SARS doctor Donald Low's posthumous plea for assisted suicide
In YouTube video, he says there's a need for 'dying with dignity'
In an impassioned YouTube video shot eight days before he died of a brain tumour, Dr. Donald Low, the microbiologist credited with guiding Toronto through the 2003 SARS crisis, makes a final plea for Canada to change the law to allow assisted suicide.
“I know I’m going to die, what worries me is how I’m going to die,” the 68-year-old Low says in the video.
He was diagnosed with terminal brain cancer seven months ago and died on Sept. 18. Low was the microbiologist in chief at Toronto's Mount Sinai Hospital and a professor at the University of Toronto.
