"Medicide" the killing of medicine

by Al Lemmo, Feb. 18, 1996

To the Editor:

"Medicide", a term popularized by Jack Kevorkian, literally means "the killing of medicine". This is what Kevorkian and the juridical exhibitionist who represents him will accomplish if they succeed in turning physicians into agents of death.

Let's not succumb to the temptation to put the sick out of our misery. Let's not kill the medical profession.
