"I’m enjoying life now, and it feels good to be alive,” he said at the end of 'Dax’s Case.' “I still feel that it was wrong to force me to undergo what I had to to be alive."

Dax Cowart has died.

If bioethics is built around cases -- the Tuskegee syphilis experiment, the Seattle "God Committee," the case of Karen Ann Quinlan -- then the ordeal of Dax Cowart, a truly extraordinary man, lies at the very heart of the field.

The New York Times has an obituary, and Bill Winslade of UTMB Galveston, who knew Cowart well, has written a remembrance.
