So Will He Practice What He…Practiced?

So poor old Dr. Death is dying in prison.

May 26, 2006 — Today, on his 78th birthday, Jack Kevorkian, the man known as “Dr. Death,” is slowly dying in prison.
And, according to his lawyer, Kevorkian seems to have second thoughts about helping people die.
For years, Kevorkian was the center of a national debate around the highly controversial questions surrounding physician-assisted suicide or “mercy killing:” Do the terminally ill have the right to choose when and how they die? Do doctors have the ability, even an obligation, to help them die as they choose?
Now, as he sits in jail, Kevorkian may have had a change of heart — not about his dedication to the “death with dignity” movement, but on how he went about promoting it.

I’m not really concerned about his change of heart on his tactics, but rather, since

Less than a week ago, Morganroth publicly stated that doctors had told Kevorkian he had less than a year to live.
Kevorkian suffers from Hepatitis C, which he contracted during service in Vietnam. Morganroth said Kevorkian’s liver enzyme levels were three to four times above normal — a clear signal his liver was failing.
In light of his failing health, Kevorkian has requested a commutation of his sentence, a pardon that would get him released from prison.

will he choose the path he chose for so many others?

    One would hope so. But I doubt it.
