Jack Kevorkian, MD, a retired pathologist known as 'Dr. Death' who aided over 130 people in ending their lives, in a 1990 interview with Cornerstone magazine, stated:

“I believe there are people who are healthy and mentally competent enough to decide on suicide. People who are not depressed. Everyone has a right for suicide, because a person has a right to determine what will or will not be done to his body. There’s no place for people to turn today who really want to commit suicide. Teenagers, and the elderly especially, have nowhere to turn. But when they come to me, they will obey what I say because they know they’re talking to an honest doctor.”
