Bioethicist Wesley Smith writes, over at National Review Online, that a laudatory biopic is in the works about Jack "Dr. Death" Kevorkian. In do doing, Smith reminds us why even those who support (and I do not) a legal or moral right to assisted suicide should regard Kevorkian as a ghoul.

Listed below are links to weblogs that reference Kevorkian biopic?:
I read the NRO piece and Kevorkian does indeed sound odious.
For those of us who have some sympathy with the right-to-die movement, (and i'm not certain where I stand, exactly, but I do have sympathy), should we expect anything other than that the man who will do the most to push the legal establishment on this issue is going to be driven by some rather disturbing and disgusting motives? I don't think so.
He went too far and his motives (if the NRO article is correct) were indeed odious; but faced with a painful and degenerative disease and determined to stop her suffering, who else would/should one turn to?

Can anyone comment on the fairness and accuracy of Wesley Smith's piece?
