PONTIAC, Michigan, Mar 26 ( – After giving his closing arguments yesterday euthanasia activist Jack Kevorkian resigned as his own lawyer today. Meanwhile the jury resumed its deliberations this morning.

Diane Coleman, founder of Not Dead Yet, told reporters that a decision in Kevorkian’s favour would be “devastating.” “It would mean open season for (Kevorkian) and others. Jack is the symbol on the front edge on euthanasia,” she said.

Euthanasia proponents were also present at the trial. Faye Girsh, president of the Hemlock Society, a “right-to-die” group, reminisced fondly about the Kevorkian snuff video saying “It’s the first time we have seen someone die on TV from euthanasia. it was so clearly not a crime.”
