In brief, the bill helps terminally sick people from the mental anguish of having to go from country to country to try and find a cure for their terminal diagnosis. The result is more terminally ill patients will now gain legal access to so-called experimental drugs that could extend their lives.

The concept for the Right to Try is simple. The experimental treatments now allowed in this Right to Try Act of 2017 gives a clear message to America’s terminally ill that there is hope if they want it.

The bill will take effect as soon as President Donald Trump signs it into law; while the good news is this measure to allow experimental drugs for those in serious need has been passed by the Senate and House; while this is good news because the bill is expected to be signed into law without any real hurdles or issues from the White House, state FDA officials on the Food and Drug Administration website.

The bill is also viewed as “somewhat controversial" because not all people in American society think it is Right to Try and extend human life with high-tech drugs and other treatments. Overall, there are high hopes this new bill will help save the lives of thousands of Americans; while the bill has been backed by Democrats and Republicans who are in solidarity when it comes to helping people extend their lives with the help of new drug treatments.
