Ohio's "Right to Try" Law Aims to Give Terminal Patients Access to Experimental Treatments
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.
