The Fifth Estate, CBC – “The Life and Death of Gloria Taylor”
Diagnosed with ALS (Lou Gehrig’s Disease), Gloria Taylor’s fight for her life was futile: she said she was only seeking a ‘dignified ending’. Over the past year, Linden MacIntyre spoke with Taylor many times as she experienced the ravages of the disease. But that was only one of her struggles. Taylor was also trying to win the legal right to a physician-assisted death should her life become unbearable. She agreed to let the fifth estate document that struggle, the private highs and lows, and the personal indignities. the fifth estate was there throughout it all, chronicling her perseverance, her unprecedented victory in court, and the battle by a determined government to reverse that decision.
