Assisted-suicide advocate Jack Kevorkian says he still wants to see laws changed so assisted suicide is legal.

Kevorkian spoke by phone from prison with Detroit-area Fox affiliate WJBK, which broadcast part of the tape today.

He says he plans to work to have assisted suicide legalized, but won't break any laws doing it.

The retired pathologist was sentenced in 1999 to 10 to 25 years for second-degree murder. He's being paroled June 1 after serving a little over eight years, having gotten credit for good behavior. is happy to provide a forum for commenting and discussion.
