Death, Jack Kevorkian, who gained notoriety in the late 80s and throughout the 90s for promoting and committing physician assisted suicide. Convicted of 2nd degree homicide in 1999, Kevorkian spent 8 years in prison. Widely assumed to be a positive portrayal of Kevorkian, one pro-life activist who helped to bring Kevorkian down, says “I don't think they glamorized him (Kevorkian). I think he came off as a pathetic little freak." We talk to Lynn Mills and Rita Marker from the International Anti-Euthanasia Task Force.
