Jimmy Kimmel's Heartbreaking Monologue: no parent should ever have to decide if they can afford to save their child’s life

Jimmy Kimmel opened his late-night show on Monday with an emotional speech revealing that his son — born just 10 days ago — had a heart defect. He then slammed Donald Trump for attempting to cut funding to the National Institutes of Health.

During the nearly 15-minute monologue, Kimmel couldn’t contain his tears at moments as he described the heartrending discovery just three hours after his son Billy was born that the child would need open-heart surgery.
