Geoffrey Fieger for Dr. Jack Kevorkian

Dr. Jack Kevorkian, also known as Dr. Death, was the center of debate at every dinner table – should a doctor be permitted to assist a patient in committing suicide if that’s what the patient wanted because of excruciating pain and a terminal illness. Prosecutors in Michigan said no and went after Dr. Kevorkian, who turned to Geoffrey Fieger to represent him. Fieger sits down with David Oscar Markus to discuss the fascinating criminal cases and the moral implications of Kevorkian’s actions.
