Jack Kevorkian says if he gets out of prison, he'll use the legal system to campaign for legalized assisted-suicide.

The former doctor spoke with MSNBC's Rita Cosby. Kevorkian says he won't help another person to die or encourage other doctors to do it if paroled in 2007. He says he has some regret for the actions that landed him in jail.

Kevorkian is being held at the Thumb Correctional Facility in Lapeer. He's serving a ten- to 25-year sentence for second-degree murder.

He was convicted of giving a fatal injection to a Lou Gehrig's disease patient in 1998.

Governor Granholm has said she won't consider pardoning him.
