Congressman Joe Wilson's Statement on the Right to Try Act

Washington, D.C. – Congressman Joe Wilson (R-SC) released the following statement regarding the House passage of the Trickett Wendler, Frank Mongiello, Jordan McLinn, and Matthew Bellina Right to Try Act of 2018.

“The Right to Try Act creates an alternative pathway for terminally ill patients to try prescription medicine that has not yet been approved by the FDA, but may provide relief for their aliments. This legislation is based upon informed consent to ensure that all patients are provided with the details necessary to make an educated decision. I am grateful for the opportunity to support legislation that may provide some families with access to life saving medicine.”
