Peter Choo started this petition to Ministry of Health

In many countries, the government departments of health or medicine or physician associations do not allow dying patients to be treated with new methods even though it is sponsored, scientifically-backed and there is no other option for the dying patient who is then taken to palliative care i.e. make his last days as comfortable, painless as possible. But every patient will want to live but he has no right to decide this. Authorities conveniently brushed off as not evidence-based.

To avoid abuse of desperate patients, doctors themselves should be allowed to decide under the strict conditions of non-profit, no other option available for the patient, un-met need, and the method must be backed by significant scientific findings from reputable institutions.

Now it takes many years and cost hundreds of millions of dollars and gargantuan effort to get approval from authorities to allow compassionate treatment to a dying patient. There is an enormous gap in understanding cellular medicine ( reportedly the future of medicine especially regenerative medicine ) between conventional medical doctors and the doctors of philosophy (PhDs) who are scientists which lead to very protracted delays in deadly diseases treatment. Few medical doctors have a science qualification eg. molecular medicine.

The right-to-try should be the last wish of a dying patient and not third parties.
