Through this essay Kevorkian proves how assisted suicides help end people¶s suffering. One example of Janet suffering from her disease is when she had to have her husband show her ³«on another piece of paper how to form the cursive µA¶«´ (321) for a required signature. The patients of Kevorkian are happy that their lives are ending without suffering. A perfect example of this is when Janet is committing suicide and her dying words are, ³Thank you, thank you.´ (323) This essay proves that Kevorkian is committing assisted suicides to help end other peoples¶ suffering.
