June 15, (THAINDIAN NEWS) Jack Kevorkian, now 82, revealed in a recent interview that he has no regrets about killing more than 130 people in assisted suicides. He told interviewer, renowned physician and medical reporter Sanjay Gupta that the only thing he regrets is his birth.
Sanjay Gupta admitted that the interview was one of the few moments in his career as a medical reporter where he was at a loss for words. Before the interview began Dr. Jack Kevorkian told Sanjay Gupta that he has no regrets whatsoever about his deeds. The interview which threw light on the bizarre world of the doctor, had been highly anticipated by TV audience all over.
Sanjay Gupta admitted that the interview which was conducted in open air made him sweat in spite of the pleasant weather and Jack Kevorkian looked as composed and ‘cold’ as ever. The long interview revealed little about what Jack Kevorkian actually felt but Sanjay Gupta inferred that the infamous doctor was a supporter of ‘Patholysis’.
During the course of the interview Jack Kevorkian broke down the word to explain its correct meaning to Sanjay Gupta. He said that ‘path’ meant ‘disease or suffering’ and ‘lysis’ meant destruction.
He was also asked by Sanjay Gupta about 5 patients who did not show any trace of disease in an autopsy but he managed to divert the question towards the Ninth Amendment about people free to do anything without the consent of the government or any authority.
Jack Kevorkian, Sanjay Gupta admitted was the hottest topic in the medical world when he started out. The entire world was divided at the time regarding assisted suicide of terminally ill patients.
Jack Kevorkian was also imprisoned for broadcasting a patients death with his euthanasia machine.
