The Fifth Estate The Life and Death of Gloria Taylor: Assisted Suicide

Gloria Taylor, a B.C. woman stricken with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS or Lou Gehrig's disease), was the first Canadian ever to win the right to ask a doctor for help in dying. The Fifth Estate chronicles her struggle with mortality as she fights publicly to change the law over the course of what would be the last year of her life. This documentary hears from those on both sides of the debate over what some call “dying with dignity.”
