Despite his landmark decision last week to grant terminally ill patients the right to end their lives with a doctor’s help, Gov. Jerry Brown took a different course on Sunday and rejected Assembly Bill 159, the so-called “Right To Try” bill. The latter measure sought to allow terminally ill patients who have exhausted all other options to access experimental drugs, products or devices that have not yet been approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.
