Trump Signs #RightToTry Law With A Sweet Moment [VIDEO]

The law dubbed the “Right To Try” was signed by President Trump today. It deals with giving those with terminal illnesses the option to use medications that have passed Phase 1 FDA trials, the reason being that by the time the medication in question has passed all the FDA requirements, the patient may have died waiting for it.

There is a movement that has been pushing this for a long time, and there are serious concerns about it as well. But for those who are dealing with the reality of a terminal illness, this law represents a chance to live, even knowing the risks.

The president signed it into law today at the White House.

And this most adorable moment happened.

That young man is Jordan McLinn.

Young Jordan is also a good friend of Vice President Pence, as the Washington Post reported in March 2017.

“Where’s Jordan?” asked Vice President Pence as he walked into the White House meeting of terminally ill patients and their families. All eyes shifted, and Pence made a beeline for a 7-year-old boy from Indianapolis with a broad grin.

Back home, when Pence was Indiana’s governor, Jordan McLinn and his battle with Duchenne muscular dystrophy had helped inspire passage of a state “right-to-try” law intended to give the desperately ill access to medications not yet approved by the Food and Drug Administration. Fast-forward to Washington, where Pence is now in a position to encourage national right-to-try legislation.

“We’re going to get this done,” he assured Jordan’s mother, Laura McLinn, and the other families gathered last month.

And now Jordan gets to hug the president on this special day for him.

What a genuinely sweet and touching, and very human, moment for everyone. God bless you in your fight, Jordan.

    This is important. I’ve had terminal cases in my family and it is the most draining and humbling experince. When the options are die either way or possibly cure/manage the condition what do people have to lose? These are willing participants that might help unlock a cure or treatment and for that I thank them.

    Duchenne muscular dystrophy, Damn.

    The problem is those drugs just don’t work. Check the clinical data.

    A sweet lovely moment for the day. Jordan is such a cutie!

    “What a genuinely sweet and touching, and very human, moment for everyone.”… Very true, of course that means the leftist idiots go full rutabaga over it… I’m sure they’ll compare him to Joseph Mengele or something within 24 hrs…
