This letter to the editor, written by 3 physicians, criticizes Dr. Jack Kevorkian who assisted the suicide of a woman with Alzheimer’s disease. It questions his judgement, & asserts that many patients are confused about life & death decisions, & often change their minds in time. It concludes with the contention that physicians have no legitimate role in assisting suicide. (VM)
