Kevorkian's real desire

Compassionately helping terminally ill patients end their lives?

Nope. His real desire has been to perform experiments on living human beings as he kills them.

Wesley Smith goes over the history, starting with his first targets, prisoners and then moving on to those with illnesses, those in comas and "live fetuses in or out of the womb."
But the truly interesting story that will go mostly unwritten is how a clearly twisted personality — driven to his assisted suicide campaign by an obsession with human vivisection and a desire to exploit the weak and desperate for crass utilitarian purposes — became, for a time, the most famous and popular doctor in the world.
