Raphael Cohen-Almagor, DPhil, Chair of the Department of Politics and International Politics at the University of Hull in Hull, England, wrote in The Right to Die with Diginity: An Argument in Ethics, Medicine, and Law published in 2001:

“Kevorkian’s missionary vigor, like any unqualified vigor, betrays the best interests of patients and ill serves the interests of society. The United States as well as other democracies should devise ways to stop Kevorkian and like-minded doctors, to think creatively to comply with the genuine desires of all patients in this modern, technologically advanced era of medicine, and to help doctors who feel that sometimes termination of life is necessary.”
