A Statue Honoring Dr. Death?

A few years back I hosted a radio program with Myra Christopher on end of life issues and the subject of Dr. Jack Kevorkian came up. A caller to the program, obviously an older gentleman, said firmly, "We should erect a statue of Dr. Kevorkian in front of every hospital in the country."

Certainly, Dr. Kevorkian had his supporters and detractors. And it can be said that he had an impact on the public debate around physician assisted suicide and the end of life.

What do you think? What is the legacy of Dr. Jack Kevorkian?
