California Democratic Governor Vetoes Life-Saving Drugs for Terminally Ill Patients

The Free Beacon [1] reported:

Californians who are terminally ill will not be able to access drugs with the potential to save or prolong their lives as a result of Gov. Jerry Brown’s veto of the Right to Try Act on Sunday.

AB 159, the California Right to Try Act, passed [2] the state assembly and senate with overwhelming bipartisan support.

“It’s disappointing that Governor Brown couldn’t see the need to allow Californians the right to fight to save their own lives,” said Assemblyman Ian Calderon (D., Whittier), who sponsored the legislation. “Both Democrats and Republicans wanted this for our California’s terminally ill.”
