The OP is false. I won't agree a clickbait thread is good.

For some, in the case of a terminal disease the risk factor becomes diminished. For others, they may want to continue for as long as they can.

I don't know the details of your case. I don't know what risks may have been involved with the treatment. If the chances of death or debilitation were high (or completely unknown), I may have opted out.

I think that a patient should be able to make an informed decision. But without data on risk/benefit how informed can that decision be?

she was probably in one of the states that already allows this.
I'm reading into it because people keep making me do this.

Pence did it for Indiana..

33 states..

It's NOT 50 states..



An overwhelming percentage of the public supports such laws. Researchers and health policy experts, however, believe they can be harmful because they can raise false hope and sometimes cause suffering.


And Trump is saying he wants it to be MORE available.

This is not click bait. It only remains to be seen what may come of it.

never understood why they don't give a bottle of vodka but for many ailments give a good 420.. I mean I get that big pharma and they will lose many billions but damn why haven't the people fought to get it? it's coming slowly I'm in a bad state IL.. just sick of it.. I've drunk many bottles of booze and quit smoking because of my job years ago but honestly who would you rather work with a hungover asshat or a modern day smoker who is easy to deal with? and reldra I honestly owe you an apology.. i talk smack but understand where you come from.. (my niece stopped by today and is exactly like you) I will always love her no matter what she does, so I am wrong to treat you different.

Thinking out loud.. Looking ahead some. If they loosen restrictions on terminally Ill patients. Won't that eliminate the need for trials(chance of placebo) for drugs that treat terminally Ill conditions? Why risk a trial placebo when your life is at stake.

That would effectively create a market for big pharm to employ deathbed chasers to get patients signed up all over the country for experimental drugs treatments and stream line the human testing process.

Remember, in a medical trial like that, some people get the experimental drug while others get the normal drug so they can do a comparison. Half the people at most are actually getting the new drug. The placebo is a normal drug used for the condition. So when you sign up for this, what are you getting treated with. The patient does not get to know, otherwise it can cause problems with the evaluation of the evidence. Also, some of these trials actually kill people.

You know, that comment made me think of Albert Einstein. They say that he had a lot of trouble tying his shoes too! If you had someone in your family that had been waiting 10+ years for a treatment to be approved by the FDA, I'm sure they would be in support of this 100%, whether Trump is involved or not!

Actually, this is not a "clickbait" thread at all. If you look at ALL of the threads I have written, mostly all of them are about wanting a cure for a disease that the medical establishment doesn't offer. I don't write political threads per-se. If I get cured, I might not be able to say exactly what I did because of non-disclosure agreements, etc. I WILL tell ATS if this leads to a cure for me though. I will also give the steps I did to make it happen, assuming that I can. Imagine having to be stuck with syringes your whole life, and having life-threatening seizures, waking up in a hospital after an MRI, and being told that "you're a medical miracle. You should have been a vegetable from this one..." and those sorts of things. I will say this. With 94% of her political contributions coming from big pharma, do you think Hillary would have offered opportunities like this?

He amazes me by the day, In such a short period doing all that amazes me .. And still so many oppose him I don't understand that. I've never seen a president see executing his promises so fast either if it's either bad for some and good for others he sure lives up his promises.

Is your criterion the number of EOs issued?
I guess you weren't paying as much attention before.

Trump is on track to begin his fourth week in the White House having issued 12 executive orders. While questions have surfaced over Trump’s use of executive power, recent history demonstrates that Trump’s actions are in line with past presidents.

By the end of his third week in office in 2009, President Barack Obama had issued 14 executive orders.

Right, then I suppose that he's done more urgent public requests that make it more visible than Obama did?
Anyway not that I know if he's doing the world any better but for many in the US and of course overseas he sure knows how to stir issues we all seem to be wanting from our governments.

Not speaking for others I mean, more a personal view I guess. Maybe at the end, it wouldn't turn out that great for us, but hey ill survive

And everyone who tries to get in to every experimental drug does? Or only a select few can?

FDA Says No to Dying Patients Seeking Access to Experimental Drugs or Treatments
www.anh-usa.org...


The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has a program, called Expanded Access to Investigational Drugs for Treatment Use, which grants about 1,000 requests a year.

You should tell this man he doesn't need to argue. And that if Trump gets him the medication he was denied Trump didn't do it because you got yours.

Last Thursday, I testified before the Senate on a bill that could mean life or death for me.
