Freedom Partners Statement: House Passes Right to Try for Terminally-Ill

Post by Freedom Partners

Arlington, VA – Following today’s vote in the House of Representatives to approve Right to Try legislation for the terminally-ill, Freedom Partners Executive Vice President Nathan Nascimento issued the following statement:

“Tens of thousands of terminally-ill patients and their families are counting on Congress to give them the right to try, and today’s approval by the House of Representatives is a critical step towards making their hopes a reality. We are encouraged by its continued bipartisan support, and are hopeful that potentially life-saving treatments and medication will soon be available to those who need it most.

“While these patients have no time to waste, we strongly urge Senator McConnell to quickly take up this measure in the Senate and act on it with the urgency it deserves. President Trump is ready to sign this important legislation into law as soon as Congress can get it to his desk.”
