Abstract:

In the late 1980s, 61-year-old former pathologist Dr. Jack Kevorkian launched a crusade to provide what he considered a humane and dignified option for the terminally ill--assisted suicide. Aided by his loyal friend Neal Nicol, and his older sister Margo Janus, Kevorkian begins offering his "death counseling" services to a grateful and burgeoning clientele. He earns the support of Hemlock Society activist Janet Good and the wrath of the county prosecutor's office. Repeatedly arrested, it was thanks to talented attorney Geoffrey Fieger that Kevorkian was repeatedly exonerated. But as the national news media catapulted him to notoriety, Kevorkian continued his work, risking everything in his fervor to change the prevailing laws and challenge society's attitude towards the right to die.
