Jack Kevorkian and Colorado's Right to Die Movement
Although Dr. Jack Kevorkian’s name is often synonymous with the right-to-die campaigns around the world, people were fighting for control of their demise long before Kevorkian’s name shot to the forefront of the debate.
While Kevorkian, pictured, was locked up for assisting a suicide that he filmed and sent to 60 minutes, the right-to-die movement gained steam and settled into a headquarters right here in Denver.
Now that Jack’s back in the press with a decision to run for Congress, even if he’s never elected, the right-to-die debate is likely to follow him back into the spotlight. -- Luke Turf
