Film about Jack Kevorkian

April 10, 2010

Hi there,

It has been a slow week in the bioethics world, although there always seems to be something happening. If you notice news which might escape our notice, please send them along to us.

One development is more on the artistic side – a film with megastars Al Pacino and Susan Sarandon about Jack Kevorkian. I’ve managed to track down the YouTube trailer. Whatever your views might be, I think you’ll agree that a very sympathetic film about the world’s most prominent euthanasia activist means something. But what, exactly? That Americans are more sympathetic? That Hollywood is more sympathetic?

We learned from our recent survey that about 30% of our readers are on Facebook, so we’ve made it easier to post on Facebook from the newsletter. Try it out!
