California is poised to become the 25th state that adopts the Right To Try—a law that will help terminally ill patients try promising new medicines pending final approval from the Food and Drug Administration. But Governor Jerry Brown might veto the Right To Try. We need your help to persuade Governor Brown to do what’s best for terminally ill patients who should have the right to fight to save their own lives.
You can call Governor Brown’s office at (916) 445-2841. You can send him an email through this form: https://govnews.ca.gov/gov39mail/mail.php. You can also send him a message on Twitter at @JerryBrownGov and through Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/jerrybrown.
More than 1 million Americans die from diseases each year. They deserve a chance to try the same medicines that a lucky few already are safely using in clinical trials.
The California Legislature voted overwhelmingly to join a bipartisan coalition of states that understand people who are dying simply do not have time to wait. The Right To Try has been signed into law by every governor who has received the legislation including the governors of Colorado, Florida, Illinois, Texas, and Virginia. It would be a shame if Governor Jerry Brown became the first governor to veto the Right To Try and prevents California from helping very sick people in their most desperate hours.
Will you please take one minute right now to ask Governor Brown to sign the Right To Try law by calling his office at office at (916) 445-2841. Or send him an email: https://govnews.ca.gov/gov39mail/mail.php.
Thank you for your support.
