What do you think of dr. kevorkian and his values?

What do you think of what he was doing? Do you agree that people should be able to choose when to end their lives? For those who dont know much about it:

He is most noted for publicly championing a terminal patient's right to die via euthanasia; he claims to have assisted at least 130 patients to that end. He famously said that "dying is not a crime."
The individuals themselves allegedly took the final action which resulted in their own deaths. Kevorkian allegedly assisted only by attaching the individual to a device that he had made.

Do you think it's fair that he got tried for murder and served time? Do you agree or disagree with what he did? What your thoughts on assisted suicide?
