When the diagnosis is grim as all options exhausted, would you submit to treatment if the proper trials and testing weren't yet complete?  A new Ohio law signed by Governor  Kasich this month gives terminally ill patients the right to try experimental drugs and other treatments. Some say the law peddles false hope. Advocates, like State Representative Marlene Anielski, say patients deserve to decide. 

Guests: 

State Rep. Marlene Anielski,  (R), Ohio House District 6  
Suzanne Rivera, Ph.D., Vice President for Research, Assistant Professor of Bioethics, Case Western Reserve University  
Brian Wolf, Broadview Heights Council Ward 2 
Jennifer Hendryx, Advocate, Battling Cancer
