Girl has successful lung transplant surgery after fighting rule

Sarah Murnaghan, a 10-year-old girl who needed a new set of lungs in order survive, is out of transplant surgery. Her family says there were no issues during her lung transplant.

Girl's long-awaited lung transplant complete

Sarah received organs that had belonged to an adult. Since it's rare for children's organs to become available, the Murnaghan family fought to change a rule that bans children under the age of 12 from being on an adult transplant list. They ultimately went through the courts and received an injunction that allowed Sarah be placed on the adult list.

Sarah's ordeal raises the question: Does America need to change its transplant policies?
