Kevorkian Release

Priests for Life


Amarillo, TX – Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, issued the following statement on the release from prison of Jack Kevorkian, who served eight years of a 10-to-25-year sentence for second degree murder.

“Jack Kevorkian belongs in jail.  He may be free, but his philosophy has imprisoned many people in their fear, which has led to the taking of their lives.  He has made society a more dangerous place for the disabled and the infirm.”
