Cruel Hypocrisy of Governor Jerry Brown

Bradley Mattes   |   October 28, 2015

When California Governor Jerry Brown signed the assisted suicide law, he stated if he were dying it, “would be a comfort to consider the options afforded by this bill. And I wouldn’t deny that right to others.”  But there’s one basic right he’s denying to dying patients.  He’ll pay for the poison to kill them, but he actually vetoed legislation that would circumvent the bureaucratic FDA and allow dying patients the opportunity to try experimental drugs as a last-ditch effort to save their lives.  Instead of the right-to die, it’s called the right-to-try.  It was an act of mercy that almost unanimously sailed through the California legislature.  But Governor callously and brutally vetoed legislation to give dying patients the tiniest bit of hope.  I call this an act of cruel hypocrisy.
