News Release: Statement on Parole of Jack Kevorkian

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Michigan Catholic Conference released the following statement after the Michigan Parole Board announced Jack Kevorkian will be paroled on June 1, 2007.

“The State has a human rights obligation to provide its prisoners with proper medical and psychological treatment; unfortunately, the parole board has instead scheduled for release an individual who perpetrated the crime of murder over 130 times. There must be a proper balance between compassion and justice. Unfortunately, justice was not served in this circumstance. Assisted suicide represents an affront to the dignity of the human person, a crime against life and an attack on humanity.”

Michigan Catholic Conference is the official public policy voice of the Catholic Church in this state.
